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).

To the unassisted human eye, this F color diamond standing alone appears pure white - there isn't a method to detect any color in the diamond utilizing just the human eye and no other nearby diamonds, or to identify the differences between it and others within the colorless range. Several companies will offer an Ideal cut rating of diamond, and these diamonds are usually (as is the situation here) perfect in terms of proportions and the general shape. Pay attention to this diamond's girdle characteristic - "Thin to medium" - and if you don't know about girdle thickness, go have a read of my short explanation of girdle thicknesses.

Throwing $31740 towards a stone gets one a diamond well above the cut, such as this diamond. Just be sure that you and your partner are happy spending the money.
