    Glad you knew my last post was mostly for a laugh, Gerry. I'm aware from this site and others that gia is the reliable evaluation. If I were buying a modern cut online, I would go with a 3xgia whiter diamond, using only one of the recommended vendors with a good return policy. With the old cuts, I've also learned, one needs to see the stone in person. I didn't want to buy a stone, send it back, buy another if I could avoid it, so I sought some help with that. Also sought input before commiting to the stone. I still have a little time before I'm actually commited. So if anyone has a great, cheaper oec that's a no-risk deal, I'd certainly be interested. As to price, I looked at all the recommended vendors of old cuts from this site and others. This stone is a fair price in comparison. Some people go the Ebay, ect. route and save money, but I don't think I have the nerves for that. There are only a few Ebay vendors I would want to deal with, and their diamonds aren't cheap either. Thanks for your input, Gerry. I appreciate you experts who are here to help.

    It is really an amazing stone. Never seen anything like it. So much fire, flash, and sparkle. Actually, I think the EGL rating is accurate in this case. Very clean, even with a loupe, and not too much color in person. Looking at a color chart, K looks accurate. I think if I were a better photographer, you could see the great faceting, a great cut so far as my knowledge takes me. No doubt there are better deals for those who aren't afraid of dealing with unknown vendors. I just don't have the nerves for that. Compared to available stones with reliable vendors, this seems to be a fair price. Not a steal by any means, but fair. That said, I'm no expert. That's why I'm here. If anyone has seen some good deals out there, I'd sure be interested. I have a little time before making a final decision.

    Oec Cert

    D, you are right. I just have to get over the fact that with old cuts there is the risk of having to do a return.

However, they weren't very helpful anyway. In one the center looked dark, and in the other it wasn't face on and couldn't see the pattern. Vendor says it is a good oec.

    Sorry to be so computer challenged. I can't seem to copy and paste a youtube video of the diamond. Would love to get input. Any suggestions? Thanks. I am going to try to save to my computer and then attach.

    Good question. No cert but a trustworthy vendor. You will probably recognize the vendor when and if I can figure out how to post the video.
