Trying to read an old appraisal
Quote this post and reply to it Post#1 @ 07-23-11 , 06:23 PM


Hello, folks!

I have an old appraisal for a .96 carat diamond that I've inherited and based upon what I'm reading online, it isn't making a lot of sense.

It says that the ring (it is no longer in the ring) "contain[s] one round brilliant cut diamond weighing .96ct (by actual weight). With a clarity of VS1, color H, measuring 6.4mm x 3.6mm."

Am I right in saying that the measurements don't make sense? What could they be referring to? The diamond itself looks proportionate and not a shallow cut at all, and the fire is fantastic.

I'm having it reappraised as we speak (wish I would have done some reading before I had it sent out) and I just would like people's help on trying to interpret the measurements, because there is no way the ratio is 2:1.

Any thoughts? Thanks!

The depth percentage is 3.6/6.4 = 56% This is a typical depth percentage for many diamonds. The diameter is 6.4mm and the total depth is 3.6mm...nothing wrong with that at all.
