hi everyone! this is my first post here. i just bought a cushion cut x-factor style (modified cushion) from Lauren B a few weeks ago. It’ll sit in a single halo. it’s beautiful.
I went to 2 other jewlers as well and saw probably a total of 10-12 diamonds. I chose this one based on a number of factors, including the way it looked in person, the way it shined/sparked/brilliance, price range and it fell within my range of specs (I was looking for H-I and VVS to VS clarities), reputation, etc.
Question is: can you please check out my GIA grading report and let me know if my 2 carat diamond is on paper within good ranges of a well-cut diamond? I know the diamond looked good in person, but I’ve been constantly reading and watching videos online post-purchase, basically fueling my anxiety because I won’t see the finished ring for another few weeks.

You need to go to pricescope.com and ask. But in the end… cuts like that are more about the performance to your eye.

sgillz44 : I agree with PP. Try pricescope. In My Humble Opinion – I wouldnt buy a diamond with fluorescence. Also, your imperfections are towards the center of the diamond. I would choose another.

It’s harder with a cushion. All those measurements, tools, etc…are for rounds. Cushions can be cut in such a variety of ways, it’s more of an eye thing. The imperfections are minuscule and since it is a VS, I doubt they’re close enough to the surface to see without a scope. I wouldn’t be concerned about them as much as the placement of the feather (which may be along the edge). Ask a jeweler about that one. Fluorescence — no biggie. Fluorescent stones are beautiful and I dig the way they glow in the dark…lol. It isn’t even strong fluorescence.
