Hi Janice,
My name too. Personally I would avoid EGL graded diamonds and stick with one with a GIA or AGS lab report. EGL has a tendancy of not really having the same grading standards as the major labs. In fact they have an SI3 that the other two don't use, so don't think that a SI1 D from the EGL grading lab would get the same color and clarity grade from the major labs. Otherwise the cutter would have sent it to GIA or AGS for grading. The price *sounds* good but does the stone really match what most in the industry would really call a SI1 D, or is the paper off? In my experience they are most always off.
Here is a GIA graded 1 3/4 ct. one to compare.

Thank you Janice and David for your replys.

Say this diamond I am looking at does turn out to be a F or a G and possibly a SI2 (clean to the naked eye) at Aust $ 17900.00 would it still be a good price. I had a look at the one on the diamond database Janice but because it is a VS2 and colour h -not apple for apples, it is hard me not being an experienced person with diamonds to say if there would be a price difference.

The reason I am asking these questions is number one I will never sell my diamond as I want to pass it onto my daughter and then my grandaughter and also because it has taken me a long time to find someone here that I feel I trust to do the right thing by me in the sales area. The person I am dealing with is not a retail store so that is why the price of his diamonds are good. I would not be able to afford a 1.79 from a retail store here. He said he will order and I can look and if not happy I don't have to buy. He seems to deal only in EGL diamonds though. What do you think ?????
Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Annie you are about right I say US $ 3500.00. Do you think this would be a good price for a 1.79 C E or F colour and say a SI2 if the specs are down on what the cert says ???

Janice, if the seller is going to order in the diamond for you, how can they possibly say that is an eye clean SI1? They haven't seen the stone. I'd be wary just from that aspect.

I suppose you have nothing to loose to have him order it in for you. But the problems with the reports as outlined by David & Jan still stand.

Do let us know how things are progressing - what did you decide to do?
