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 chance in color between any adjacent colors from the D-E-F color range can only be detected in a specialist laboratory environment, meaning this F color diamond is not distinguishable from diamonds rated only one color grade differently. Although not quite as perfect a cut as Hearts & Arrows, the Ideal cut of this diamond means it is significantly cheaper, because you're not forking out money for a "perfectly" cut diamond. The girdle of this diamond ("Thin to slightly thick") has an influence on the overall diamond; don't ignore it completely. If you're a cautious online buyer, then this VS2 clarity diamond is relatively safe bet, because the chances are low of it having any inclusions that can be seen by the naked eye.

Spending only $1990 on the diamond, one will be able to save more money to put towards other costs, for example a wedding reception. If you are looking at this diamond and thinking to yourself that you want to improve other characteristics of the diamond which don't affect size, think about downgrading the 0.63 carat weight for this diamond to achieve that end.
