European Vs Brilliant Cut Round

Recommended Posts

I am in the market for an engagement ring and started shopping last week. A trusted family friend is a jeweler and is trying to sell me a 1.05 European cut, J color, VVs2 for $2800. I haven't seen the diamond yet and I am unfamiliar with the European cut.

 

At The Shane Company I found a stone I liked, a 1.09, but it is a K, I1. I couldn't tell a difference in color between this K and the I or Js, but could definitely see the inclusion on top under the 10x. They are asking $3690.

 

My questions:

 

1. Is the Euro cut undesirable?

2. With these limited details, do the prices seem fair, or at least in the ballpark?

3. I have read that I should stay away from I1 stones. Should I worry about the large inclusion on top of the stone from Shane, in case we ever want to do something else with the stone?

 

Thanks in advance for any insight.

Hi there!

I inherited my grandmother's european cut diamond which sounds about like the quality of the one you are looking at.

I have two very close friends in the jewelry business. The european cut is the way that they used to cut diamonds.. it is an old rare cut with more facets then a traditional round but if you didn't know that it was european you would probably not think it was different.. that is my personal untrained opinion.

Much luck to you in your diamond shopping
