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).

The visual attractiveness of this diamond will be good because of its Premium cut, although not quite as good as the more expensive higher-rated cut grades. Despite the fact this VS2 clarity diamond will almost certaintly be "eye-clean", if you're looking to reduce expenditure, try checking out SI clarity diamonds. Try to find a diamond that is eye-clean in a photo or when viewed in person. Most consumers won't notice the color in this H color diamond, unless the stone is held up against a higher color grade diamond (for multistone rings this is important). For any diamond, a price of $1330 really places it amongst the lowest price group of diamonds, even more so in the context of engagement rings.
