    Is this from a jeweler?  Or somehwere else?  I suggest going on bluenile or adiamor to compare.  The fact that it is an I1 makes me wary…

    I voted yes but I meant no….only because of the I1…depends if you can see the inclusions or not 🙁

    An I1?? My cousin just got engaged w/ an F, VS1 .92 round and it cost just under 4k. Not sure I’d do an I1.

    I think that sounds like a good price, if you can’t see the inclusions! 

    Check out jamesallen.com and look for a similar size/clarity/colour etc and see what their prices are.

    I voted no because the clarity grade is below my threshold. I did a quick search on bluenile and similar diamonds in the SI2 clarity are about $3,500. I’d want to see the I and teh SI2 side by side to see if the difference is worth that much money.

    I’d be worried more about the “good” cut than the I1 to be honest.

    no.  for that size and with the I1 clarity, no.  you can do better.

    That sounds pretty high to me, but I’m cheap haha. An I1 isn’t bad–that’s what mine is and it’s eye clean. No one’s going to be looking at it with a loupe ever.

    @KeithT:  Honestly, it just matters if you like it. The price seems reasonable to me, but I would be turned off by the clarity and cut. You seem happy with how it looked in person though and taht’s what matters. I would just suggest comparing it side by side with maybe a smaller carat weight, higher quality and cut grading to keep it in your price range.
