Let me guess - you got them for a steal right? The only problem is they are clarity enhanced?

Ditto.

Also if they are clarity enhanced or treated this will greatly affect the value as Honey mentions.

Nopers, I didn''t read all the guides and helpful posts (Lorelei your the best!) to be duped by something so silly.

Actually these are the specs of two diamonds I was looking at when I went to Tiffany. Notice the HCA score, considering what they were charging for these bad boys I am glad I found this forum!

* blush* you are too kind, thank you!!


The first is hovering around steep/ deep territory which accounts for the HCA score, the second has a steeper pav angle which gives it the >2 in this case. Both well cut but you will pay a premium as you know - it is interesting to see actual Tiffany specs!
