Who did the report???

(IMHO)The clarity looks like it might be less then what's on the report.

I like Champagne colored diamonds, and I like the color of the one you are considering. You should be able buy this one at a reasonable price because of the visible inclusions.

I really can't tell from the information given.
Have you seen the diamond?
Who did the report?
How bad are the inclusions?
How much "sparkle" does this diamond have? Each diamond is different, and that is even more so with colored diamonds.
The price seems reasonable to me, but you have to determine if the price is reasonable to you.

buying on-line. Also, if you are using a Major credit card you are a bit safer.
What setting are thinking of using???

If you have a better idea it would be highly appreciated

I like that basic design.

But you might want to consider using the colorless accent diamond that are shown.
You may have a hard time trying to match the center diamond with matched colored accent diamonds.
I personally like the contrast of colorless diamonds next to a colored diamond.

WOW $400 seems real cheap for a fancy color diamond that is almost 1ct. Where did you find this stone?

Didn't win that semimount

Not lucky today...

I am thinking to send this stone to EGL or GIA for certification, can anyone tell me how to contact the nearest office? I am from Canada, doesn't look like they have any offices here....

Or all this cert. stuff would be just waisting time and money?
