I have recently come across a very pretty stone at a reputable B&M store in my area. Here are the stats:

Round Brilliant
1.43 G SI2
$8400
"Ideal Hearts and Arrows"

Dimensions: 7.18-7.22 (.7%)
Depth: 62.2
Table: 57.2
Crown: 34.7
Pavillion: 41.0
Culet: .2
Girdle: .9-3.2 (2.5%)

First, any opinions on this stone? I realize it is somewhat more expensive than stones online, but I really would like to have a relationship with a local jeweler. Does it fall into the same ballpark as online pricing?

Secondly, the GIA cert. comments on twining wisps. Are they a serious flaw? Do they impact the light performance/color grading, etc? I was very suprised when I saw this stone under the microscope. It was incredibly clean for a SI2. Since it was so clean (there is nothing else plotted on the cert except the wisps), I am somewhat concerned that the wisps make it a less desirable diamond.

Thanks so much.
Jason

I have seen SI2 diamonds with few obvious inclusions that have clouds or wisps that can very slightly dull the stone. This is rare.
You can do your own search for price comparisons on the Search by Cut quality on the top left of the front page.

the cut should be very nice.
