I’m not an oval expert, but I think it comes down to your eye with fancy cuts. I’d use the videos to see how I feel about it overall — how bad is the bow tie to me? is it really eye clean? is there any haziness? do I like the way it sparkles? do I like the ratio? how do I like the color? etc.

That particular diamond looks to have a pretty bad bow tie. It also looks too warm for my own liking, but that’s totally personal preference. If you think it’s great, then it might be the one for you! If there’s a return period, you could get it and see for yourself how it performs.

Have you looked on Rare Carat? They have a rating system that I find helpful.

As far as that oval, has the seller sent you any kind of report on it? ie, ratios, color, clarity?

Love ovals! Have one myself! I have to agree with another poster that this oval seems to have a predominant bow tie. If that bothers you, don’t get it. Try rare carat as they can filter all this stuff for you!
