The price is tempting but the diamond is too deep = poor cut.

Well cut 0.60 carat stone will look better and as big as this one.

Leonid,
Depth is 64%, which seems a little deep, but crown and pavilion numbers put this diamond into premium cut category according to PGS.
!?!?

With a 64% depth, and a 44.5% pavilion, I'm surprised at the "premium cut" designation. A "fine" cut maybe, but not "premium".

After looking at Garry's (excellent) info, you might consider perusing the AGA cut grading system at http://www.gemappraisers.com/chrt1.htm. for additional cut grading info.
