Which Diamond To Choose??

Recommended Posts

Hi Experts,

Need some advice on where to buy a round 1 ct diamond in H-I color and VS2+ clarity.

I have chosen some from blue nile , can you take a look?

Would you recommend Briangavin, i like their stones but they are at premium.

 

here the diamonds i shortlisted :

 

1.02 I VS2 : GIA Report : 6167565308 

 

1.01 I VS2 GIA Report : 2186571725  

 

1.01 VS2 GIA Report :7178401006

 

Thanks for your help.

 

Cheers

1.02 I VS2 : GIA Report : 6167565308 - Excellent Cut

1.01 I VS2 GIA Report : 2186571725  - Ideal Cut (not perfect, not super ideal)

1.01 VS2 GIA Report :7178401006 -  Very poorly cut

 

These are my opinions on these diamonds and their "make/cut quality."

 

What are the asking prices on these diamonds?

Thanks Joshua,

 

first one is priced 5400, second one at 5700 and third at 5900.

Do you think an I , VS2 with excellent cut is good enough.

Will I color on a GIA graded diamond show any yellow  ? there was another thread on the forum where a F color was also being discussed for yellow color.

 

I like the additional details from BG which are unavailable from BN so was wondering how best to choose without ASET and idealscope images.

 

I have just read stuff online and a novice at it.

Thanks for your help.

I personally never sell diamonds that I only consider excellent to my clients (company policy is to only recommend ideal and super ideal diamonds).

 

When we work with clients we only sell diamonds that face up white or slightly off white. Its important to work with a reputable diamond dealer and jeweler, who will protect you from diamonds that dont face up white. I recommend GIA diamonds that face up white from D-J color. Cut quality plays a major role in this. 

 

Id say option #2 is your best bet if choosing between the three. The third option goes to show you that pricing is indiscriminate of cut. 

 

The AGA cut grade chart is a really helpful tool to help you shop without ASET and IdealScope images, I cant share a link to it because of forum rules but you should google search "aga cut grade chart" and you will find the chart.
