Hello, I was wondering if anyone would like to show their “good” or “fair” cut diamonds. My one request to my DH was that my diamond would be an excellent or great cut, but unfortunately he wasn’t able to get that for me. May I see pictures of your diamonds? How do you feel about your diamond not being such a great cut?

I have a “good” cut diamond but I don’t have a picture to send right now. I know that “good” cut stones get a lot of flack around here but I don’t know why. My stone is very sparkly and I love it. Maybe if I put it right next to a better cut stone and compared then I would see a difference but I never feel that my stone is lackluster. Color was very important to me as I wanted a colorless stone so cut got sacrificed a bit. Just for your info my stone is 0.7, F, SI1 and good cut. Hope this helps.

the appraiser rated mine “good”. I was my grandmothers so I’m not surprised the cut wasn’t excellent. I love my ring, but if we had purchased one, it would have been an excellent.

My center stone is rated either “very good” or “good”. I honestly can’t remember which one at the moment (although I thought I would never forget all those stats — ha, ha!). When I picked this stone, I fell in love with it pretty much at first glance. It turns out that I’m a bit color sensitive, so I loved the color of it. And I kept coming back to it again and again. I consistently picked it out of the stones my jeweler was showing me.
It was only after I had totally fallen for it that my jeweler told me all the stats on the stone, including the cut grade.
I love this stone. Absolutely, absolutely love it. It has amazing sparkle, and I think it is quite beautiful. I think seeing it in person helped make going with a “lower” cut grade much easier for me. If I had ordered off the internet, I wouldn’t have been as confident with this choice.
