8 perfect hearts without 8 perfect arrows?

:D hi all,

 

just wondering if it is possible to see 8 perfect hearts from the pavillion of the diamond but not 8 perfect arrows from the top? or do they go hand-in-hand, as in 8 perfect hearts must come with 8 perfect arrows?

 

also, what's the criteria for GIA to inscribe the GIA no. on the girdles as different vendors are giving me different answers. some said that:-

1. laser encryption is for inferior diamonds, laser no. is to make up for its inferiority

2. laser encryption is an optional item / most people doesn't like to have diamonds which are 1 carat above to have laser encryption.

4. laser encryption is only for superior diamonds whereas anything inferior GIA will not inscribe it.

 

naturally, those vendors that have the GIA no. inscribe said item no. 4 and those that don't have said item no. 1 - 3. All of the diamonds come with GIA certificates and weight 1 carat plus.

 

thanks a lot for replying.

The hearts and arrows are related but they are not mutually exclusive. You can have perfect hearts without perfect arrows and visa versa. I should mention that there is considerable debate about what constitutes 'perfect'.

 

GIA and others will inscribe anything that they’re paid to inscribe. GIA has a product called a 'diamond dossier' that has the inscription of the report number as part of the bundle of services instead of providing a plotting diagram. This is popular with the smaller stones because it's a less expensive service than their ‘diamond quality report’. The result of all of this is that stones with the Dossier will always have the inscription and stones with the DQR may or may not have it. It has nothing to do with the quality of the stone.

True / Not true from my experience most people seem to like the inscriptions.
