Ordered My Engagement Ring. Can You Please Comment?


Recommended Posts

I ordered this at Bluenile. As you know, there is a 30 days return gaurantee. I am waiting for the stone to arrive, but according to the numbers, can you make a comment? I have done tons of researches and this is one of the best I can get for my budget:


GIA Cert

Excellent Cut, G-Color, VS1-Clarity

1.21 Carat

6.81 x 6.85 x 4.21 mm

Crown: 34.5 degree

Pavilion: 40.8 degree

Depth %: 61.6%

Table %: 57%

Symmetry: Excellent

Polish: Excellent

Girdle: Medium to slightly thick

Culet: None

Fluorescence: None


I have also used the Holloway Cut Adviser (http://www.pricescope.com/cutadviser.asp) to dertermine it is a very good cut.


My only concern is the G Color. I will see the diamond in person soon and if I don't like the color, I might consider switching to a 1ct D VS1 stone.

Consider getting it appraised by an independent appraiser during your 30 day window. That's what it's for. Looking at the numbers in the advertising is useful in choosing one stone from a list of thousands but when it gets down to analyzing a particular stone there is no substitute for an actual inspection and expert assistance is extremely useful.
