Well I finally did it!!! i have been looking for months and have had 2 diamonds that I liked sell out from underneath me, so once I found this one pop up, I had to buy it. From what I have seen at other dealers I think I got a great deal. So here it is:

Diamond

The specs are as follows:
1.71cts
SI1
I
Depth: 59.9%
Table: 58%
Crown: 33.5
Pavillion: 41

Price ~ $10.4K

So there it is. I would love to hear what other people think about this diamond and any concerns that they would have (no sugar coating necessary if you have concern). Obviously I will check it over VERY closely when I get it in a few days, so also wanted to ask if there was anything in particular that I should be looking for.

And just in case anybody was curious, this is the setting I am getting: Setting

Looks good. Maybe check that it is eye-clean and have it independently appraised? Need that for insurance too.

congrats! Pretty setting. I''m sure when it''s set, it all will look fabulous! Please don''t forget to insure it. Chubb insurance has been great (if you need a recommendation)

Looks good from the numbers. You'll want to view it under an idealscope, and make sure it's eye clean. Price is fine. Looks like a potential winner!

Please post pics!

Both the diamond and the setting look good.

Examine the diamond carefully with and without a 10x loupe.

The diamond looks promising from the info supplied, see what you think when you see it.
