Hi all,

I'm never bought jewellery before, so I've tried to do my research on diamonds before buying an engagement ring. It's much more complex than I would have imagined before I started. I'm just about to pull the pin and buy this stone, but I wanted to check in to see if I'm making a dumb move before I do it!

Ok, the stone specs:
- It's a 0.73 carat Round Brilliant with a recent GIA certificate
- F in Color
- SI1 in Clarity
- 59.4% depth
- 59% table
- Cut grade: Excellent
- Girdle: TN-MD
- Culet: None
- Polish: VG
- Symmetry: EX
- Fluorescence: None
- Crown Angle: 34 degrees
- Pavillion Angle: 40.6 degrees

I'm going to put it into a white gold solitaire setting with a 2.5mm wide band. The size of the ring will be 7.5.

I've run it through pricescope's Holloway Cut Adviser, and it scored Excellent across all categories, with a 0.9 overall score.

The cost for just the stone is US$3475. What do people think - a fair price?

Thanks!

Bryce.

Looks like a good stone at a great price. Who is the vendor?

Can you return it if you don't care for it in person? I would repost this on Rocky Talky. You will get far more replies and input on there.

personally I think the table is a little too big for my liking.
