    Need help with this diamond please!

    Thanks so much for your reply! This link has a better video available for the same GIA# stone. https://www.jamesallen.com/loose-diamonds/round-cut/2.88-carat-i-color-vs2-clarity-excellent-cut-sku-5580984

    Need help with this diamond please!

    Thank you both so much for your replies! I'll go with GIA certified diamonds. 1. May I ask what do you think about the cut? Still waiting on response from a vendor. (I found a couple of vendors are selling the same exact GIA# stone, for different prices. Highest is $26k.) 2. I'm looking for: a Round, 2.8 - 2.95 ct, Excellent cut, GIA certified diamond. I'm also considering diamonds in the J color and SI1 clarity category. Will this be a good area to look? I plan to set it with a halo setting. Would like to hear your thoughts! Thank again!

    Need help with this diamond please!

    Hello all, New to this forum and I learned so much helpful info here! Could I please have your input on this stone? Is it a good buy? This fits right in my budget. https://www.fourmine.com/shop/diamond/180196-89?utm_source=rarecarat&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=2017 1. This stone has strong blue fluorescence, I don't mind it, but I'm just worried about haziness and milky/oily appearance. Would I be able to inspect that with my naked eye under direct sunlight? (Do I need a microscope?) 2. I have a connection at a local jewelry store, and he has been given me EGL USA diamonds to choose from. I understand it's a different grading system (looser), should I ask for GIA diamonds only? Thank you!
