Opinion On This Ags 1.1Ct Diamond

7 posts in this topic

Hi, I am looking for a nice round diamond for a solitaire engagement ring. I am looking for a diamond around $5500. I found the following diamond which seems like it might be a nice one but I would like someones opinion on whether this is a good diamond for the price or if I should be able to find something better or bigger in that price range? Thanks!

"Good" is always relative to your objectives/wishes/preferences.

 

It looks like a very well cut diamond at a very competitive price (assuming it's $5,500).

 

Can you find something bigger for that money? Yes, of course. Sacrifice colour, clarity and/or cut and your job is very easy: here's a 2 carat W-X/SI2 of indifferent cut, but it's "only" $5000: https://enchanteddiamonds.com/diamonds/view/R204-2Z7856436?cid=diamondreview

 

Is that "better"? If you privilege size, absolutely.

It's a pretty nicely cut diamond. And like davide put, priced well.

 

For my own knowledge : What's proporietary light performance, especially in a modern round brilliant diamond with 57 facets?? I see diamonds cut like these all the time. Can anyone explain please?

Thanks, Davide.

 

Hard to believe actually that's patented. Not really sure what part of that is patented, if everybody got their standard 57 facet round brilliant hearts and arrows ideal cut patented we would probably see a huge amount of infringement on daily basis. Plus by patent I assume some kind of Intellectual Property that was unique, discovered or developed.

Good point, I guess what I meant to say was finding a bigger diamond of similar appearance to the eye. However it sounds like this might be a good diamond. Thank you for the help!

What's proprietary is the report format and the grading scales, not the diamond itself.  The numeric AGS grading system is proprietary.  The ASET image is proprietary.  The name American Gem Society Laboratories is, of course, proprietary.  I'm not big on that word, and they didn't ask me if they should use it, but it is technically correct.  

 

'Perfection' is the brand name of the client who ordered the report.
