    Looks like a great stone. An ASET would be nice as added "insurance" to check out the stone, otherwise, I see no reason not to get it.

    I think I have seen this before. [​IMG]
    It is stone 1 (I believe) in the comparison I did last month.
    I brought this diamond in and it was my second favorite. The other I bought. This is a nice 4 step in the Pavillion cut. Very semetrical. An exceptional stone. Well priced, as I remember. I just liked the proportions of the stone I got.
    You can read the comments here: https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/calling-out-experts-emerald-cut-comparison-help-me-decide-b-t-these-3.69709/
    I am not saying that there are not better out there, but I would say it was the best I had seen in 2-3 weeks of looking, it is just that I found the one I bought the same day. If you check out my other threads, most of them center on emerald cuts. Storm, Hest, and Chrono among others will impart great advice on this subject.
    Good luck in your search.
    Regards,
    Mario

    I think it''s lovely. We can get overly critical on here, IMO. I would buy it, and see what I think it real life. It is NOT a dog in anyway.

    I like the Aset. Great memory, Mario, yes, we have seen this stone before. I still think it is a pretty EC and would buy it if I had the funds.[​IMG]

    just my opinion - in an emerald cut or asscher cut, I would usually tend to go VS2 or higher clarity, because that cut is not as forgiving to flaws. I would be sure it is eye clean enough for you before buying.

    The stone is a VS1 (which is a cleaner grade than a VS2) and I'm very sure it'll be eye clean. I can't even find the inclusion(s) in the magnified picture.

    OOPS! SORRY!!!!!!

    Read that too quickly while doing other things at work. Thought I saw SI1. so sorry - just ignore my tired, before-coffee self.

    Excellent diamond, I wish my fiance had your attention span (or PS) when he bought my EC!!

    Mario,
    That was an excellent link with good descriptions. Just a couple questions. I noticed you said the one you bought was very fiery. When you looked at the 1.02E how would you rate the sparkle, and fire? Did you find it something that was very concerning to you? Did the diamond look very elongated? I prefer the more tradional look of an emerald (less squarish). If you did not purchase the 1.15D do you think you would have purchased the 1.02E? Be honest :) anything else you want to mention about the diamond would be appreciated!


    Another question for anyone out there. The ring setting I am looking at has tapered Baguette diamonds on the side with the emerald mounted in the center. The accompanying wedding band though will not fit flush against the e-ring. What are your opinions about the band not flush with the e-ring? any thoughts

    Thanks
