videos photos of the Diamond and
ring we are offering.
I loved something about this diamond from the first time I saw it. The color is remarkable. Although GIA gave it H, we thought it would get a higher grade- it looks so.....clear? I don't know- I can't exactly put my finger on it- and I don't know that I'd want to.
Sometimes it's just enough to enjoy something without analyzing it to minute detail.
That is not to say you shouldn't be ultra critical when you're making sure to spend all this money. We can feel comfortable because we know our sources very well. We purchased the diamond without a GIA report, then submitted it for extra verification.
But the bottom line is that a stone will either "speak to you" or it won't.
If you like the photos, I believe you will love the diamond. Experience of selling many thousands of diamonds based on these photos bears this out.
You can see the SI2 imperfection at about "9:00" in the photo below. I don't find it to be easily visible in person. The stone has a lot of sparkle in person that kind of obliterates the feather.
As I mentioned above, there's a lot of sparkle here- and in all lighting situations.
Judging cut, to some extent, is a matter of taste. For example this stone is rather long.
I like it. Others may prefer a fatter oval. Again, photos here are crucial- do you like the shape?
The ring suits the diamond
perfectly. The bottom part is in 18karat yellow gold.

A note about photographing diamonds:
The main goal we have is to most realistically represent the diamonds we are selling. In the case of Natural Fancy Colored Diamonds, they have different appearances based on the light source. You may notice that the diamond looks darker in some of the photos, and lighter in others. It is this way in real life as well. We choose the photos ( which are not retouched in any way for color) that most realistically represent the lightest and darkest face of the diamond.
