Looks good. Have you seen the stone in person? If from an online vendor, any chance of getting an Idealscope image for the stone?

The table is a little large for my personal taste, but on the flip side if you like bright white light return (versus fire) and if you want a great spread this stone has it.

Thanks for the input. So if I understand correctly, fire is the speckles of color that bounce around inside the diamond and ice is the overall white brightness of the stone? How does this stone stack up actual size-wise to other .7-.75 carat stones?

Bright light is white light coming off the stone and fire is colored light coming off the stone. Both are sparkles, just different kinds. This stone faces up slightly large for it''s size, but the trade off is that it will lack colored light return (personally my favorite kind of sparkle).

Thanks. Is the table abnormally large or just or the larger side? I do like white light a bit more but it the stone will severely lack fire, I might shop around.

to consider a combination, the table, crown angle, and pavilion angle are required.

Could be a nice diamond, can you request an Idealscope image for it from the vendor?

One thing to consider is that GIA doesn’t give an Ideal cut grade. Seeing as how this diamond has very good polish it would be impossible for it to be Ideal at AGS. While very good polish isn’t different to human eyes than excellent polish that detail is still something AGS takes seriously. So whoever named this Ideal has different criteria than AGS.
