Is this a good diamond/ good deal?

Recommended Posts

I’m looking st buying a ring for my girlfriend and hopefully soon fiancé. The diamond bellow is the one I’m currently looking at, it’s priced at $28,660. It has a cloud in it, I’m wondering if that will impact its sparkle/ will it be noticeable to the naked eye?

I’ve been shopping around at most of the big stores. This one is from Nordstrom’s. I’ll continue to shop but what I’ve found on bluenile (I’m sure there are other online stores out there with better prices) is similar to with what I have found in brick and mortar stores. 

Is there an online retailer that is better than others? I feel hesitant spending so much online with out knowing the store’s reputation.

It depends a bit on what you mean by "better".

Blue Nile is the largest; James Allen has typically more information on the stones it sells; B2C is usually very aggressive on price. All three are large and somewhat anonymous and don't provide the personal attention and level of service that others can give - sometimes with an emphasis on "extreme" cut quality (e.g. Brian Gavin, Whiteflash), others on advice and "good, old fashioned" customer service (e.g. Diamond Ideals, Excel Diamonds and even - erm - us at Diamonds by Lauren). These are the first half dozen US-based names that come to mind - not an exclusive list or even an endorsement. Many of these are active on this forum, as are or were other perfectly reliable and honest dealers.
