First off I just wanted to say thanks to all the posters out there who help out around here. All the knowledge I have gained by reading through various threads has really helped me in my search.

I was hoping to get people's thoughts on a particular diamond I am considering purchasing soon. I just put it on hold, so no worries about that. Here is all the info:

http://www.whiteflash.com/loose-diamonds/round-cut-loose-diamond-2324699.htm

It is a .96 carat, eye clean, VS2, H color AGS 000 with an HCA score of 1.7.

photo of the cert:

The only thing that has me a bit worried about this stone are the inclusions, mainly the cavity. Could some pros around here take a look at the cert and the whiteflash page and let me know what they think?

I am not a pro, but...

I can't see any cavity, even on the grading report.

With the close up pick, I still can't see any inclusions at all.

The inclusions at VS2 wouldn't worry me.

I've considered that stone awhile ago since it's just right under the 1ct price jump and price is good too. there maybe some leakage of the light in the middle but for the price you are getting a great stone =)

What made you decide not to get it minmin?
I think minmin opted for a D color just over a carat for a good price instead of this stone :))

Your selection looks great and you do not need to worry about inclusions in a VS2, especially one from WF backed by their lifetime policies.

Stones of this size are incredible value. It is a nice find!

Ok yeah I thought it would be ok since it is a VS2 as well. I definitely like the pricing on the a bit lower than 1 carat stones!
