GIA REPORT #: 6197070408

On paper (the GIA report), there is plenty not to like about this diamond. This is a perfect example of why you can't choose a diamond based on the paper. I mean, just look at it!It's a very unusual shape. Some of you may not love it - others will find it stunning.I'm totally cool with that. Let's tackle the things on the report that are viewed as negatives.

1) Medium Blue Fluorescence. The fact is, a fair percentage of GIA graded Fancy Intense Yellow Diamonds with Medium or Strong Blue exhibit obvious milkiness and dullness of color, but not all. This is a great example of a Medium Blue diamond that actually looks more yellow due to the fluorescence. If the stone had this much color with no fluorescence, it's quite possible GIA would have graded it Fancy Vivid Yellow.

2) SI2 Clarity. In this case, the clarity grade is based on characteristics that are not contrasting to the color and sparkle - so you really don't see them naked eye.

Let's also remember that if the stone looked just like this- but was VS1 with no fluorescence, it would be at least 25% more money. So these characteristics ultimately are a positive attribut- they allow you to save money:)
