    :confused:

    Can you tell me if I have made a good purchase?

    1.79 Princess Cut
    Color: G
    Clarity: SI2
    Depth: 4.89
    Depth %: 77
    mearsurements: 6.61x6.30x4.89
    Ratio: 1.049

    Is this stone to deep. Am I paying for a stone that appears to be a 1.5?

    Hi Bonnie,

    77% depth is a bit deep but not uncommon for princess. Yes you can find shallower 1.5crt stone that will have similar spread as your 1.79 one.

    However, you also should consider other proportions and how the diamond looks (brilliance, scintillation, etc). Price is also an important factor :) There should be a difference in price per carat for the stone below and above 1.5 carat mark.

    Besides total depth, spread (diameter) also depends on relationship between table, crown, pavilion and girdle. E.g. you can have different spread for the same carat weight and total depth if crown is too thick or to shallow or girdle is thick or thin.

    ):

    Measurements: 6.81 x 6.81 x 4.94 mm
    Table: 65%
    Total Depth: 72.5%
    Crown Angle: 33 degrees
    Crown Height: 10.9%
    Pavilion Angle: 40 degrees
    Pavilion Depth: 59.3%
    Girdle: Medium
    Culet: Pointed [/u][/u]

    Thank you for your response. I am going to be paying $7,000.00 for this stone. Is the diamond calcualtor something that anyone could use or is it a program that has to be purhcased?

    Again thanks for your help...

    for more info. It costs $140 for the last week. Next version will cost more - it'll allow to evaluate diamond performance (light return, leakage, contrast, etc) and import Sarin measurements for the real stones.[/u]

    So in your estimation based on the diamond calculator should the stone I have a deposit on be graded differently? Or should I say is it way overpriced? I have done so much research my head hurts. I feel like no matter how much research I have done I didn't do enough.

    Thanks for your response

    first of all, what's the table %? have you seen it with your own eyes? it is a sparkler?
    it's not that the diamond shouldn't be graded differently, it is what it is.
    i'd say pass on the stone only because why spend $7K on a stone that looks smaller than it is?

    how about this one from usacerteddiamonds:
    1.78 G SI2 75% 76% GIA med-sl gd vg no 6.76x6.61x4.96 $7075
    also a 2B cut grade base on table and depth (like the one you listed), and a lot more diamond for your eyes to see!

    I have seen the stone. It is very beautiful. I am wating for the certification from GIA. When I get that, I will be determing if it is worth it or not.

    Thanks for the reply. I will keep that diamond in mind if this one does not work out.
