    I went with color because I fell in love with morganite as soon as I saw it on this site.  Most people will probably think I picked it for cost, but I love the color! 😀

    @AquariusLove:  When it comes to diamonds, CUT is by far the most important- unless you’re super color sensitive.  I have seen absolutely beautiful I1 diamonds with ideal cuts- sparkle wonderfully.  Yes, you could see a tiny carbon spot. but it was way more beautful than a clear diamond with a crap cut in comparison.  Obvioulsy, to each thier own.  But the attraction to diamonds in the first place is the sparkle– so I’ve never understand why some women would rather have a 3 carat salt rock vs a 1 carat sparkler LOL

    I hate when women complain about clarity- nobody but you looks at your ring close enough to know the difference!

    Cut and Carat.  Those are the two main things people notice anyway.

    Cut and Clarity.
    When my FI and I were looking at rings, we were shown this terrible 1 carat ring that looked like it just had sand in it. There was so much inclusions in it and there was no sparkle.

    @AquariusLove:  Keep in mind an ideal or excellent cut of a smaller carat is going to, in many cases, appear larger than a poorly cut stone.

    @AquariusLove:  Carat. If I had the money, I’d be a total size queen. Unless it has some crazy visible flaw, you can usually only see the clarity stuff under a loupe, which the average person you meet on the street doesn’t have.

    @AquariusLove:  Cut! I love a good sparkle 😀 My blue diamond is fairly small, cheap, and has small chunks of coal in it (its ‘freckles’) — but the cut is amazing so it sparkles like mad.

    Cut is most important to me! It’s why I just couldn’t get a moissy that I liked. I have a GIA XXX stone now, but I’d really love to order to Amora Gem to compare.

    I’d list the C’s in order of importance to me as: cut, cost, clarity, carat, colour. I like warmer diamonds so colour works out in my favour.

    If I were to have gotten a diamond ring (mine is a sapphire), I would have wanted a canary diamond, so for me it would be color!
