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).

Several diamond sellers will provide an Ideal cut diamond cut grading, and these diamonds are usually (as is the case here) perfect in terms of proportions and the general shape. VS means Very Slightly Included - this VS2 clarity diamond has some smaller inclusions that might or might not be easy to see at 10x magnification, but almost never visible with the naked eye - although it can happen sometimes. The size of this stone is 0.61 carats - but make sure you check out the other diamonds for sale with a similar 0.61 weight which might have a more desirable combination of properties and price. The difference between any neighbouring colors from the D-E-F range can only be detected in a specialist laboratory environment, with the significance that this F color diamond is not distinguishable from diamonds rated one color either side of it. For a pricetag of $2080, this diamond is firmly within the normal range of diamonds bought for diamond engagement ring settings.

The Girdle Thickness of this stone is "Thin to medium" - you can consult my article on girdle thickness if you are interested in finding out more about how girdle thickness can play an important role.
