Hi, looking for some comments on the proportions of this small diamond, .60ct. I know it doesn't meet all PS recommendations, so I'm wondering what the drawbacks might be. Thanking you all in advance for your assistance.

smaller face up size but could be awesome.
Would need images preferably reflector images(is/Aset)

Thank you @Karl_K. No Aset or IS available but here is the JA link. I am looking for a stone with this diameter to pair with something else and I do want the faint brown tint as opposed to yellow. My concern was some of the angles.


Here is the cert and I know it says cloud as the grade setting inclusion but I didn't think that would be too big of a deal for a vvs2.

vvs2 cloud is not an issue.
The stones looks kewl to me in the video.
Technicaly longer lowers(smaller arrows) might be better but I think it rocks as it is.

I personally like the color, and the fat arrows are unique and interesting. Obviously it'll face up a bit smaller than stones of a similar ct weight that are less deep, but I think if you have a specific project in mind and need a specific mm diameter AND are looking for a brown stone (vs yellow) it's a nice choice

I love it...I can only comment on aesthetics...My favorite undertone is brown as opposed to yellow. Gorgeous diamond.

I chose a diamond with similar dimensions bc it reminds me more of antique diamonds to have the high crown and smaller table, and I love the dispersion you get. I bet it will be beautiful in person, and if not, JA has a great return policy. Good luck with it!

Thank you, yes, I was looking for something that looked a bit more like an older cut. I first looked for OECs but didn't find one with the right width dimensions within the budget I had given myself. I saw this stone and thought it would work as I'm pairing it with a light brown Ascher (not antique) in something like this. Not sure yet if I will use yellow or rose gold for the setting. When I get the new stone and see it with the Ascher I think it will be easier to decide on that.

It is a pretty stone and it being an L color, it could be a good deal. And I actually like the color quite a bit (even though I don't always like warm colors). It would also look beautiful in a rose gold.

Lookinagain, I'm so excited by your plans. What color is the Asscher?
I have an Asscher already and a radiant coming, around the same size as your stones. If you get a chance, please post a photo of the two loose diamonds and what your thoughts are for them.
Again, I love the L you're buying. Just a beautiful tint.

That is so beautiful! Definitely brown but not dark at all and with a slight rosiness. The color is TDF! Can't wait to see what you do.
