Diamond review help please

Recommended Posts

Hello. I came across this website while attempting to determine if my diamond is truly is a well cut diamond. I am concerned because In darker lighting it seems dull & lifeless in the center. I don’t think it is a nail head effect and maybe it is a reflection of my head, but the “shadow” is only visible in certain lighting, not in all. I’d really appreciate reviews of my diamond. Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to your feedback. 
 

The GIA report is as follows:

7.08 - 7.11 x 4.39mm

1.33 carat

TBL 54%
TD 61.8%

On paper it looks perfectly fine - and I mean fine. Are you sure it is totally scrupulously clean, especially on the pavilion? All you need is a bit of skin grease smudge from a finger and lo! Lifeless and dull!

The cut is fine. These parameters won't give you nail head effect. I wouldn't change a thing as far as the cut is concerned.

Thank you for posting, Furqan Shari.

Thanks for your insight, davidelevi. I’ll give my diamond a really good clean and evaluate it.
