Looks promising from the numbers. Is VG the GIA cut grade on the report?

Although it scores well on the HCA, I, personally, wouldn''t be happy with "Good" polish. My previous stone had "Good" polish and didn''t sparkle as much if it had even the slightest bit of dirt on it. My current stone''s polish is "Ideal" and it sparkles like crazy even when it is filthy!

That is probably more a result of excellent cut proportions of your lovely diamond that you notice the increased sparkle rather than polish! Your diamond is INCREDIBLE!!!

Have also got my eye on a GIA 1ct EX cut with very strong blue fluorescence. Alot more money, but maybe that something special I am looking for with the added characteristic of the fluorescence. Am having it checked for oily/cloudy appearance.
