    Thank you for the feedback. Not really sure what i like at the moment as i am new to emeralds. I may need to look at a few more stones and see what catches my eye. Appreciate the help and knowledge

    Emerald proportions

    Hello again, Firstly, thank you again for everyones feedback and I realise now with emeralds there is no cut that defines a beautiful stones...beauty is in the eye if the beholder. I have found a stone that looks great and would like to order it but not too sure how to read the asset and hope to avoid the hassle with returning if it is dull . Also, would medium blue fluorescence be an issue with D colour ? Thanks NP

    Hence why this stone is offered at a good price. Thanks for all the feedback. I Will say no to his stone if the faint brown is evident

    Just find it strange that a supplier would "lower" the stones colour when GIA have graded it and F. Unless of course its an error.

    Never seen FBR on a F graded stone but you may be right. ill confirm with the supplier if its an error Thanks

    Any ideas why FBR (im guessing faint brown) would be added to this stones description by the supplier if it has been graded F colour by GIA ? http://info.stonehdfile.com/Online/Transaction/StonePktDtl.aspx?pktcode=618507710&CertiType=104 Thanks

    I am starting to have a little more faith in my own visual judgement and not focus too much on the numbers.

    Just been reading on internet sites about depth and table lengths and these seem to be the preferred. I agree visual is the ideal Thanks again

    Emerald proportions

    Hello all, Have been looking for an emerald cut, F colour, VS1, 1.40 - 1.50ct stone with 1.4 - 1.5 ratio... The ideal proportions seem to be the table length at 61 - 69 and stone depth at 61 - 67. The GIA report also states the girdle thickness, symmetry and polish. Wondering if there is any other criteria with the emerald cut such as, angles or pavilions to help narrow my search ? Thanks, NP
  12. Thanks for the details...very interesting
  13. I have recently started buying loose certified stones but came across ths article outlining the benefits of standardizing diamond grading through artificial intelligence...Is this a real possibility ? Are we heading for a single "trusted" grading report doing away with potential human inconsistencies? https://sarine.com/diamond-grading/artificial-intelligence-diamonds/
  14. Thanks again...always helpful
  15. Sorry I do have another question as your comment got me thinking. Why are there i1 that are completely eye clean and then si1 that have visible inclusions and both graded by GIA? Im sure there are strict guidelines that the GIA "grader" follows but can they also have a bad day and be inconsistent?
