    Opinion Needed 1.5

    nothing wrong with a simple: (below) that's cool too! 57/34.5 15 40.6/61.5 none thin to medium 50/80

    Opinion Needed 1.5

    FWIW: Out of the two I would go with the first one. The 59% over 60.1% - Will be bright (I love brightness) only second to transparency. (ice cold water)! Davide’s analogy!! Nice one Davide… The 60.1% TD will allow for a nice spread without sacrificing any optics/performance. FWIW2: It’s also very close to a 60/60 (one of my fav’s) in regards to T&D – IMHO *The angles work well here!

    Comparing Two Oval Diamonds Just Over 1 Carat

    I would also add: decide who to trust, because opinions are more like eyes than noses (everybody's got at least two). Unless your a cyclops
  9. Furthermore I would suspect that most if not all; highly skilled, well trained gemologists cannot tell the difference between VVS1 and VVS2 definitively using a 10x loupe only. Conservatively the best grade I ever give large diamonds 1+ carater and more without a microscope is VS1. Pushing it further is just soft…IMO FWIW: Unless it’s made by an important marker like VCA, Cartier, Tiffany, Webb, Buccellati, Heyman, etc…and the stones are “diamond melee†I can go VS/ VVS –which is standard catalog/descriptor practice. Regards R.K.
  10. You, as a normal person wearing jewelry will never be able to distinguish the difference between FL and IF when the stone is set on your finger. ....and either would I or anybody else on here.
  11. It looks like the prelim GIA report was added by accident. Sorry for all the back and forth.
  12. South Florida Maven on eBay is pretty big. There pics are always pretty bad....
  13. On the prelim: I counted 17 issues. On the actual GIA/VS1 plot 3. Composed of 2 chips 1 extra facet. WOW P.S. Def a mistake to list the prelim doc on eBay.
  14. FWIW: The GIA Small document: So this is a diamond cutters or diamond dealers, prelim report that shows everything internally regardless if it affects the clarity grade or not? Does this come with all certs, or do you have to request one? Just curious: Never got two reports from GIA; (Prelim & Actual) Is this a new feature?
