Lab grown diamond critique. I have done a ton of research but it is still confusing. Would you read the cert and give an opinion?

Did you run it through the HCA? I've used up all my analysis chances with HCA, haha. It depends on what you're looking for and your own individual balance between cut/color/clarity/size. What are you prioritizing? What are your minimums?

FWIW, I just created another thread with a 1.26ct G/SI2 round brilliant which has neither perfect cut, nor color (blue nuance), nor clarity (metallic inclusions), but is cheap at $1560. :lol: So, that's my personal balance! Til I know more about what your priorities are, I can't give you any advice (nor can I run an HCA) so I think I'm pretty useless to you at present. ;))

Thank you for your response. I learned of the HCA after I posted that, paid to get a key and ran the numbers. It seems it is a good stone, according to their outcome

Specs look very good.

14.5% crown height and a 58% table with the 40.7/34.5 pavilion and crown angles respectively will likely mean a smidge more brilliance than fire, but that's an assumption based on the diamond that I recently bought for my wife, which also has a 14.5% crown and 58% table, but a 40.8/34.6 PA/CA.

H&A images look great for the one you selected:
