Diamond Query: Choosing Between an IGI and GIA Diamond


| Anonymous Reader


Hi Sebastian,

I found your website super interesting. I'm looking to hear your opinion about one diamond.

What could you tell me about this diamond GIA # 2256389783? If you click on this link you will also be able to see a video of the diamond. Could you please tell me whether it's a good buy or not so much? Best regards!

Thank you for your inquiry, which was received in our comment section. I am happy to help. I thought it would be easier to communicate through email.

You had attached two links and asked for my advice on which one I would choose. I was able to pull up the below, but when I clicked on the second link a specific diamond did not come up. Please double check.

I will wait for your reply!

Thank you for the answer. I appreciate that. I'm choosing a diamond for engagement ring. I can use only a diamond from one seller because only they will make ring the way I like.

First one was this: https://www.geselle.pl/images/items/7557/certyfikat-nr-1183320939-gia-brylant-046-ct-si2-g-geselle-jubiler_big.jpg

Second: https://www.geselle.pl/images/items/7594/certyfikat-nr-296722468-igi-brylant-0-45ct-si1-e-geselle-jubiler_big.jpg

 

IGI Report

Third: https://www.geselle.pl/images/items/7646/certyfikat-nr-2286999996-gia-brylant-0-46-ct-si1-g-geselle-jubiler_big.jpg

First one is 300$ cheaper then second and third. (the price included all the work needed to create ring) And I'm thinking about choosing it. What do you think?

PS. This is my shortlist of the diamonds company listed. I think this three looks most interesting.

Thanks for sending the three diamond links. The first link when I click on it, it says “404 Not Found”. The second diamond is an IGI diamond. IGI is a well-known diamond grading institution. Their grading standards, however, are not as strict as GIA or AGS. So, I do not typically recommend.

The GIA diamond you selected has excellent proportions/angles. It does, however, have strong fluorescence. How do you feel about that?

It worked! Thanks for the attached GIA report. This is the diamond to go for out of your selection. The proportions are in the preferred range.

This is an eye-clean SI2 diamond based on the knowledge of the twinning wisp inclusions. Just note, twinning wisps can make a diamond appear hazy.

Your opinion was valuable for me. And the ring looks great. The gem is full of light even in very low light 🙂 Thank you for the help!

Terrific! Thanks for letting me know!
