What counts is I love my soon-to-be-mine e-ring but the Diamond details seemed like gobbly-gook to me! 🙂 I know it’s a smaller stone and warmer as well… But does this still mean I have an okay Diamond? I don’t want to learn that it is an awful Diamond and was a horrid choice! It looked alright online while it was being made (and he said it’s beautiful in person and I don’t get to see it until the big day of proposal) but I think I just need reassurance 🙂

Yes that’s a good diamond. k is a much warmer stone color but so beautiful.

You may see some inclusions and it’ll be faintly yellow but I’m sure it’s beautiful! Congratulations 🙂

there’s no cut information so it could be an amazing performer or a complete dog Of a diamond. No way to know. without GIA or AGS standards, you don’t know what you’re getting.

It’s cut a little deep, so it might appear a little smaller than 0.34 carats, looking more like a 0.25 carat diamand. Go to diambd.com, it’s a good website for checking the measurements of diamands. The colour and the clarity are fine.

Is it graded? I have a GIA graded k colored diamond that looks sparkly and white. But I’ve seen non graded k colored diamonds that look light champagne. Also SI2 could be okay and eyeclean, or you might see inclusions. There’s nothing wrong with that though! My pear has an (obvious to me) inclusion and I like it that way.

Congratulations can’t wait to see it!

I love warmer diamonds! Mine is a GIA L-faint brown and it is incredibly sparkly. SI2 should be eye clean too. Color is a matter of preference not quality. As far as quality it just depends on the type of inclusions your diamond has and how they effect the light performance. in the end you will not care about the stats when you wear it. Enjoy your ring and congrats.

Without information on cut quality, an inclusion report, or a picture, it’s hard to say.

Cut is king, and has the most impact on sparkle/appearance, so without that it’s difficult to say. With regards to the other specs, again it’s difficult; lots of SI2 stones are ‘eye clean’ (meaning the inclusions are only visible to the very trained eye/under magnification), but some aren’t, and it can also depend on where they are (eg centre of the stone vs under a prong), and again on cut (a really well-cut stone can mask inclusions, with a poorer cut they’ll be more noticeable).
Colour is really personal preference, and as PPs said a K colour could appear anything from pretty white, to a more buttery/light champagne colour, depending on which lab has graded it, and also again on cut (well-cut stones tend to appear whiter).

What I’m noticing is that it must be cut “deep”, as its face size is small for its carat weight. I have several .33 diamonds (studs, pendant, & ring set) and they are all 4.5mm. This tells me that the stone seems a bit unbalanced in terms of the C’s. K SI2 could be beautiful if the cut and polish were also there. You can never really know until you’ve seen it, honestly. You might want to make sure he didn’t overpay for the diamond before the return window closes.

I have a vague picture but its the picture the creator took. I don’t know Diamonds but it looks beautiful but I also understand that the angles of the pictures are not straight on at all. I hope all will be well 🙂 I love the style.

And thank you everyone! It seems it looks like a toss up and a chance. I hope it is well. Honestly the price wasn’t horrible but I shall get it checked elsewhere on wit is received in order to ensure it is well and he didn’t overpay! 🙂

Do you know who graded the diamond K SI2?

Without cut angles, it is anyone’s guess. I agree, though, about who graded it. Without a reliable cert, you cannot be sure that even the stats you do have are correct.
