Hi All!

I'm basically a lurker here on DT. I have posted once before but it's been a few months back. I'm considering buying a diamond that is a round .73 G VS2 Ideal cut (per the Sarin report). The brilliancescope shows that the white light return is in the upper part of high range and both the color light and scintillation are in the middle of the very high range. Since I have never seen a diamond that I can compare to the brilliancescope report, I'm having a hard time coming to a decision on this one. I know ultimately the decision is mine but I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on this. I'm on a very limited budget and I don't want to spend a lot having several stones sent to me for viewing. Should I hold out for a diamond that scores very high in all three areas? Will the difference be that noticeable? Thanks in advance for any help that you can give.

If, it's in the upper part of the high range, no the difference will not be noticable. IF it's a great price, go for it, it sounds like a lovely diamond!

Hi,Msmith;

The bars on the BScope tell only a limited part of the diamond story. More importantly,focus on the 5 light images that are displayed below the bar graph.

Is there an even full bodied distribution of light across the entire surface of the stone? Or does only
one segment(s) of the diamond light up?
Is there a harmonious blend of Brilliance, Fire, and Scintillation or does one predominate more than the other(s)? These images give you a more accurate depiction of the diamond's light performance. On our website
we provide you with animated BScopes
(BScope Animate)that enable you to video the light performance of each SuperbCert on measures of Brilliance, Fire, and Scintillation. I believe these animates will be extremely helpful to you and greatly
assist in your visualization of the stone.

Thanks for responding so quickly. Even though I don't post a great deal, I know that I've become a much better consumer because of this site! The brilliancescope file that I received is a .gif file. If I can animate it, I'm not sure how to do it. Anyone have any suggestions?

If it is flashing through the light sequences it is the animated gif.
