I wanted to start off by thanking you for providing this great resource and taking the time to answer questions!
I was hoping you could chime in on this diamond that caught my attention: LD12589170
Its posted by Blue Nile and comes in at 2.07 Carats. From the research I’ve been able to do, coupled with the resources you provide my amateur opinion is that it’s close to the efficient frontier, has good depth, and the table isn’t too big either?
My only concerns are the large inclusion located on the bottom left, as well as the medium fluorescence. I guess the fluorescence isn’t a total deal breaker, but would that inclusion feature too prominently at a VS2 rating?
Thanks for your help!
I think the inclusion would be fine. I usually try to avoid recommending medium fluorescence in combination with clouds and internal graining because my hypothesis is that the fluorescence interacts with these two features to create the hazy fluorescent effect.
The next best choice I saw was the 2.01 F SI1 below. It has no fluorescence and the black crystal is 0.1mm in real size terms (less than the width of a human hair) and off to the edge where it can be put close to a prong. However, it’s more expensive. Maybe the difference in setting price with JA’s 25% off sale can bring the two closer in price. But if the fluorescence is fine in the G, I think the inclusion would be fine if you want to check it out.
