I am making my decision either today or Monday and I am looking for some reassurance. A friend of a friend is local and has a 1.12 Marquis D VS1 62.3% depth and 54% Table. This cut appears to be very good to me, and the price of 6,350 seems great. I know it's not the optimum table size, but as far as brilliance, would I and/or my hopefully future fiance notice a difference if the table was more like 58%. The lighting in the jewelers studio is terrible, she doesn't normally show there, so I couldn't tell. Most people are telling me I am being picky and getting crazy, but I just want to get my money's worth. It is a little bit smaller than I really wanted, so I don't want to sacrifice noticeable brilliance as well.

Sam71,

I'm sorry but cannot give you much of reassurance about brilliance. There is not enough information about the cut to make any speculations. If you are concerned, you got to get the stone examined by an appraiser.

I just checked the price it seems in a ballpark for GIA graded stone. Does the stone have a grading report?

A couple pinpoints on top and a feather on the bottom, hard to see even with a loop. But I went for it, I pick it up tonight. $6500 set in simple thin platinum setting. Hopefully I did alright. Close friend of a co-worker so I trust them.
