OK, I''ve been doing a ton of research. Diamond Wholesale just called me back and spoke about a few diamonds I''d selected. The woman said that an EGL G might be more like an H or an I. Anything else we might need to know??? What do those of you in the know have to share w/ those of us who keep finding out more things to look out for everyday??

Old Miner (Dave Atlas) has a chart showing what numbers to look for to find a well cut OEC. You can use it to check out the stones you're considering. He might be on vacation, though. (Lots of jewelers are.)

Good luck! I love OECs.

No. EGL isn't safe for every shape. Some stones are graded correctly, but many others are overgraded. Especially those graded by EGL Israel and Antwerp.
