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 Ideal cut means the diamond will shine significantly more in comparison to lower quality cut diamonds, optimizing attractiveness. F color diamonds are known as colorless diamonds, amongst the purest white diamonds you can get. Girdle thickness (for this diamond the girdle is "Thin to slightly thick") can play an important role in the size presented by the diamond, as is explained in my girdle thickness article.

Typically VS1 clarity diamonds are the best value "safe" clarity rating for purchasing online without seeing the diamond - you can go to a lower clarity grading but then you need to see a good quality photo of the diamond to analyze the inclusions for yourself. Think about if you're entirely set on the 1.75 carat weight of this diamond - or whether you can extend a bit more for a larger rock.
