Last night when I was browsing James Allen I came across this stone.

http://www.jamesallen.com/diamond.asp?find=1&cid=130&item=1215539

It seems absurdly cheap. Am I missing something here?

Weight: 0.46
Color: H
Clarity VS1
Table: 57 %
Depth: 60.2%
Crown: 35.5 degrees
Pavillion: 40.8 degrees
Girdle: Thin to Medium, faceted

The only detractor I can see is Very Good symmetry instead of excellent.

Did you put it on hold because like Julie says it is no longer available (sold or on hold)?

Yes, I put it on hold pending PS analysis. I figured if it really is a good deal, it wouldn''t last.

I made a mistake in my original post, the crown angle is 33.5 degrees.

Well it looks to be a well cut diamond, you could request an Idealscope image, but it looks promising.

It''s worth having JA put it under the Idealscope.

I knew it was too good to be true. I got an e-mail today stating that JA was cancelling the sale due to a pricing error. The item was supposed to be priced at $990 not $490. Oh well...

That was indeed too good to be true.

A good spot and fast action on your part, however!
