JA said the diamond is eye clean and inclusions would be unable to see with out microscope.

The diamond could be purchased for $5,812.00

HCA is a 1.2

I don't think the link to the diamond is correct, it's an AGS graded I VVS1 and your info. says GIA-graded I VS2. :wink2:

Numbers on the stone look good. Post the IS image. For some reason the picture of the diamond doesnt look like
what I'm used to for a stone with those numbers but it could just be the picture. IS image will tell.

Not to worry though...its probably fine!

here is the scope image. looks pretty clean to me, a little something on the table south below the center of stone ( JA ) says it is completely eye clean

"Thank you for your patience while waiting for the idealscope image of diamond 1421132. We've had this diamond inspected by one of our graduate gemologists and they determined that this diamond has nice fire and brilliance which can be seen in the attached idealscope image. It's I color performs well and the diamond faces perfectly eye clean. This diamond is a fantastic option for you that I feel you'll be very pleased with its light performance."

I don't know very much about RBs and would hate to be an alarmist, but the arrows and the center look slightly off. The arrows on the right are sharp and pointy, but the arrows on the right look smaller? cut off? The grey area in the middle appears to be off-center towards the left.

Not H&A, so imperfect hearts and arrow patterns is okay - in this case I think it's more an artifact of the stone being slightly tilted during photography though. You can see how the culet looks off-center and the mains on the lower L are shorter than those on the upper R

I'd buy it :sun:

I question this statement by the gemologists (or the salesperson's characterization of what the gemologists said) because, to my understanding, the IS tells us nothing about the diamond's fire and brilliance. The IS does tell you that the stone has good light return. A visual inspection and comparing it to other diamonds is needed to make an assessment of the diamond's fire and brilliance. The stone looks good, though; it's not being sold as an H&A, so you don't need to concern yourself with minor imperfections in the arrows. JA has a great return policy, so if, for some reason, you're not happy with the stone in real life, you can return it.
