chitownyogini :  Right now their largest round white diamonds which are not drilled are 3/4 carat. They did have some 1 carat and 7/8th carat available as part of a necklace but those sold out quickly. They also did have 1 carat white cushion cuts and do have 1 carat white princess cuts.

I believe the limited supply of non drilled white 1 carats is intentional – they also don’t want to crowd out demand for natural diamond engagement rings. This is likely why they don’t offer 1 carat engagement-ring-like solitaires in 14k gold.

DoeEyes :  Wow!! Your set is absolutely gorgeous! And on your small finger the .88 looks huge! Thank you for sharing pics ๐Ÿ˜ the plus side of purchasing such affordable rings is that you get to keep both!

Thanks! I must have missed it. 7/8th carat is almost indestinguishable from 1 carat by itself. I’m glad you were able to get your dream ring at such a reasonable price.

I agree – or another seller of lab diamonds will drop their prices.

DoeEyes :  is the 1 1/8th princess drilled? How do you know which ones are drilled and which aren’t?

 Are the 1 carat stones in a pendant drilled? Which diamonds are drilled?

DoeEyes :  I’d love pink diamond earrings of 2ctw. I’d take two necklaces and reset the diamonds into studs. But you cant buy two necklaces, they seem to be out of pink every time I’m there and I don’t want to pay $900 for a diamond with a hole in it!

Thank you! I waffle back and forth on lab diamonds but I’ll have a look at those.

sunburn :  Welcome! It seems they have a return policy, but buying to only end up returning would still be a pain. You could probably check out Pricescope for non-stock photos. I understand the hesitation though given the uncertainty over the market for lab diamonds.

DoeEyes :  ok so just spent my day looking at Lightbox diamonds and reading up on them ha ha! 

does anyone have any measurements for them

DoeEyes :  did you have your .88 measured. I have a .72 mined but I am looking at the 1 1/8th princess. I know they face up a bit smaller than rounds so wondering would there be much between them? Anyone know if I can get the mm’s size anywhere? Should it be roughly the same size as a mined 1 1/8th diamond?
