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).

The H color of this diamond offers great value, as it is not a member of the expensive premium color grades D-F. This diamond's pricetag of $1350 puts it firmly a member of the least expensive group of stones which might be used in an engagement ring setting. The cut rating for this diamond (Premium) has it right in the middle of the road between quality of cut and cheapness of diamond. The Girdle Thickness of this diamond is "Slightly thick to thick" - you can consult my article on diamond girdles if you are interested in finding out more concerning how girdle thickness can play an important role. The size of this stone is 0.60 carats - but make sure you look for the other diamonds for sale with that same 0.60 weight which may have a more desirable combination of properties and price.

I never worry about diets. The only carrots that interest me are the number of carats in a diamond. Mae West .
