Superficially, the price is fine but I'm sure you already knew that. Get it appraised by someone who is working for YOU, not for the seller. IGI grading is often significantly different from GIA grading and it makes the shopping process remarkably difficult with their stones. A few grades can make a big difference and the discrepancies never seem to be in your favor. Make sure to ask the appraiser about any damage that may have occured since IGI inspected it. This can be a problem with private sellers who may not even know that their stone is damaged and who are relying on paperwork given to them at the time of purchase for their sale.
