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).

This diamond's $2050 price is a substantial investment for many people, but it does lead to a nicer and bigger stone than if you were to only spend a few hundred bucks. If you are a cautious online purchaser, then this VS2 clarity diamond is a good safe option, because the chances are low of it having any inclusions that are visible to the naked eye. To the unassisted human eye, this F color diamond by itself appears completely white and pure - there isn't a method to detect any color in the diamond using just the human eye and no other nearby diamonds, or to identify the differences between it and others within the colorless range.

Although not quite as perfect a cut as Hearts & Arrows, the Ideal cut of this particular diamond means it is significantly cheaper, because you're not forking out money for a "perfectly" cut diamond. The carat weight of this diamond is 0.60 carats - but make sure you check out the other diamonds for sale with that same 0.60 weight which may have a more desirable combination of properties and price. This diamond has a girdle described as "Thin to slightly thick", which plays a impact on the shine and apparently width of the diamond, as written about in my diamond girdle article.
