Hi guys,

I'm totally new here and I've been researching diamonds for a couple weeks now. I've come across this diamond and was wondering what caliber diamond this falls into. I have some images to share. Supposedly it's an excellent cut. It's considerably cheaper than another option i was looking at with almost identical specs so i'm wondering if this diamond is lacking somewhere that I can't see. The jeweler told me this diamond is visually more appealing than the more expensive diamond.. which blows my mind! :think: :naughty:

You can see that it has some slight leakage under the table but I dont think it will be an issue in real life. If you're not looking
for super ideal then I think this is a nice stone. Is the price decent?

Based on the information and the pictures you provided, I would say that this is a decent stone, although the depth % and Crown Height are not super ideal. However, the biggest issue in my view is the light leakage under the table. I think you can probably find another stone with better light returns.
