Hi Everyone- time for a contest maybe??

What the helk- let's go for it!!














Above is one of our newest Radiant Cut diamonds.
As I write this, the diamond is over at GIA getting a full report.
HINTS:
this is a larger stone.......
The GIA may add a modifying color ( of course we don't know what GIA will say....but this is my hunch-unless I'm mistaken)

Here's the contest:
1) Guess the weight
2) Guess the color

Prizes:
Guess the weight
The closest 3 guesses for weight get a $50 Diamonds by Lauren Gift certificate ( actually we credit your DBL account to save paper)
Guess the weight exactly? $100 DBL store credit- as many as guess exactly will get the $100 credit

Guess the color:
Closest guess here wins a $50 DBL store credit. Guess the color exactly? $100 Store credit
As many guess the exact GIA color will win the $100
Now, since this is more subjective than a simple number, we may have to do some "judging" here. In the event that one guesses exactly, and two people are deemed to have guesses "closest" to the color, we will have a "runoff"- a mini contest to determine the winner.

Guess BOTH weight, AND color exactly? Win a $250 DBL Store credit.

Rules: Contest is open to any CDi member ( aside from mods)
One guess per person.
No editing the guesses- but to get things rolling, the first five that enter may place a subsequent guess . We don't want to punish those that enter early.

Void where prohibited
Contest starts now and runs through midnight July 10th 2008
Mods- please look this over and add any rules I've forgotten.....

Because David already told me the weight and his colour guess, so I don't think it would be fair...

Lest anyone should think I'm privy to special information, I have to add that it's because this one came from the same cutter as the light green square radiant I have bought, and David mentioned both stones in a mail answering a question I had.

I'll go for 5.03ct of fancy yellowish brown (does such a thing exist??)

It's a very attractive stone.

Hmmmm . . . judging by the majority of the guesses so far, I must be quite low.

What's the working definition of a "boulder" as it relates to the size of a diamond?
