Hey Everyone,

Looking for everyone''s thoughts on this diamond. WF has a diamond on hold until the end of the business day and need some input. WF has not looked at the diamond yet, but did say that it was supposedly eye clean. Seems like a really good price so I don''t want to pass it up if it is good.

I have attached the AGS Cert., however do not have any images.

1.84TCW
AGS Excellent 1
7.78-7.82X4.86
G
Si2
polish:excellent
symmetry:excellent

That''s ok! Looks good so far, but I''m wondering why it got a 1, and not 0. Do you know?

I guess I''m not sure what you are referring to when you say a 1 and not a 0 are you talking about the cut grade or something else?

I just asked them to bring it in to see if it is really eye clean or not. So it should be here in a day or so and hopefully I can post some images on here that might help.

Ya, everything looks good to me by the numbers. Weird, maybe it is the new Gold standard.

Looks like excellent for polish and sym that''s why it is a 1. (think that is correct, if I am wrong forgive me)

Cherrick02 - seems like it might be a great stone. Can''t wait to see all the pics!!!!

I think you''re right Kt. After squinting realllly hard, it does say that.


Cherrick, the highest grade for these would be Ideal. However, you will never see the difference between that and EX, so I think this may be a great stone. That should knock the price down some, without sacrificing anything visually!

But I thought DQR/Gold report only use Ex as their highest polish/symm grade? Might be wrong.

May be right too.

Cherrick, they recently changed their grading reports, so just ask WF.

IS/ASET looks good, wondering if it is eye-clean. Did WF confirm that it is now that they have seen it?

I actually have not spoken to them yet, however they told me they wouldn''t send me the pic''s if it wasn''t eye clean. Slightly nervous about that myself because everyone has their own definition of eye clean.

Hmmm, I bet I could see that black spec in the middle if I squinted. Definitely ask them what their definition is and from how far away from the face, at what angles, etc.

Make extra sure it is eyeclean to your standards.

I agree. Can you afford to have it sent to you first so you can check it out yourself? I think that would be prudent with this particular stone. Other than that, the light return looks very good on it!

Thank you to everyone for your responses! As far as having the diamond shipped to me so I can determine if it is "eye clean" to my standards would I pay the cost to have it shipped to me and then back to WF? What would be your recommended company to have it shipped Fed EX, UPS, etc? Also any info on what I should do to ensure the diamond is insured properly if something were to happen to it?

Great, thanks for the info. I found another diamond on their website and am wondering if this is any better. It does cost about $3K more though and it''s TCW is less, is it worth it to pay more and get a smaller diamond, do you think the size would be noticeable? I had initially been looking at TCW of 1.77
1.668 AGS
Ideal Cut
7.71-7.75X4.64
Depth 60%
Table 57%
Girdle:Thin to slightly thick
SI2
D
Fluor:Negligible
Crown: 34.1
Pavilion: 40.6
Polish:Excellent
Symmetry:Excellent
