I don't know much about pear shapes, only that I think they are pretty and feminine. Could some of you experts out there give me your opinion on this one?

Thanks so much!
Ashley

57% depth is a bit shallow.
There can be significant light leakage.
Preferable to have depth% in a range
from low to mid 60's.

I would also like to know the
type, location, and coloration of the SI-2 inclusions. Not all SI's
are eye-clean, especially in larger
diamonds. It is very difficult to tell from the attached photographs
how good or bad this SI-2 is.
Without additional information
I would stay away from this one.

The thought of buying any fancy shape diamond sight unseen without a return policy is probably not a good idea.

Besides the shallow depth, the fact that it has an EGL lab report is not comforting, especially in a SI2 clarity grade. Most of the EGL graded stones that I've seen were off by about 2-3 color and clarity grades. I would guess that if it went to GIA laboratories they would not get an SI2 clarity . The difference in price between an SI2 and I1 or I2 is huge.
