Really wish I had seen this thread a while ago. So here it goes.
I'm very close to purchasing a Diamond for an engagment ring. I have the GIA report and the diamond has all the features for a low price. The problem is it has quite a few twinning wisps. I'm not sure the protocol of posting on here the report but would love some feedback. It is with a dealer who is buying on my behalf. I'm not sure the depth and table is all that great either as I've read about the 60-60 diamond.
Here is the Gia report.
Taking a quick look at the GIA report depending on what is most important to you this diamond can be good or average in terms of its specs.
With clarity when you see the inclusions listed on the plot on the GIA report they are actually listed in order of their prevalence.
So the twinning wisps are not the inclusion that set the grade at SI1, if considered on their own without the feather it is very possible they are VS or higher.
Wisps can be some of the best inclusions as they look almost like a spider web in person very very thin and hard to see some times under magnification.
They are mostly white in color but I have seen some dark ones. From what I can see on the report I wouldnt be to worried about the clarity or the wisps.
The comment "Additional wisps are not shown and surface graining not shown" just means that there were some wisps and graining that was so minute that the grader didnt see it worth mentioning on the plot.
The depth and table arent ideal, but they work well together and with the crown angel, would have been better if the pavilion was a touch steeper.
A few good points about the diamond:
it has a very good face up size at around 6.55mm I suspect it could have been even bigger face up if the girdle was thinner. It will also be quite bright and hide color well.
There are a few trade offs though, the added brightness will come at the expense of a bit of lost fire and scintillation in favor of brightness.
I attached an ASET image below that basically shows the brightness of the diamond in color, compared to an ideal cut on the left. You can see the diamond looks flatter and dosent have as much contrast.
Essentially the tradeoff is added brightness and size vs fire and scintillation. With this diamond it is really hard for me to say if its a keeper or not it is one of the few that you really need to see in person.
