Trying to snag an engagement ring before the sale ends tonight and not much time left. How does this look?
Thanks for the reply. At first I was looking at diamonds in the 1 carat range, but then moved down to .9 because of the massive price range. So I guess you’re saying that the .9 is still a diamond you would recommend, but the 1.02 is better. I think I’ll stick with it and bring it to an independent appraiser. I’ll have 30 days to return the ring if I don’t like itAgree with @tyty333, the 1.02 is aesthetically more pleasing to my eyes. Smaller table, fatter arrows and more contrast with nice faceting in the video. To me, it appears the IS image of this stone is overly backlight and not as leaky as it appears.
The IS image of the 0.90 is fairly solid. It does appear there is a little leakage around the 10 o'clock position but it looks minor to me.
What is her feeling between the specs on the 2nd one versus this one? What does she say about the MF? What about the black spec you can see on the magnified first one vs the other being VVS2? What does she say about the differences in pavilion and crown angles between the 2 stones?I spoke to one of JA’s gemologists and she said that the original .9 is nowhere close to “brown” and the cloud is very insignificant
You definitely sound more confident about this diamond choice -- and you were able to snag the sale price on a setting you're also certain she will love. So WOOHOO and kudos to you; I'm sure your wife-to-be will be greatly touched by your care and attentiveness the ring reflects!She said that MF wouldn’t be noticeable unless under UV light. She said that she likes the angles and light performance of the one with MF. She even told me how beautiful she thought it was. I took a chance and changed my order. Thanks for all of your help, it’s very much appreciated
