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).

Take note of this diamond's girdle description - "TN/STK " - if you're unsure about girdles, try reading my short explanation of girdle thicknesses. While not quite as perfect a cut as Hearts & Arrows, the Ideal cut of this diamond results in it being significantly cheaper, because you're not paying a premium for a "perfectly" cut diamond. If you're a careful online buyer, this VS2 clarity diamond is a good safe option, because it is unlikely to have any inclusions that are visible to the naked eye. This diamond's $2930 cost is a major chunk of money for many people, but the tradeoff is a nicer and bigger stone than if you were to only spend a few hundred bucks.
