An I color in an Excellent cut will look great! And I’m not sure why SI2 should be “unbearable” – all I can see is some thin twinning wisps that are barely noticeable even at 40x magnification.

My only concern is that it scored higher than a 2 on the HCA tool: http://www.pricescope.com/tools/hca, but if you love it in person and it’s sparkly, then you can just disregard that completely – a GIA certified Excellent cut is going to be a much better performer than most diamonds you see in real life anyway!

@mousiegirl:  no problem! I’m sure you’ll love it. As I said, it’s going to be MUCH better cut than most of the stones you see in real life, and cut is king. 🙂

And I can definitely relate – I almost went nuts the first couple of days after we ordered the ring, and I was second guessing the choice like crazy. I’m sure yours will come as a very pleasant surprise.

By the way, if you do decide to go to some brick and mortar jewellers, I’d really recommend going to a window to compare the stones. The lights they have in those stores are meant to make anything shine like crazy, so you’re better off taking a look in natural light.
