Hi everyone/anyone Lorelei if you are out there. I have come across another diamond which seems to be ok although only 5.4 tvp on holloway cut advisor. Can you tell if this stone can be recut? I don't think it has too much sparkle/brilliance. Eagerly awaiting a reply from someone

Wow, that is what I call a quick response. Thank's Lorelei and Karl. I can purchase this stone privately for a very good price, so I thought it was worth a try (if you go back through my posts you will see my other rings and ideally I would love to get a diamond of this size or close to. To get one close in quality to my 1.15ct would be very expensive and not in the budget right now. So was hoping this one might be a suitable candidate. Is it worth having a look at in person or should I not waste my time. It is GIA certed and I checked it out on their website.
I have seen quiet a few J Colours on the forum and they look great..........
LOL - no worries Mon! There are different levels of cut as you know and the issue with this diamond is the steep pavilion angle so it is hard to say how dull or bad it would look without seeing it. Some lesser cuts can look worse in some lights than in others and depending on the proportions also as can the tolerances of the individual observing the diamond.Date: 1/31/2009 9:06:42 AM
Silly question, of course it would be dull, its a less than average cut. Sorry it's after 1pm in the morning here, sandman's coming lol .....Thank's Lorelei
