I think it would be lovely. I’d just make sure there’s no big black spots in it or anything like that.

I really like the crushed ice look personally!

I have a CMB and I LOVE it! It’s 1ct but clarity and color were higher than your stats posted.. picked mine in person over the larger ( 1.25ct H colored) diamond which was classified as a Cushion Brilliant – aside from the the obvious color difference my CMB performed better in terms of brilliance and sparkle in both store and outdoor lighting. 

I also want to add that it’s symmetry was stated as good – and it still sparkles like a mofo – the fact that mine (like above) has “excellent” polish really helps the overall cut. It’s unfortunate that with fancy cuts GIA doesn’t give a rating on the “cut” but you should be able to do your own assessment based of the Table percentage and overall thickness of the rock.

@planner007:  where are you getting this stone? That price seems a little too good, even for an SI1. Keep in mind that cushion modified brilliants have a high facet rate and inclusions can be super visable in due to the depth of the cut.

All this said, if it’s a real GIA cert from a legit dealer (meaning it’s real) it seems like a good deal.  Do you have the GIA spec sheet? Seeing where the inclusions are will make a huge difference in price. I say all this as someone who has a cushion modified brilliant and who’s FI spent the better part of 3 months researching them (including pricescope ha) I <3 a cushion.

@planner007:  may be better off- like I said, that price seemed on the low side. I personally wouldnt go below an vs2 on a cushion anyway- good luck with your hunt!
