Hi all! First time poster here. I just wanted to thank everyone for all the informative suggestions I''ve been reading about. I actually almost fell for Fred Ceullar and his bonded diamonds until I read all the pitfalls about it here. Glad I stumbled upon this site. But I think I''ve finally found my stone with a PS vendor. I''ve already plugged the #''s into the Gemappraiser tool and it comes back as a 1A in every category. HCA comes back .8. The only knock on it is the spread which comes in as very good. I haven''t found a good explanation on here of what that really is though. Also, if someone can plug the #''s in their Gem calculator for me, I''ld really appreciate it.

Table % 57
Total depth % 61.4
crown height %15
crown angle 34.5
pavilion angle 40.6
pavilion % 43
girdle is med-slightly thick

It''s a VS1 F color with med flourescence. Price is $9600. Is this reasonable? From everything I''ve been looking at, sounds like a pretty good deal. Thanks in advance everybody.

Sorry, in my excitement, I forgot one of the most important things. It''s a 1.32.

Fluor and vg polish bring the price down. Sounds good, get some professional advice.

An IS image would help to make sure, but the numbers look fine. If you wanted to save money or go larger, you can easily go down in clarity without any visual difference and some in color too if you wanted.
