Plan to buy a D color diamond with the following details:

Cert: GIA
Cut: R Billiant
Carat: 1.0
Color: D
Clarity: VS1
Depth: 60%
Table: 60%
Girdle: Medium to very thick, faceted
Cutlet: None
Polish: Very Good
Symmetry: Very Good
Fluoresence: Strong Blue

Price quote: $8,600

Questions:

1) Is this a well/average cut stone.

2) Is this a fair/good price for a D color stone?

3) Is the characteristics of this stone worth the value?

4) Do I need to look for another stone?

Any suggestion and feedback are welcome.

--Diane.

1) Is this a well/average cut stone.
The table and depth percentages look great, although they don't always tell the whole story. The girdle is "medium to very thick", but I wouldn't be overly concerned about it.

2) Is this a fair/good price for a D color stone?
It's not cheap. You can find similar stones for around $7,000-$7500 or less.

3) Is the characteristics of this stone worth the value?
It sounds like a nice diamond, but the price is high and it has a strong fluorescence. That fluorescence could be a real problem.

4) Do I need to look for another stone?
It wouldn't hurt.
