Is it round? And who did the certification? GIA?

It looks like it would be the same price on Jamesallen, so its a good deal. Personally I would go a little lower in clarity (to VS2) and a little higher in color. But I don’t like as much warmth. You have faint fluorescence though, which will even out the color in a lot of lighting. A lot of it is personal taste.

@RDH0513:  If you like warmth then an I should be a good fit. There are a couple threads on here where you can look at warmer diamonds in other peoples rings. Its just not something I like.

Hi- I have mentioned this to other Bees, but you really should post on this message board:

There is also something known as the Holloway Cut Advisor…it is a tool to weeding out THE BEST diamonds online and uses the stone’s reported measurements to tell you how it fairs:

IMO, I would definitely go lower on the clarity scale, as long as the diamond is EYE CLEAN- why the heck pay more for it?  Either opt to save money or go up in color/carat. I prefer jamesallen because you can actually SEE the diamond you are buying.

@RDH0513:  hahaha I learned from the best! But seriously, we bought our diamond before I knew about the HCA tool, it was okay bcuz we bought it preowned so I saw it in person BUT if someone had told me about it in the beginning, I definitely would have checked the tool first! Hopefully, they will help you out and link some other diamonds for you!

I would drop down in clarity and go up in color, OR if you like the color, go up in size. Or drop down in clarity and save money! Why pay more if it is eye clean?
