I am looking to create an engagement ring. I am after something which has a lot of fire and brilliance. Unfortunately i do not have the ASET nor Ideal Scope images for this. Given the specifications below what are your thoughts on this diamond? I know the clarity being IF may be overkill but i'm interested in getting something special for the missus.
 
Thank you in advance.

That's a D/IF/xxx/GIA.  Many would call that the best of the best.  That's surely why you picked it.  There's no clues here about if you have minor symmetry issues that would turn up with an ASET but I think it's near certain that it's lovely.  Cutters don't want to screw around with stones like this.

It was listed on Blue Nile for £4242 and then it went up to £4284.

 

I requested for the ASET and Idealscope images and BN have informed me it takes 24-48 hours for me to receive them.

 

24 hours has passed and i have not heard from BN and this diamond has now been bought by somebody.

 

Damn it.

That's not a problem with the diamond, that's a problem with the seller.

 

FWIW, I didn't think they were prepared to provide reflector images even if you waited.  That's not really their business model.

If the diamond is out-of-country, the websites routinely automatically adjust the price based on the foreign exchange rates of the day.  That's almost certainly why the price change.  It can just as easily go the other way.

Guess what they were still able to send me an image as i had requested very early on when it was available.

 

What'd you think?

Well, I don't see a thing in it.  Given it's an IF, I'm not surprised.  There's not much else to be learned from this pic.

Yes, we can see. However, most bots aren't, so don't feel alone.
