Diamond Query: Opinion on the Eyecleanliness of a 0.82-Carat G-SI1 Excellent Cut Round Diamond

| Anonymous Reader

Hi Sebastian,

I’ve been sifting through diamonds on James Allen and reading online to educate myself as much as possible for the past week or so, and your website has been very helpful to me. Thank you!

I have found one diamond that I am very interested in, and was wondering if you could give me your opinion on the inclusions. Up until literally a few minutes ago, I was searching using the following criteria. I found this diamond as soon as I changed my criteria to include SI1, and it’s the one that has caught my eye the most so far.

The diamond will be paired with a round halo setting, in case that is helpful at all when answered regarding the inclusions.

Color: H-D

Clarity: VS2 – FL

Cut: Excellent – TH

Polish: VG-EX

Symmetry: VG-EX

Flour: Faint-None

Depth: 59 – 62.8%

Table: 53-59%



Thanks in advance for any advice you are able to give!

Thank you for your inquiry. I am happy to help. The diamond you selected from James Allen is an excellent choice. You can absolutely purchase this diamond with confidence.

It is eye-clean. It has excellent crown and pavilion angles, which are super important to maximize light reflection. And a G color is a very white diamond.

Please let me know if you have any other questions!

Thanks so much for your response! If you don’t mind, I do have one more question. When I originally sent my question, I thought the feather was the black speck in the middle of the diamond, since only a feather is listed on the GIA certificate.

I now realized the feathers are very near or on the girdle in the 3 o clock and 6 o clock positions. Is that something to be concerned about? Everything I’ve read online says to avoid a feather on the girdle.

I was really hoping this diamond would be the one, and I have to make the purchase by the end of the day today, but I don’t want to choose something too risky.

Hello, I apologize for my delayed response. You do not need to be concerned about the feather. 🙂
