Hi bees! I could use another set of eyes. My boyfriend and I are deciding on whether or not we want this diamond and I have stared at these photos so much my eyes are going to pop out! I’d like to see what you guys think of the finger coverage and if it is too big or small for my finger.
Here are the specs: 1.7 ct, triple ex cut, VS2, I, size 4.75 finger
It was kinda slopply put into the wax mold and is covered in the jeweler’s fingerprints but it was just so I could get a visual on the finger coverage.
I’d love to know what you think! Thanks!

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?

I agree with @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?

Thank you all for your responses! I was worried it faced up a bit too small for its carat size, the measurements are 7.56 – 7.60 x 4.77. It really is a beautiful diamond and I am not sure if I am just being too picky or what

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!
