Diamondbistro.com! And definitely head over to the forums at pricescope.com. There are great members there who would LOVE to help you find the perfect stone! They’re just people who love and are super knowledgable about diamonds.

I’d only go to JbEG, GOG, or OWD. Contact them directly for what you want. They’ll bend over backwards for you and call in stones to evaluate. I went with GOG, but almost went with JbEG. The JbEG ladies are super amazing.

 

What specifically are you looking for?

IMO Brilliant Earth is way over priced. I just checked out their site. Some of their “antique” rings have modern diamonds in them.

You have the top vendors there for old cut diamonds. 

I’d personally stick with jewels by erica grace or old world diamonds. Email OWD directly they have much better selection in the back and better pricing too than what is on the website… especially if you are not color sensitive.

CALL these vendors – do not just look online! I know JBEG has a TON of stones coming down the pipe. OWD has a billion they haven’t posted. GOG can find them for you. I know JBEG is good at answering emails but have never gotten any emails back from OWD and have never tried contacting GOG. So pick one and call. OWD will have the best pricing, so I’d probably try them first.

@peonyinlove:  “around 1 carat”

Be sure to specify a millimeter size. Some OECs etc can face up differently than round brilliants, so if you’re thinking you like the visual size of 1 ct, specify that you’re looking for around 6.5mm round. If you just like the weight point, then ignore this. Especially with OMCs though they sometimes have such tall crowns that they are very deep/small-faced for the carat weight.
