Based on the data you have posted, there is no way to answer either question.

 

Colour? Clarity? Who is grading those? Where are you buying this (in a physical store, through an online dealer, from a private seller)?

 

You are also missing some crucial information even to guess as to whether it will "shine": crown and pavilion angles. The depth and table aren't particularly promising in this respect, but they aren't all that matters.

 

As to whether it will shine "as she wants", that rather depends on her expectations... have you gone around with her looking at different diamonds? What does she like?

If she wants "sparkles", I wouldn't put my money on colour and clarity, but on cut... and that's the area where this diamond is weakest ("very good" cut means in the bottom half or lower, nowadays).

 

As to price, it's quite a low price for a similarly graded diamond, but this isn't a good sign: since visibility of inclusions at VS1 isn't an issue, and neither is colour at D, all the "saving" comes from the cut quality. http://www.diamondreview.com/diamonds/?sortOrder=price&sortDesc=1&fShape=Rnd&fCaratLo=0.85&fCaratHi=0.89&fColorLo=D&fColorHi=D&fClarityLo=VS1&fClarityHi=VS1&fCutLo=&fCutHi=poor&fDepthLo=50.0&fDepthHi=80.0&fTableLo=40.0&fTableHi=80.0&fSymLo=&fSymHi=poor&fPolLo=&fPolHi=poor&fCulLo=&fCulHi=vlarge&fFlrLo=none&fFlrHi=med&fPriceLo=0&fPriceHi=1000000&fLabGIA=1&fLabAGS=1&adv=1

 

Pick something like G/VS2, and put the money you save in getting a better cut.

 

This one for example is going to kick the D/VS1 out of the field

Or this, if you prefer something looking slightly larger (though it's nowhere as nicely cut as the one above):http://www.b2cjewels.com/dd-4655039-0.82-carat-Round-diamond-G-color-VS2-Clarity.aspx?sku=4655039&utm_source=diamondreview.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=diamondreview.com
