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).

An untrained eye won't notice the color in this G color diamond, except if the stone is compared side by side with a diamond with say a D color rating (for multistone rings this is important). At a pricetag of $2290, this diamond is smack-bang within the middle range of diamonds being purchased for diamond engagement rings.

Despite the fact this VS1 clarity diamond will almost certaintly be "eye-clean", if you are looking to save some money, you should check out SI clarity diamonds. Try to find a diamond that appears eye-clean in a photo or when viewed in person. Place this 0.64 carat weight in the right reference frame as you consider your diamond options - there are for sure other stones in the same size range that might provide more with regards to their cost and properties.
