At first glance, this diamond sounds like an attractive purchase for a 1.20 carat diamond. However, you really have to look at what you are paying for.


Here's another diamond I want to show you in comparison to this one.


Grading report: GIA

Shape and Cutting Style: Princess (square modified brilliant)

Measurements: 5.75 x 5.72 x 3.99 mm

Weight: 1.04 carat

Depth: 69.8%

Table: 69%

Girdle: Medium

Culet: None

Polish: Very Good

Symmetry: Very Good

Clarity Grade: SI1

Color Grade: E

Fluorescence: None


The obvious difference you might think about is the carat weight, but look at the measurements of these 2 diamonds. The difference in length is five-hundreths of a millimeter, and the difference in width is one-hundredth of a millimeter.


The more important factor is that you upgrade on the quality to an E color and an SI1 clarity.


The price I found this diamond for is $4,442.


I hope this gives you a better comparison, but look at measurements before you decide to fork up extra money for a "larger" diamond that really isn't that much larger.

Wow Dweezie!!! That a better price and quality for the same size. Since Dweezie's diamond has a better cut, the weight is also distributed evenly making the diamond appear larger than its actual carat weight.


Why pay for extra weight?


I think you should reconsider and listen to Dweezie!
