Question Regarding Diamond Scintillation

Recommended Posts

Greetings to everyone who reads this message,

To begin, I am new to this forum. I am also a diamond novice in need of some advice. I am currently on a quest to find a diamond for an engagement ring. I have been quoted £1250 a stone (GIA: Excellent cut, symmetry and polish) which I have viewed in person and it looked great. For those who are experienced in grading diamonds from a GIA report; how excellent is this cut? and how much brilliance/fire would I be expecting from a diamond with these measurements?

Thank you so much, I would be appreciative of any replies.
Kind regards,
Mark.

By and large that's all you need. The report is there to make sure that you have a reference to fair value, and everything checks out (assuming that the £1,250 you were quoted are inclusive of UK VAT).

Thank you for getting in touch Davide.

Yes, the price was inclusive of UK VAT. I'm no diamond expert but would this be a fair price for a stone of this kind?
