    Just purchased a round 1.66, F color, SI1, ideal cut stone for $13,000. The antique setting was another $1,000 on top of that.I am 26 years old and now have no money. Is this a fair price for this stone? The stone is beautiful with very minimal flaws.

    Hey Bobi, assuming that ideal means AGS-ideal it is not bad at all!Give us more info:
    - Lab (grading report)
    - Cut proportions (table, crown, pavilion)
    - polish, symmetry, fluorescence

    I looked at all the information when I was at the store, and I am trying to remember all the stats. I don't have the ring or the papers yet because they are putting it together.I know that it is GIA certified, the proportions were in the 57% range I think. I remember the proportions were just about perfect. I remember seeing on the paper that there was minimal fluorescence, and don't remember the polish or symetry.The diamond was absolutely beautiful, and I went through alot before I picked this one. You could tell at first glance that this one sparkled.What does AGS stand for? I know that it is an ideal cut, but don't remember him saying AGS.Thanks for your help!

    GIA report is already a plus - you can be more certain in color and clarity. Minor fluorescence shouldn't be a problem.If you've seen many stones and this one looks most beautiful, that is great sign too.AGS stands for American Gem Society. They use their system to grade the cut. Usually stone with AGS ideal report costs about 10% more but report doesn't make it more beautiful [​IMG]However one should check all the proportions, polish and symmetry to compare prices on the similar stones.Since GIA doesn't show crown and pavilion angles it is good to ask for a Sarin report.See http://www.goodoldgold.com and http://www.niceice.com for more info about cut.If you want to get really deep into the cut stuff check http://www.diamond-cut.com.au and http://www.gemology.ru Keep us updated!
