First, thanks for the wonderful resource that your website is! I am trying to find an engagement ring. I have this emerald diamond here and am wondering how well cut do you think it is? In addition, do you think it is a good value and what do you deem as its weakest attributes?
It’s a matter of personal taste, but I prefer a lower corner ratio so that it is more rectangular than octagonal.
I think something like the diamond below would be a better value. It’s a 0.07ct difference to go up one color grade and save $950. The 1.29 F VS1 is a bit bigger at 7.57x5mm compared to the 7.26×5.01mm of the 1.22 E VS1, but I don’t think 0.3mm is worth $950 (15%) more. It also has a lower corner ratio.
