Opinions For This Diamond Please

Looks fine on paper; the girdle is a little thicker than I'd like it to be ideally, but it won't make a huge visible difference on diameter.

 

£2000 sounds in line with competitive US internet offers; if it includes UK VAT at 20%, something strange is going on. It may be that you are getting a bargain, or it may be that something is an issue with the stone. Can you see it? Can you return it for no penalty?

I had a hard time seeing the image, but it looks like the weight is 0.61.  If this is the case I agree with Davide's comments.  At first I thought the stone weight 0.81 in which case it would have been an absolute bargain.  Once again, if the price quoted includes VAT, it is still a bargain.  I am not a believer in bargains, so I would make sure to protect the purchase with a money back guarantee.

 

All the best.

Hi,

 

Thanks to all that have replied. Apologises for the quality of the GIA report it never looked great on the phone but I assumed that this was just the result of pinch and zoom, this whole search has literally been managed on the phone. However right now she is bathing the kids so for now Im free. I have attached another report for the same diamond which should be nice and clear preventing any confusion. The price is around £2000 and does not include VAT. I will be receiving the sarine light report soon and will upload it for support. I have checked with the supplier and I can return if I am not happy without a restock fee.

 

Please bear with me if the reprot has not uploaded I have used both the basic and advanced uploader but everything is telling me that I cannot upload that kind of file from PDF, adobe, excel, word. So I have copied and pasted below
