Hi! I am going to buy a diamond in a few hours! I need you to help me with the size... i do not know if it will be profitable to pay 500 usd more for a 0.85 instead of a 0.79... I mean if it will mark a difference to the "naked eye"...

the measurements are

carat 0.85... 5.09*5.02*3.71...table 72%...depth 73.9%

carat 0.79... 5.16*5.03*3.68... table 70%... depth 73.2%

besides the measurements the only difference is that the 0.85 is VVS2 and the 0.79 is VS1

Thanks!

What shape is it?

I hope it is not a round with 74% depth.


BTW, the 0.85 ct has a SMALLER width than the 0.79 ct one.

According to your post the .79 actually faces up larger.. Is that correct?

I don''t know what ideal princess measurements are, but the .79 has a larger diameter than the .85. Plus, VS1 is REALLY clean...no need to pay for VVS. So I see nothing that would compell me to buy the .85 if the cuts are equal. Have you seen the stones or pictures of them? I wouldn''t buy a princess cut without seeing a picture.

It is probably just on hold.

Hard to say... if JA was requested for more info (ie: images or a closer examination), they would put a hold on the stone so nobody else could buy it whilst these examinations were taking place.

(ETA: Lorelei types faster. LOL)

Here''s my 2 cts. I wouldn''t fork out extra $500 for an extra 0.06 carat cuz in this case visually it wouldn''t matter at all. You''re better off spending that extra 500 on the setting.
