Is this $3000 0.80 ideal princess cut from JA a good deal?

I've been looking for an engagement ring for my girlfriend recently and settled on either a brilliant or princess cut however what was more important was the size. My girlfriend quite enjoys the effect of a larger diamond (larger than 0.50 anyway) and so I knew that buying it in a brick and mortar shop I was unlikely to find something of larger dimensions within my price range.

After doing a little research online I came across truthaboutdiamonds.com and JamesAllen.com. I'm aware of the affiliate marketing scheme but I didn't want to disqualify them purely for that, especially when i could use some help. Having asked for a bit of advice the diamond linked above was recommended.

I was delighted to see that it was even bigger than 0.70 carats but I was a little cautious about buying it without the picture. However my contact emphasized that it was a good deal and liable to be pounced upon relatively quickly. His manner was friendly and he answered all of my questions promptly and in good humour but I wanted a couple more opinions so that I could approach my first experience of buying diamonds online in confidence.

If you would be kind enough to give me your own read on this diamond and price I would be really appreciative. Thank you for your time!

hi popcorn,
If it matters--are you aware that comparable carat weights in a round vs. princess the round will face up larger than a princess?
Here's an example with another JA diamond. http://www.jamesallen.com/diamonds/...ond-1493733.asp
Princess diamonds are often less expensive than rounds though, just like the one you're looking at.
Be sure you chose a setting that will protect the corners.
