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 girdle ("Thin to medium") has an effect on the diamond, and should not be neglected entirely. If you're checking out this diamond and thinking to yourself that you want to improve another property of the diamond which don't affect size, think about downgrading the 1.32 carat weight of this diamond. Usually VS2 clarity diamonds are the most affordable "safe" clarity rating for purchasing online without a photo - you can go to a lower clarity grading but then you need to see a good quality photo showing the diamond to assess the inclusions for yourself. F color diamonds are pretty much colorless, meaning they are included in the pure white diamond range. The Ideal cut ensures the diamond will sparkle significantly more than lower cut quality diamonds, maximizing attractiveness.
