I plan to buy a round brillant just under 1.00. Eye/mind clean VS2/SI1. F - H. I have learned that cut is the most important factor for most.
Wondering about this diamond? Again, thanks for any input. I''m always impressed with the time and effort so many give to this forum to help newbies like me.

Welcome!

The diamond looks promising by the numbers, I can't see anything ' wrong' with it at all, if it is from an online vendor can you get an ASET or Idealscope image for it please? Also make sure it fits your expectations concerning ' eyecleanliness' by asking the vendor, for example if you don't want to see any visible inclusions from any angle at close scrutiny, make sure you tell the vendor that so you are both on the same page.

And thank you for your very kind words, the veteran PSers work very hard to be of help to those who are new to diamond buying, so the positive feedback is much appreciated, thank you!

Ditto on looking great so far, but an Idealscope would be helpful if possible.
