Joe, you are the man. Thanks for all your work here.
Would love your analysis on this stone.
I’m considering this pear-shaped natural diamond, priced at $9200.
The GIA report is here:https://www.gia.edu/report-check?reportno=2201375226&s=1596682562444
This is from a “wholesaler” so no link to an online image, but it looks eye clean to me with minimal bow tie.
Thanks so much.
I can’t add much without seeing a video since the report doesn’t capture how the pear is cut. This diamond is relatively deep, so it faces up smaller than average for a 1.7ct. At 9.87×6.44mm, it’s the same size as the 1.51 E SI2 below (9.97×6.32mm). You could potentially save some money looking at 1.5ct diamonds with the same spread.
A video would also help calibrate what you consider eye-clean given the inclusion plot of the 1.7 E SI2 to see if the 1.51 E SI2 is a viable alternative. But if you liked the 1.7 E SI2, it might be reasonable.
