Quick and Easy Buying Guide

Carat weight: 1 carat = 200 milligrams = 6.5 mm diameter. Doubling weight doesn't double diameter.

Diamond clarity: FL/IF/VVS/VS = super expensive, near perfect. SI = best value if you can check a photo for obvious inclusions (defects).


Color: D-G = colorless, expensive, only if you have money to burn. H-J = best value. Can go lower in gold metal settings than white metal.

Cut: Better cut ratings let more light into a diamond, making it sparkle more. Very important property, don't skimp here.

Set a budget and minimum cut (Premium). Go J color for gold and I/H for white metals. Go searching for SI1/SI2 clarity diamonds at James Allen. Pick a diamond with small/no inclusions. Choose a ring setting and buy it risk-free (60-day returns).

This diamond's girdle is "Medium to thick, faceted", which can have a impact on the size and sparkle of a diamond, as explained in my diamond girdle page.

F color diamonds are virtually colorless, meaning they are included in the pure white group of diamonds. Because this diamond is a Premium cut diamond, it offers fantastic value for money, since it doesn't attract the price tag added to the higher cut gradings, despite still providing decent optical performance.
