    Okay I had this great long reply typed out and weddingbee erased it… 🤦🏻‍♀️ Anyways, the size looks lovely on you! Though the finger coverage is similar to my 1.15ct on my size 5 finger so I’d wonder if that diamond is cut a bit deep so it faces up a little small?

    @newbeegirl:. It faces up small for a 1.7 especially for your finger size.

    I think the finger coverage looks perfect

    I agree with PPs; it seems to face up small. What are the measurements?

    The cut is too deep.

    @careymeaway:  The size itself is fine, but this diamond is cut too deep at somewhere around 63%.  Well cut modern round brilliant diamonds should be no more than 62.4% (some prefer no more than 62% to maximize on spread).  This means the diamond faces up smaller than a well cut 1.7ct stone, thus you are paying for carat weight you can’t see.  Many diamonds are cut deep like this in order to retain weight, but diamonds that are cut too deep (or too shallow) tend to have performance issues (may appear dark in certain lighting, may have less brilliance and sparkle vs. a well cut diamond, etc.).  Cut is king, so I’d recommend passing on this diamond and researching more on cut quality.  GL!
