I like slightly warm diamonds, so I would go H, VS2, Ideal or very good

Whatever you do PLEASE get an ideal cut. IMO the cut makes the biggest statement in a diamond.

Yes, get an Ideal cut if possible! For color, I’d go F or G, and for clarity, you can go VS2 or SI1 without seeing any visible inclusions (most of the time).

@tiffany.blue:  I would get G-H color. Honestly it’s so hard to tell the difference between the near-colorless/colorless grades, even if they’re side by side. On your hand no one will know if it’s an E or an H.

I’d go minimum VS1 or VS2 for clarity, and have it verified eye clean (ie not black carbon spots – that can still happen in the VS range, sadly).

Cut affects sparkle and is the most important of the 4Cs – I’d go with the best so excellent/ideal.

The diamond I want is H color, VVS1 or VVS2, and ideal cut.

I would also go for the best cut possible.  SI1 or better, and I would put color as my last priority (I would even go for a J with fluorescence).

I second what the PP say, but did want to note that if you are getting a warmer/less colourless center stone AND you want any kind of accent diamonds to make sure your accent diamonds are in the same range (within a letter). Otherwise, if you end up with an H diamond, for example, and you get F sidestones/halo, it will be noticeable.

Cut is the next most important.

After that it depends how color sensitive you are. I mean, first of all no one will ever notice this stuff but you, but if you really hata the thought of your diamond having any yellow in it, then color comes next. If you don’t mind a little color, but hate the thought of a spot or feather (inclusions) in your diamond, then clarity comes next.

Since you’re asking my opinion – color is more important to me than clarity.

Ideal cut. Probably around a G color and VS clarity.

Ideal cut, eye clean and warmer color.  I’m not a fan of D color diamonds, I love a bit of warmth.
