I'm considering buying a H&A 1.33 G VVS2, 60.2d 56t, ex/ex, no cu/no fl, 7.15 x 7.17 x 4.32. I am supposed to get a Sarin analysis tomorrow. It is not's branded H&A but they say they have had very good experiences with the manufacturer, who has told them it's a beautiful cut with a good H&A pattern, though with some cleavage in the hearts and slightly imperfect arrows as well. Price will probably be in the neighborhood of $9000. Any thoughts? Is the price right? Am I losing a lot in performance compared to a perfect H&A pattern (or an Eight Star or a Hearts of Fire?) Is it true that an H&A of this kind will look whiter than a G because of the brilliance of the cut (and if so, is it equivalent to an F, an E, or what)? Thanks for any insights.
