Here is the Scott Kay setting that I am putting it in. It is .74 ct of H/I diamonds.

I don't LOVE it, though it gets a .7 on the HCA. It seems like the girdle might take too much of the carat weight and the crown angle seems a hair flatter to me.

Have you or someone seen the stone? Hard to know if it's eye clean.
GIA doesn't use "ideal" for cut classification as you stated, but the report does describe it as excellent for what it's worth.
It would be a bit more assuring if symmetry were better than very good.

Thank you for your feedback Ame. I would have never even looked at that. Cedar, the "ideal" cut was cut and paste from the vendor specs. I have not seen the stone yet. I am thinking about having a gemologist at the vendor look at it, and if I like what he says then having it shipped to an appraiser here, in Dallas.

are you opposed to online purchasing? I might be easier to go with a vendor that provides photos and scopes.

Ame, this is an online vendor. I have yet to request photos. I am hoping to get them Monday and will definately post them. The vendor is a pricescope vendor.

I really like their virtual loupe feature, and it looks lovely in the photo. Make sure it's eye-clean to YOUR definition of eye clean.
