When I pricescope your stats I get anywhere from $1K less to a couple hundred less on in house diamonds with somewhat similar depth/table. Do you have an IS image of the stone? It would be nice to see at least very good symmetry, but have you seen this stone with your own eyes and did you love it? Do you feel that you must have D color?

Thanks for the insight Ideal Rock. I actually do have an idealscope image of the diamond, however, I am really having a hard time interpreting what exactly the image is telling me (i.e. if this is a good image or if I should be concerned). I have not actually seen the diamond myself as I found it online. I would prefer a D color diamond but would be willing to go down to an E or F if the price justified it and if it upgraded the other aspects of the ring (i.e. got me closer to a more ideal cut/ increased the carat size).

only ags labs grade princess cuts as ''ideal'' of course this diamond could not even get close to the ideal grading with good/very good polish/symmetry, so take the description of ''ideal'' here with a grain of salt.
i would absolutely recommend going with a lower color and getting a better cut. it doesnt'' matter what color your diamond is, if it''s not well cut it won''t look as good.
