My ring was a simple $500. But Tiffanys and Co has pretty ones for over $10k.

@yasssk:  Have you gone to try some on yet?  If you haven’t I would advise you to.  What you may like in pictures you may not like on your finger.  Personally, I would try on all different kinds of settings, take pictures and give yourself the time to decide which one you like the best. 🙂

If you are getting a large stone, buying wholesale is going to get you the biggest for your money, whereas some of the retailers will charge so much and not give you a variety nor can they explain options for shape and optical sparkle.

 

You have a healthy budget, and I think as long as you want a square, leave it open to square cushion, princess, or radiant.  Sometimes diamond suppliers say they don’t have something and it prevents them from thinking outside the box.  I wanted a radiant originally and we settled on an oval which looked 1mm bigger all the way around!  Plus we went from a J color to an E color because the shape was less popular at the time.

 

If you are in NYC I can give you wholesalers that aren’t sharks…but if you want the stone shipped to you I also know places like where my friend Dinesh works at Justice of the Peace Diamonds where they usually do phone and internet orders and he has amazing mountings and catalogues or can custom make the ring itself.  Best of luck.

also you need to see photos/videos/or the stone in person.  The table, depth, and fire on each diamond will be completely cut with different styles unless you get a brellia hearts and arrows cushion or a special princess of hearts diamond.  a lot of large diamonds are cut heavy to keep the ct weight, and many 1.80ct look bigger than 2.00ct.  You need great advice…go to Good Old Gold.  But I have had some great diamond experiences and some ones I walked away from because I’ve hung around the district in NY for years.  Some people you cannot work with and they think you are gullible if you are not a tradesman.

@Sofiebee:  I Pmed u so hopefully that helps.  if you don’t find stuff on 47th street you can always contact Good Old Gold.  Its a trip, but its really cool to go there.  You pay for their expertise but you get a great stone.
