It''s a tad deep, and it will face up a little smaller than it''s carat weight. Also, pictures really really help with radiants if you could get the vendor to provide one.

I have a "squarish" radiant. Like Kcoursolle, I think this stone seems a bit deep. I would look for stones in the 60-65% depth range to get the largest appearing stone.

I would want the vendor to be holding it describing it to me. I would also want a good return policy. What kind of inclusions are these and where are they? A picture would be nice. Good luck!

Can you double check the link? It doesn''t seem to be working.

Rb- depth% by itself doesn''t mean much on a radiant. As paul has often pointed out for princesses, a 73% depth can actually spread bigger than a 65% depth (though the odds are against it).

In this case, however, coda is right. To look its size, A 1.5 carat radiant should be at least 6.5 x 6.5 (ideal would be 6.7 x 6.7). A small looking radiant can still be quite lively (depending on where the extra weight is), but you would need to see it in person to judge.
