Hey everyone,

So I actually have a really unique situation and sad situation! My original diamond fell out of my engagement ring when I was in Spain on my honeymoon!!!! I was devastated. Thank goodness we have insurance and now I'm trying to replace it with something similar. I had a 2.54 H color SI1 diamond and wanted to know if you guys think this would be a suitable replacement? Blue Nile recommended it and informed me it was definitely eye clean but I don't know ? Any advice ASAP would be helpful since insurance needs info immediately. Thanks so much! Below are 2 links.  The first one says unavailable at the top but if you scroll down you can see all the info.  The second is a video :)

Hello Tiffany, welcome to DiamondReview!

 

From the video, I would say that it is very likely to be clean seen from the top - the inclusions are scattered rather than concentrated in one area, and the main grading characteristic (a crystal + feather combination) seems to be transparent and located off-centre. Unfortunately the only real test is for you to see it when it is set: "eye-cleanness" is quite dependent on personal characteristics and circumstances.

 

As to whether this is similar/suitable for replacement, depends very much on what you had before. It clearly matches it from a colour, clarity and weight point of view - we don't know how your lost stone was cut. This one is well cut (though the crown could be a little higher for my taste), but it may still look quite different from your old one. Do you have any records of a lab report for the lost stone?

omgosh thank you so much for getting back to me so quickly!  do you think i should try and find another diamond with a higher crown?  what does having a higher crown do?

 

below please find the specs from my previous diamond and if you can let me know if you think the one I showed you would be just as good in terms of just pure specs since I can't see it yet.  I really really appreciate your help!

You are very welcome - you did say you were in a hurry, and we aim to please! ;)

 

I think the replacement is cut at least as well if not better than your previous stone, and it seems a very good match for diameter and proportions (if anything, given a slightly less steep pavilion, I would expect the new diamond to be a bit brighter - at least in theory!).

 

Crown height is - at this level - a matter of personal preference; by and large a higher crown means more fire (coloured sparkles) and less brightness, but the two diamonds here have the same crown height, although the new one has a slightly larger crown (slightly smaller table), so you may see a few more coloured sparkles flying out of it.

 

If you liked your now-lost treasure, I would definitely go for this one, provided you can return/replace it if the inclusion is more visible than it appears in the video (I don't think it will be, but better safe than sorry, especially at this price/size!).
