Hello again folks,

As you know I purchased a diamond online through Ritani who sent me all the computer based Sarin reports.

I took the diamond to their Partner jewellers yesterday wanting to look at it under idealscope which they told me they had.

When I got to the store, the IS did not look likr the holloway tool? They showed it to me under some kind of a cylinderical tool, first showing me the hearts patterns and then the arrow patterns.

I asked for IS for to assess light leakage but they said they did not have anything like that.

While I was looking at the arrows I could somewhatdifferences in colour as I would under the IS. I could see some leakage in the table.

But now I am confused. The tool they used could it have been showing me light patterns like the IS? If so, then I can assume thst t
he diamond infact is losing light under the table.

Specs are 6.21 x 6.24 x 3.8, SI1, H
Table 57%, depth 61%, crown/pav 33.5%/40.8%.

I need to find someone with an IS in Toronto .. I am now doubtful.

You saw a hearts and arrows viewer.

I don't know what the rules are for linking blog postings from other websites, but if you google "hearts and arrows vs idealscope" you'll find some quick info.

Oh, okay.


Thank you, that's some relief. I will read about it and find someone with an IS here in Toronto.

Apologies for the double posts mods.

Hi aliasx,

No assessment on light return can be made from the hearts and arrows viewer. Good luck!
