    great, thanks a lot! I really gained lots of knowledge from this website particularly from Davide and Neil!!! It was not easy to finally find the diamond that satisfy me. I am very happy with this one compared to the Leo that we returned before. Unlike Leo, this one is really sparkle as I can't really see the inside from the table as it sparks so much. now i know what brilliance means and how brilliance looks like. but the price is doubled thou . Also the article about Tolkowsky that Davide posted, that's really great. I read and read again and again and I really used that as my base in purchase, particularly the angle pavilion degree. It took me more than 1 month to finally settle with this one. I tried to soak this ring in dish soap with warm water. I dont know if it is necessary or will make a difference. any thought? but i read so many articles and this is what they recommend.

    Hej Davide, I want to thank you a lot as you have helped me through this purchases by giving me lots of knowledge. I ended up getting the VS1. I looked at the pictures again in large size...and saw so many bumps. I think it is probably the picture effects cuz it is definitely eye clean and not that bumpies. What do you think? Again Tack!

    one of the stones (VS2) said: "clarity grade of this diamond is based on clouds that are not shown". What is this really mean? Anything to be concern just from this remark? does it mean that this diamond could have been VS1? thanks.

    That's what I thought and that's my preference as well. I'll wait to see how the inspection results come up in determining the inclusions. Thanks a lot!

    thanks. so the diamond market actually emphasize more on the color than the carat weight at least it is what is shown in the price. correct? i am still undecided on the ring setting. I want 18K a yellow gold band with platinum prong. One website that I originally thought would buy from was $375. Then I am looking at these current diamonds and would like to have the mounting done in one place (buy both diamond and ring setting), but the setting is expensive about $550 + $150 upgrade to platinum prong = $700 vs $375. If it is really better quality then I don’t mind paying for it. otherwise just waste of money. then it is convenient as I were to buy the stone from them. If I bring it to my local jewelry, not sure how much the setting cost, which at the end would not save much. What do you think?

    they both are AGS certified. btw they both are triple ideal in cut, polish and symmetry. i am not sure about the inclusions as they are checking/inspecting it for me at the moment. but from the plot, it is pretty much same. i know we can't just rely on the plot. the price is actually $200 lower for the G color. they both are around $9.5K. do you think the price is reasonable? btw they both are H&A.

    Thanks. just from the specs/measurement below (ignore the inclusions for a moment), which one would you think better? thanks again. based on my personal review, they both are pretty much the same. it is now my preference whether i want a bigger diamond and sacrificing the color. Do you think G and I color will really make a difference? what is HCA rating btw? Stone#1: 1.1 carat, G color, VS2, Depth 62.3%, Table 55%, 6.59x6.62x4.11, HCA 1.6 EX, crown 34.9, pavillion 40.8 Stone#2: 1.24 carat, I color, VS1, Depth 61.7%, Table 55%, 6.89x6.92x4.26, HCA 1.2 EX, crown 34.4, pavillion 40.8

    Other than the service and warranty, may it appear different between 2 ring setting (same 18K gold and same model e.g. comfort fit) due to the way they make it? I hope it will since the price is way more expensive compared to the other? in terms of the prong setting, i prefer platinum but does it really make a difference between white gold vs. platinum prong setting? i heard platinum is stronger and most likely the diamond will not fall out the prong? is that true?

    In regards to the ring setting, i noticed some vendor has lower price than others e.g. $375 compared to $630 for 18K gold 2.5 mm...does that mean that they have different quality? or it is just the profit margin.
