I've fallen in love with this imperfect heart diamond. I kind of impulsively bought it with the thought that if I don't love it when I get it I can always return it.

I wasn't expecting to buy anything more because I've been a bit self-indulgent with my jewellery purchases lately.

There is something about it that is very appealing to me. I love the brown undertone. But I am worried that symmetry and polish are only good and very good, respectively.

I should mention this was a great price - $1200 Canadian. I am just wanting a fun, occasional right hand ring.

Any thoughts would be appreciated. https://www.jamesallen.com/loose-diamonds/heart-shaped/0.70-carat-j-color-vs1-clarity-sku-8654386

I know fancy shapes are hard to judge, but what makes you call it imperfect?
I think it’s a very sweet heart, at VS1 should be eye clean, J will have a little tint but I can just imagine this as the sweetest pendant!
For the price, I think you did really well!

Mostly I think of it as imperfect because of the symmetry. Although my eye doesn't notice it.

Thanks, I'm really drawn to it, unlike a lot of other hearts I've looked at. I really appreciate your comment!

I think it’s gorgeous! I have two small hearts and neither of them are EX/EX on symmetry and polish. My pendant is EX polish and Very Good symmetry and my little bezel ring is just Good Polish/Symmetry. They both sparkle a lot and I love them ❤️

The facets on yours look crisp and wink off and on as I spin it on the 360 video. That body color is one of my favorites, too!

I hope you love it and post “real life” photos when it arrives!

I love it. I wouldnt worry about the polish and symmetry. In fancy shapes it's all about whether you love it (obviously there are some things to avoid like huge bowties in ovals), but largely you need to judge with your own eyes. I think the price was great and it looks beautiful

Thanks everyone. I don’t trust my eye yet and couldn't say why I liked this one, I just knew I did. I feel a lot more confident in my choice now!

I've been wanting a little heart diamond for a bit so I'm really excited I stumbled upon this one.

@klrrrr I only know I want it in rose gold. I haven't decided on what I want beyond that. My thought is I might sit on setting this one for awhile as I mull it over a bit. I'm definitely open to any suggestions!

I love the proportions - hard to tell any asymmetry from the photos. Great find - can't wait to see it set!

Just to update, it arrived today and I really like it. It definitely has brown tint but it is so warm and lovely, I think it is better for it.
It is a decent size, too.
Definitely a keeper!

Lovely heart! I have just recently warmed up to heart shaped diamonds.

I bought one also, a 0.6 ct GIA H SI2. I love mine and it was such a bargain at 550 USD. It arrived today after a long wait. The grade setting inclusion is a single black crystal, but I can hardly see it although I have perfect eye sight. If I really look for it, I can see it at 5 o’clock
position at the edge of the table, but then I think of it as a beauty spot (think Marilyn) :)

I plan to make a pendant out of it and I’m thinking whether to halo it or not. And if so, should I use pink melee and whether to bezel it or not.

Oh, I love yours! What a fantastic shape it has! It will make a beautiful pendant! Yours looks very white - what colour is it?
I think hearts look great with halos, my vote is for a pink halo.
