    Can't choose between 2 Stones

    Davidelevi, In your example of prisms and mirrors, brightness vs fire, is that directly related to the depth of the stone? Or is is not that simple? You said when comparing the 2 stones, the VG would show more fire. It is cut considerably deeper that the EX. Thanks, Bill

    Should I buy this 2.01 ct. GIA/IF/I round brilliant

    Very interesting. So perhaps if a video of this stone with different lighting, setup and technique would produce a completely different perception? For personal knowledge, I'd be eager to see that. All the more reason to have a trusted and knowledgeable jeweler at hand to decipher all this. Thanks for your explanation. Bill

    Curious here Davide, You said lifeless. On paper, it seems the numbers aren't so bad on this stone. If the lifelessness is not from the video technique, then what do you think it's from? Can you tell us what you think the issue is here? Is it because the crown angle is 36? Your explanation will certainly help in researching future stones. I see it does take a hit on the AGS Guidelines chart. Thanks, Bill

    I was wondering why this thread didn't seem to flow smoothly.

    I read his reply only because it showed up as a "new" post. After having done so, I found it was a waste of time.

    Amazing Site...but Do You Cover The Uk?

    I can think of one. Sorry Neil, I should have refined my comment a little better. In no way did I mean to exclude you.

    Amazing Site...but Do You Cover The Uk?

    As a 3rd person observer, I'd seriously consider David. Following his posts for any length of time, he seems to go over and about what any else would consider a normal conversation with a stranger over the internet. You've probably received more information from him in these few posts than you would (if ever) in 10 visits to most other jewelers. What other person in the industry would go to the effort to volunteer this much information without trying to sell you something? If he's willing to do that - here, think what an experience it would be to conduct a transaction with him. I've never met the man nor done business with him, but when I'm ready he'll be at the top of my "go to" list. Just my observation. Bill Baker
