In the process of buying my first lab diamond here and the vendor sent me the below video, hopefully the link works.

My main concerns are how do you know if the cut is good and how would you know if it has the dreaded bow tie I’ve been reading so much about for ovals? What am I even supposed to be looking for on this video?

I’d very much appreciate anyone’s thoughts and input!

The dark area in the central region is a bow tie.

Dealers who can give you ASET images will show up as blue in that region.

There is a lot of unbiased educational material on this site.

All retailers can choose to buy from dealers who provide this type of information.

The more people (and therefore retailers) request it - the more pressure there is for diamond cutters to produce better looking diamonds.
