    Diamond Shapes & Colors

    I am currently looking for an engagement ring and I am torn between the round, oval and cushion cut stones. Do any of these cuts appear bigger than the other? I was once told a one carat cushion will appear bigger than a one carat round and a one carat oval will appear bigger than a one carat cushion. Not sure if this is true or not. Also, regarding color, I was wondering if a J color stone with a medium fluoresence will face up white in a white gold setting.

    Eternity Band

    I have a ring with 7 round diamonds (1.5 carats total) in it and I would like to turn it into an eternity band, or something similar. I once saw a setting that I liked, but I don't know what the type of setting is considered. No metal is visible around the diamonds. There are no prongs, it's not a channel setting, it's not pave. It literally looks like a string of diamonds around the finger. They also lay very flat against the finger. Any idea what this type of setting is called?

    Thank you for the information. I really appreciate it!

    Cushion Cut

    Is it true that this cut makes the diamond appear larger than was it is? I like the look of a 2 carat diamond, but that may be out of the budget (assuming I keep the clarity and color low). Are there any tricks for making a diamond appear larger than what it is?

    I was just wondering if anyone has purchased jewelery from MarkBroumand.com. He has gorgeous rings, but I am kind of skeptical of purchasing diamonds online.
