I was waiting to write up a full review as I took digital pictures of the results of each of the stones I tested as well. Wanna wait a tad for the full review or just links to the stones and their Isee2 results?

Oh! Was Gary being sarcastic? duh! I thought he was not interested for some reason and I struck a nerve or something.

I'm in the process of putting it together and am going to write an html about it. What I particularly found interesting about the unit is it's ability to analyse 3 dimensional symmetry and also something that immediately came to mind as well is it's analysis of brilliance via CONTRAST. This is a concept that goes beyond just light return and this instrument I believe is the first to correlate the contrast issues with brilliance on a digital level. Gary is right though ... I should not just post up results with explanations. I'll try and get this done asap. I tested a variety of diamonds (not mentioning brand names though in my review) that ranged from standard AGS"0" non H&A (but with super symmetry), to the finest cut diamonds on my site including those of the longer star/lower girdle combo's to those of the shorter star/lower girdle combos. The results, needless to say are QUITE INTERESTING.

As soon as I finish the web page I'll either post a link or if you'd like to put it somewhere on the forum or your website Leonid I wouldn't have a problem with that.

Peace,
Jonathan

Thought the same thing. Gary really comes across poorly when he doesn't smile

LOL ... you are too funny Gary. We've recently added one new technology and upgraded another. I spent all day trying to set em up today! Should have em ready to go tomorrow. When I'm doing setting those up I'll get the page ready on the Isee2. My sister and I who attened the presentation this past Sunday were talking alot tonight on the pros and cons and it looks like we are going to move forward with it. There's alot of new and exciting things on the horizon and in the upcoming weeks you'll see some new features on the site that I know you'll like too Gary.


Sorry to keep ya'll hangin but time is a precious commodity to the Rhino lately.


Peace,
Jonathan

New: GemPrint diamond identification.
Upgraded: Our external cut analysis is going to feature measurements on all the minors with some very new and cool reports including 3d imaging. You will get to see and play with our diamonds in a new and virtual way.

Upcoming: Isee2 technology. Digital analysis of 3 dimensional symmetry and new way to look at brilliance via contrast & light return. More to come.

Are you saying that you've added a Gemprint to your list of toys? We hope so! We love ours and it provides some interesting insight into how well the diamonds have been cut...

Garry you're in Hong Kong! Do you have one of those Ideal Scope CZs with you? If yes, can I buy one from you? I ordered an Ideal Scope recently but didn't get the CZ. I'm having a hard time matching images I see through Ideal Scope with images on your website because it's pink vs. red. If I order a CZ from Australia it'll take days to get here plus I have to pay shipping charges.

I'm not sure if you saw my post to you earlier, but I asked if you have any recommendations on where to buy diamonds in Hong Kong. I have been to several jewelers already, but...We can discuss more privately if you like.

Oh! You must be here for the jewelry conference at the Wan Chai convention center. Dang I just found out about it about 1 hour ago! I missed it! Tomorrow and Friday are the last days and I can't go because I have to work. If you have the CZ I can get it some time in the evenings. I can either pay you cash or I can give you a U.S. credit card number so that your company in Australia can charge it. Please let me know. Thanks.

Rhino, I am anxiously awaiting your analysis because when my bf got my e-ring back in September, the store where he bought it had just gotten their Isee-2 machine. The diamond he bought (and in my e-ring) scored a 9.8 out of 10 on the Isee-2. The other "ideal" diamond we looked at scored a 9.1

Considering the score of my diamond, I am hoping your analysis agrees with the Isee-2 results.
