Good afternoon,

I''ve been shopping for awhile for a stone for an engagement ring and have been offered the following in NYC. After surfing through the posts on these boards I''d appreciate any thoughts/reactions before I make a decision. As a point of reference, I have been looking for emerald cuts near 1.5 carats in the F-H, VS1-VS2 range that lean towards square.

The details:

Asscher cut
GIA Certified
1.61 carats
F, VS2
Depth 62%
Table 64%
Girdle medium to slight
Cutlet none
Flourescence medium blue
Symmetry good
Polish good

Asking price is $9,600.

This is a bit more than I am looking to spend but she is worth it. Since it is a more unique cut I would appreciate thoughts on the diamond at this price.

Thanks in advance!

Anyone out there willing to weigh in? The stone is beautiful in person but as most new purchasers I am feeling a bit of information overload and in need of a gut check. The fact that it is not a standard emerald cut also makes me wary.

Help from the experts here would be great! Thanks.

I will be getting a Sarin report this afternoon. Are there particular warning signs that I should be looking for?
