hello!
i normally dont post to forums but this is special case, and ive seen the great advice many of you have given and would appreciate the same :)
 
i need some help deciphering the vast amount of information that goes into online diamond shopping. Its hard to not see it and see how it sparkles. To solely base a decision on certifications, numbers, and conversions etc... is a bit unwelcoming for me.
 
i understand briandavin, bluenile, and whiteflash, but already have the setting from shane co and want to go through them again to have a B&M store to frequent, and for their warranty.
 
 
i already have the setting with a .4 carat S1 H princess diamond in it from the shane co. i want to add a bigger/new diamond in it and want to use shane cos trade in program to do so. thats why i chose shane co.. also im strictly online because i live in socal now temporarily and there is no shane co nearby
 
however about the diamonds which is the crucial info, here is the details on table, crown and depth.

Here are some, including a few hand shots:

This said, I'm not sure how useful they would be... since the appearance can change a lot based on the setting and the proportions of the hand (the lady on whose hand these were taken has very small hands, and the size 6 ring looks rather big on her!).
