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).

1.85 Carat F Color VS1 Clarity Ideal Cut Round Cut Diamond

F color VS1 clarity - what else could you want? I don't think so unless you're super fussy, although perhaps a lower price, as there will be an increased cost associated with getting these nice qualities found in this stone.

Weighing up the $28690 price of this diamond, make sure you consider whether any of the property qualities are excessive for your needs. The difference between any adjacent colors in the D-E-F range can only be detected in a specialist laboratory environment, meaning this F color diamond is indistinguishable when compared with diamonds rated only one color grade differently. If you are a careful online buyer, then this VS1 clarity diamond is a good safe option, because the chances are low of it having any inclusions that can be seen by the naked eye.

Many different diamond sellers will provide an Ideal cut rating of diamond, and these diamonds are usually (as is the case here) perfect with respect to proportions and the general shape.

If you're looking at this diamond and thinking to yourself that you want to improve other characteristics of the diamond not related to size, you may wish to reduce the 1.85 carat weight of this diamond. The girdle of this diamond ("Slightly thick") will have an effect on the overall diamond, and should not be neglected entirely.
