Also you are paying premium price for D. Are you only looking at D? I say you can go down to F and save.

Yeah, that's what I've noticed too :\
Could it be possible that it's just the camera angle?

I've contacted them to get it sent in for viewing in person, but it's a $150 deposit (they said it's refundable) and will take 2-3 weeks to come in.

I'm happy to go down to G, but this has had the best cut / proportion out of what I've seen around that size / clarity / price etc.

Maybe ... but I have a feeling it’s likely will look disorganize like that IRL.

look at this one.


Ideal proportions to target:
  • 54-57 table
  • 60-62.4 depth (prefer < 62)
  • 34-35 crown (maybe 35.5, if paired with a 40.6 pavilion)
  • 40.6-40.9 pavilion (maybe 41, if paired with a 34 crown)
  • 75-80 LGF's
  • Inverse relationship between the crown/pavilion
  • HCA score of 0-2, maybe 2.5-3 if very precisely cut

AU$5000 for setting and stone.
Setting looks to be about $1800, so ~$3200 for the stone.

I've managed to get ASET and H&A images of this one.
I'm concerned about the light leakage though.

I think I'm leaning more towards the 1.03 F VVS2 that I posted last, but I am yet to receive an ASET image of it. I did get a H&A image of it though.

Let me know if you have any thoughts.

The top one looks like a mess (either the people taking pics have no clue what they're doing or the arrows are just really that odd looking IRL). Either way I wouldn't buy it.
Do you have links to videos of the 2nd option?

So these people can't get an ASET image of the second stone.
And they are extremely reluctant to get it into the store.
Apparently even just getting the first stone it was a huge hassle for them, even though they wanted a holding deposit for the privilege (Though they did say it was refundable).

They've said I can come in and view the first stone in store again, but they have to send it back on Monday. I don't think the arrows are as bad as the image makes them out to be. They took the photo with a cell phone and the culet isn't centered properly.
Otherwise they're haven't confirmed if they're able to get the second stone in to view first, I'd probably have to agree to purchase it.

Any advice?

My advice- find someone else to work with. If you aren’t happy with how you’re being treated before they have your money, I don’t think things will improve after.
if you are particular about details, this does not seem like the right vendor for you.
