Well it certainly looks good but since this is my first purchase I won't know until I receive my item I have purchased from other well known gem dealers and I am strictly an amateur . I just know what I want when I want it and I was delighted at finding the gem I was looking for and it is so beautiful in person I'm just thrilled!
