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).

Consider whether you're entirely set on the 1.72 carat weight that this diamond is - or whether you can stretch to get a larger diamond. The Girdle Thickness for this diamond is "Slightly thick" - I suggest consulting my article on girdle thickness if you want to find out more concerning how girdle thickness can play an important role. VS is an abbreviation for Very Slightly Included - this VS2 clarity diamond has some minor inclusions that may or may not be visible under 10x magnification, but almost never visible with the naked eye - although it can happen sometimes. This diamond's Ideal cut rating means it has very good proportions and very good or better symmetry and polish ratings. For $16840, you should be getting a nice stone; ensure that you are harsh in your judgement as you look at this stone.
