Go for the quality over size. .83 is not a small stone and it will look just right on a size 6 finger.

I have a fancy intense yellow stone. Fancy yellow is still very very yellow.  Heck, Even the stones W-Z are still obviously yellow.  If your willing to drop color for size To ease your mind then do it.  The price difference between something rated Y-Z and fancy anything is substantial.

If you’re set on the color, then go for the smaller stone. It’s doubtful you will see a size difference in 8 points. If you end up wanting more finger coverage, put a halo on it!

I’m sure an intense yellow stone will have quite the presence, anyways. Make sure you put yellow gold prongs on it even if you have a white gold/platinum shank.

What cut are you looking at? Round brilliant, princess, cushion, oval, radiant etc…

@Wonderfully:  You should check out the www.truthaboutdiamonds.com  there is a lot of information on diamonds and yellow diamonds.  Also pricescope.com has a lot of information on yellow diamonds and how the setting and using yellow or white gold can make a fancy yellow look more like an intense yellow diamond.  Good luck.

Can you meet in the middle? I can never tell the difference between a VVS2 and a VS1….

2k more for a stone of the same specs and ridiculously minute size difference? I really doubt you could even tell these stones apart if they were side by side!

I’d go for the .83 carat, which yes, is a great size, and spend the 2k on something else!

I would definitely NOT go for a weaker yellow.
