Welcome!

Have you seen these diamonds in person, or do you have any images or photos please?

No problem.


Dittio Lorelei on info. Fancies are tough, and pics, especially ASET are best in evaluating. Are these online?

Hi, Thank you,
no I have neither seen it in person or have any pictures, it is off Diamond Exchange''s website.
I know other websites have much more in respect to pictues but I was hoping the dimensions would be enough.
hopefully!

Not really at all, unfortunately. Are you open to looking somewhere that provides more info?

Sorry, at best all we can get is a chalk outline of the diamond by the measurements, images are crucial. Have you asked this vendor if they can provide images such as ASET and photos? I am not very familiar with this vendor, but it is worth asking.

I did ask, and the lady I spoke to said they are unable to email me any photos as their lab was not set up to take those types of pictures. The best she could do was to email me the grading report.
She did assure me that VS1 clarity is very good and that it was "eye clean"

That is nice to know, but it tells you nothing about the cut quality, or if the diamond is pretty at all. CUT is what makes a diamond razzle and dazzle you. Not clarity or color.

hmm...good to know. so apart from pictures is there anyway to find out about the diamond''s cut?

another side question...what is Fluoresence? and does it effect the quality or "spakle? is it visible to the naked eye?

Not really, as I said before with proportions at best what we have is a chalk outline and the most we can say with some is that it might look promising and worth further evaluation, so it comes back to images again!

What you could do is to look at some AGS0 cut grade Princess as these should be of good cut quality, but still images are needed.

Fluorescence - you can read up on it here, it doesn't affect cut quality, it can be visible to the naked eye if it is medium sometimes or strong usually. Rarely it can have a negative effect by making a diamond look cloudy in some lights if the fluoro is strong, but this is unusual and no reason to fear fluorescence even if strong - a trusted vendor will advise you if the diamond does look cloudy in certain lighting, but it is rare as said previously.

Not really.

Here''s a great Princess. The video he has up does not have this particular stone in it, he must have mistakenly put it up. However, it does have a great cut Princess and a "typical" cut Princess. The difference is noticeable. See what you think.

The stone Ellen suggested looks fantastic!

If you post your budget and desired size/color/clarity (looks like you want around 0.75 for size), we could help you find the best bang for the buck.
