Is this from a jeweler? Or somehwere else? I suggest going on bluenile or adiamor to compare. The fact that it is an I1 makes me wary…

@MASPA: Local jeweler, but i have seen the diamond and i did not notice any of the inclusions (when not under 20x? lupe) and it really is much nicer than almost all the other stones I saw from other jewelers
He graded it a SI2 D color (GIA says I1 E color)

I voted yes but I meant no….only because of the I1…depends if you can see the inclusions or not 🙁

An I1?? My cousin just got engaged w/ an F, VS1 .92 round and it cost just under 4k. Not sure I’d do an I1.

@GelaMac: Even after inspecting the diamond and having the GIA report map the inclusions (which look bad on the report) i had a tough time finding them
I should be able to get the price to 2700-2900
Still not worth it?

I think that sounds like a good price, if you can’t see the inclusions!
Check out jamesallen.com and look for a similar size/clarity/colour etc and see what their prices are.

I voted no because the clarity grade is below my threshold. I did a quick search on bluenile and similar diamonds in the SI2 clarity are about $3,500. I’d want to see the I and teh SI2 side by side to see if the difference is worth that much money.

I’d be worried more about the “good” cut than the I1 to be honest.

@yellowshoe: thats just it thought im trying to keep the price ~4k and have a $790 platinum band 4 prong setting
Post # 12
no. for that size and with the I1 clarity, no. you can do better.

That sounds pretty high to me, but I’m cheap haha. An I1 isn’t bad–that’s what mine is and it’s eye clean. No one’s going to be looking at it with a loupe ever.

@KeithT: Honestly, it just matters if you like it. The price seems reasonable to me, but I would be turned off by the clarity and cut. You seem happy with how it looked in person though and taht’s what matters. I would just suggest comparing it side by side with maybe a smaller carat weight, higher quality and cut grading to keep it in your price range.

@yellowshoe: i agree and i know i can get a good price because they offere it at 3100 and it came back less than what they graded it in two categories….that being said im not looking for a deal im looking for the best diamond possible
i am going to go back again today and REALLY inspect the stone and if i can’t find the inclusions with my eyes, noone wil bc noone else will have the map!
