Wondering if anyone would be able to let me know if this looks like a quality diamond on paper.

Would you say that a car described as follows:

Colour: white
Wheelbase: 2850 mm / 112"
Body style: 2 doors
Wheel size: 225/40 R 19 front, 245/35 R 19 rear
Engine: 3 litres, petrol, turbo-charged
Brakes: disc front and rear
Mileage: 0 (brand new)

looks like a quality car (on paper)? That's more or less the question you are asking.

There are no red flags, except maybe the thick girdle and the 2.00 weight, possibly indicating a diamond cut primarily with the aim of weight retention rather than beauty/performance. Just like the relatively large wheels on the car may indicate a performance model, which may not be suitable as a family runabout or as a cheap-to-run car.

However, in neither case there is enough information to decide whether it is "quality". You like the diamond, and you think you have paid a fair price, both of which are very important.

First of all congratulations on buying a big diamond that is certified by the GIA.

Well, a GIA certified diamond has its own identity globally and it assured you of a legit and scientific method of appraisal/testing, in fact, GIA is the mother institute of all diamond grading and appraisal services worldwide.

Apart from your diamond, it is a 2.00carat cushion cut diamond with a bit THICK to the SLIGHTLY THICK girdle. I assumed that the diamond girdle is a bit thick to get a perfect 2.00 weight and it must be the reason behind the girdle thickness. However, the diamond has negligible flaws and seems very clean from its center. Even, the diamond polish and symmetry described 'excellent' in the certificate. In all combinations, your diamond is a perfect masterpiece.

All the best!
