by hopeididok » Feb 10, 2001 Hey diamond folks. Really great website here, it really helped me a great deal. I just purchased an engagement ring for my girlfriend and was hoping to get some opinions on how I did, if possible. Its a marquise brillant cut, 0.7 carat, I color, SI2, Depth - 68%, Table - 60%, Polish/Symmetry - Good, No Flourescene, Girdle- Medium to Very Thick, Culet - None, Length/width ratio - 1.78:1. This is all of the information I have available to me. I checked the chart provided for marquise diamonds on the website and all of the factors graded out from excellent to acceptable. I paid $1450. I tried my best to stay within my budget, while at the same time trying to find a balance as it pertained to the 4 Cs. Any comments you have about my purchase would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
