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).

Although 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. Make sure to cast a glance over nearby carat sizes around the 0.62 carat weight of this diamond, to see if any options regarding other diamond properties may open up. This diamond's ticket price of $1550 puts it firmly a member of the least expensive group of diamonds which might be used in an engagement ring setting.

SI stands for Slightly Included; that means this SI1 stone has inclusions which are definitely visible at 10 x magnification and possibly to the naked eye, but which provide the potential for bargains if they're not.

A G color diamond such as this one is a great compromise between extreme white pureness and money considerations. If you have got some dollars to spend but do not want to splurge unnecessarily, this is a great color range to do your searching within. The girdle of this diamond ("Thin to slightly thick") has an effect on the diamond, and should not be neglected entirely.
