  1. Thanks a ton davidelevi, this was exactly the advice i was looking for... firstdiamond
  2. Hello. I'm a first time diamond buyer. I'm in the process of buying 2 pairs of Diamond stud earring. One is for my mom and another is for my sister. My budget is 400 to 600 $ each. I'm based in the US. I read through the tutorial, which was very helpful for a novice btw, and have come up with some broad guidelines for myself. These are below. These are my broad assumptions. Cut for round brilliant cut/princess cut - Very Good or Good Color - always > K - i.e D,E,F,G,H,I,J - Nothing Else, Most Probably end up with F,G,H,I,J Clarity - always > I1 - i.e FL, IF, VVS1, VVS2, VS1, VS2, SI1, SI2, Most Probably end up with VS1, VS2, SI1, SI2 Carat - 0 - 0.75 I'm focusing on yellow gold since these are small diamonds and as i understand yellow backing 'pops' them better. Based on these guidelines i have narrowed down some of the selection available online to the ones that i'm interested in. These are the links to the shortlisted. Could you please advise on the option with the best value? I'm also open to looking at other options. I'm a little short of time i need to wrap this up in 2 weeks time. Never knew buying diamonds was such a sophisticated affair . Thanks in advance firstdiamond
