Hey everyone,

Im about to make my purchase for my soon to be fiance! I need a ballpark estimate on what to pay for this stone:

GIA CERT

Modified Square Brilliant (Princess)
5.76 x 5.67 x 3.60mm
1.01 carat

Depth: 63.5%
Table: 77%

Girdle: Thin to thick
Culet:None
Polish: Good
Symmetry: Good
VS2
Coloe:E
Fluorescence:None


Rapaport says about $4700, whats a fair price?

Thanks to all in advance, you truly have some really knowledgable people here.

Diamonds in the trade are sold for up to 50% below Rapaport price list.

I just ran a seach from Pricescope.com front page. You can find 1.01-E-VS2-GIA for $3,800 and up.

Thanks a bunch, i did a search on pricescope and found the same prices you were mentioning. I guess $4 - $5k depending on all the factors is pretty decent.

It could be especially if you're buying from a local B&M store.
