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).

Searching for a 2.02 Carat F Color VS1 Clarity Premium Cut Round Cut Diamond?

This VS1 clarity diamond is a slight improvement over a VS2 clarity diamond, the step up in clarity grading comes from there being smaller or less inclusions, or because the inclusion is positioned such that it is more favourable to the presentation of the diamond (for example if it is hidden from sight).

The visual appearance of this diamond will be good due to its Premium cut, although inferior to the more costly higher-rated cut grades. VS means Very Slightly Included - this VS1 clarity diamond contains some minor inclusions that might or might not be easy to see under 10x magnification, but rarely visible using just the naked eye - however it can occur sometimes. Consider if you are really set on the 2.02 carat weight that this diamond is - or whether you are able to extend a bit more to buy a larger stone.

This diamond's girdle ("Medium to thick") has an effect on the diamond, and should not be neglected entirely. F color diamonds are virtually colorless, meaning they are part of the pure white diamond range. For $31990, you should be getting a nice stone, so make sure you're plenty critical as you look at this diamond.
