So here's my dilema - I've notice a few perks and discounts lingering through BlueNile's site and want to make my mental selection now and wait within the next few weeks (and for my girlfriend to be out of town) to pull the trigger.
Cut is my highest priorty in reviewing details and in-person selections. However, I'm having a hard time commiting to one diamond.
I would love some feedback in the selections I've gathered so far...
1.) I have chosen option 1 in my head - 'signtaure ideal' that appears to have great 'optical brillance' - I realize it's among the top options, but does it justfied the next bracket of $$$?
2.) Does 'signature idea' provide enough bang to stay in that filtered selection choice - or do the statistics of these 'very goods' compete?
3.) My goal is a complete set (with band) for around $4-$5k.
BlueNile Option 1:
Princess .81ct E / VS1 Signature Ideal
Stock #: LD02492972
GIA & GCAL seem to show great stats
BlueNile Option 2:
Princess .81ct F / VS1 Very Good
Stock #: LD02429919
BlueNile Option 3:
Princess .81ct H / VvS1 Very Good
Stock #: LD02346403
BlueNile Option 4:
Princess .89ct D / VS2 Very Good
Stock #: LD02623123
Large size for similar $$$?
BlueNile Option 5:
Princess .94ct G / VS2 Very Good
Stock #: LD02623130
Biggest in terms of carat - while keeping at least very good with ex/ex
I would love other suggestions as well if there is another option (JA...etc) that I could see these stats online of other diamonds. Someone help me before I end up reading more into this... hahah
