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).

VS is an abbreviation for Very Slightly Included - this VS2 clarity diamond has some minor inclusions which may or may not be visible at 10x magnification, but are rarely visible using just the naked eye - however it can occur on the odd occasion. Pay attention to this diamond's girdle description - "Thin to slightly thick" - if you're unsure about girdles, go have a read of my short explanation of girdle thicknesses. While 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. This G color diamond is a whiter stone than the bottom normal color gradings of J and below, which means it's a a balance-point between quality and budget, enabling one to get more in the other Cs of diamonds such as carat size.
