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 G color of this diamond offers great value, as it is not one of the expensive premium color grades D-F. Think about whether you're entirely set on the 0.52 carat weight that this diamond is - perhaps you can extend a bit more to get a slightly larger stone. If you are a cautious online purchaser, then this VS2 clarity diamond is relatively safe bet, because the chances are low of it having any inclusions that are visible to the naked eye. For a diamond, a price of $1400 really places it amongst the lowest price group of diamonds, especially for engagement rings.
