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).

SI stands for Slightly Included; that means that this SI1 stone has inclusions that are definitely visible at a zoom level of ten times and possibly to the naked eye, but which offer the opportunity for significant price discounts if they're not. The size of this diamond is 0.76 carats - but make sure you check out the other diamonds for sale with a similar 0.76 weight which may have a more desirable combination of properties and price. A G color diamond such as this one is a great compromise between extreme white pureness and money considerations. If you've got some money but do not want to splurge unnecessarily, this is a sensible color range to look in. The Ideal cut means the diamond will sparkle significantly more in comparison to lower cut quality diamonds, optimizing attractiveness. To get some additional pointers on the "Medium to slightly thick" girdle for this diamond, have a read of the article I wrote on girdle thickness.

This diamond's $2540 price is a substantial chunk of money for a lot of people, but the tradeoff is a superior stone than if you spent a few hundred dollars.
