Review this diamond

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

I was wondering if you can review this diamond and tell me if it's worth buying? Online price for diamond is 4,019

 

Thanks!

I'm a complete newbie, but just so you know Rarecarat evaluates that price as not a good ideal. It estimates the value of that diamond is $3,740, and thus your price of $4,019 is not good

The secret seems to be your assumed endorsement of RareCarat and their automated pricing model. 

Here, for example, are a half a dozen similar offers for less, including one for what I suspect is the exact same stone. It's not much less but it nicely highlights the issue of these theoretical models.

That said, the real heart of the question is what led to you that stone in the first place.  Why H/VVS2?  Why that particular stone? 

I see the photo in a ring. Is that what you're shopping for?  The details of that may turn out to be more important than you're expecting.
