HI
I beleive that if you purchase a diamond for this price range you should buy one that has a g.i.a certificate,the g.i.a are known to be stricter when it come to color and clarity,than most well known laboratories.also If you'll want to upgrade in the future you will get a much higher price for the g.i.a laboratory graded stones than most other labs.if you want to get the most brillinace out of a round look for the excellent cut rating on the lab report of a stone.

The ratios of the cut seem very nice. This could be why it is priced higher than the average 1 ct diamond. Also it has a G color grade so it will usually be near or above $6000 for a stone like that.

Though for $7995 I would expect the price to include a setting. I suppose it's hard for jewelers to beat online prices.
