Thanks so much for your information. Unfortunately, GIA report doesn't have more details. Is the seller supposed to tell me all the details?Virginia

The price is not bad for a normal cut diamond. It is not going to be a super cut, but we can't really tell from your posting all the details.. There are some missing facts...------------------

Only if you'd inquire about it. Ask for Sarin report or show the diamond to an independent gemologist/appraiser before finalizing the deal.

Hi,I wouldn't buy a diamond without knowing the proportions, at least the crown angle and pavillion angle. I'm a newbie myself, but just a little research will reveal to you the importance of cut.For instance, if the pavillion angle strays too much from approximately 41 degrees, the diamond loses a lot of brilliance and light return. But don't take my word for it. Snoop around and do a little reading for yourself!
