It is G in colour, SI2 (told there would be no inclusions visible to the naked eye), and Has a “very good” cut.
I ordered this diamond last week and I don’t get to see it until it is complete in The setting which is another 2 weeks! Please be honest; is that a good quality diamond or fairly average? Will it sparkle lots and look good?

I think that sounds good like a good quality diamond. But I also think it’s average becausae a lot of people buy that rating cause it’s a great value for the money. But honestly, no one can really tell a DEF from GHI on it’s own, and SI2 can be eye clean unless someone is inspecting your stone from like 4 inches away. I think it’ll sparkle and look great!

Sparkle depends on a lot of different geometric features of the diamond. Cut is usually the most important factor for sparkle, so it sounds like you have a good quality diamond (assuming it’s GIA or AGS certified)

@Gemma_Leigh: It likely is a lovely diamond, but there’s some missing information. What shape is the diamond (cut ratings are only accurate for certain cuts)? And who is it graded by? (GIA and AGS are the most accurate)

@Gemma_Leigh: I think it will sparkle a lot because it is a very good cut and that has the greatest affect on sparkle. The shape can affect the way it sparkles too, but I assume you got a round diamond because you didn’t specify. Rounds have more sparkle than any other shape IMO.
ETA: I just read in your other thread its a princess cut. They sparkle lots too 🙂

It sounds pretty good and I’m sure it will be gorgeous. The only thing I think I would consider “average” about it is the cut since that’s the factor that affects sparkle the most.
ETA: For some reason, I, too, assumed it is a round brilliant.

@Juliepants: Probably because most diamonds are round. I think on the poll for shape of center diamond round was about half of all the rings for girls on WB.

The stats sound about average for an ering, and I have yet to see one that doesn’t sparkle and make the wearer of the ring sparkle 🙂

@zagora: Oops sorry! It is a princess cut and GIA certified

The actual ‘Cut’ determines the sparkle. Therefore, go as high in that area as budget allows. Especially, for a diamond shapes that are not round . Based on your specs above your diamond sounds like it will be very nice and will sparkle. Good selection! Please post pics when your ring arrives!

Cant tell from what u have given. Missing lots of spec. And by far the most important spec for me is the cut. The sparkles of a stone is determine by the cut. Color grade is by preference, lots of the folks out there can’t distinguish a colorless stone (D E F) and nearly colorless (G H I J), but I’m a color sensitive person so I can tell if it’s colorless or not. Clarity, it depends on how big the stone is and same for the inclusion. If it’s big enough u can see through for the table that’s Not eye clean to me. SI range isn’t that eye clean but it all depends on the location. Or u can ask if the stone is eye clean from a certain distance.

@Gemma_Leigh: Nobody here can really tell you if its a good quality diamond based on those specs. We can tell you for sure that it is better “spec-wise” than a H,I,J.K, I1,I2, Good Cut …. you get the idea (something tells me you already knew this :)). BUT, without seeing it in person PP are just “guessing”!
IF you can get an ASET image of the diamond that would help show how the diamond performs under certain lighting conditions and to determine if there is any “leakage” that would prevent it from performing optimally.

I’m sure the your ring will be gorgeous. By what you have given us, there’s no reason to worry.

If it’s GIA graded, I’m sure it’s going to be a sparkling beauty. Definitely sounds like a good diamond, and I’ve really looked at a boatload of them.

I’d say it’s an average cut, but I’m sure you will love it regardless of what the specific numbers say, because it’s your ring!
