My diamond is a VVS2. Anything VS2 and up wohld be eye clean. Dont spend the premium for an IF/F diamond. Focus more on the cut and color. Those will definitely be more noticeable.
If he is insistant of going for an IF diamond then check out all the online retailers. They get their diamonds from the same source so sometimes you can find the same exact diamond (same GIA number) on multiple websites and price match.
FWIW I have a VS2 and have yet to be able to see anything in it, even when magnified.
That being said, everyone has their own preferences, so if at the end of the day, IF is what you want, go for it! It’s no money out of my pocket (or anyone else’s here), so choose what you love. 🤗
All you bees on here are fancy smanshy with your VS, VVS or VVVVS diamonds lol!
Just kidding….any who. I have a S1 and honestly I can’t even find the little speck unless I am looking at it from the side and look in between the prongs. The clarity was always the least of my concerns because as my diamond is an excellent cut and E in color, it’s so sparkly and beautiful. I don’t care at all that there’s a little speck of mother earth inside my diamond.
Tell your SO to stop worrying about that so much. Just get something YOU will enjoy and love.
When I have been looking, I search for .95-2, D E or F, ideal or very good and VVS2 or better.
I sent him the link for the one diamond and his response was they don’t have the setting he is looking for. Whatever his idea is, it has to be that.
He usually is very good at know my taste and buying things I love, without me even knowing what I want. So I am trying to trust him, but this is a forever thing. I want it to be a good value and fit us.
If he wants something sparkly and visually perfect then why not get a moissy? PLUS you could save a shit ton of money and take a nice trip.
* I don’t own one but the ones I’ve seen around here are super pretty.
I think it might be hard to find 1.4 carat in IF DEF and Ex cut ya know for $10k, but maybe I just glanced and saw the site had quite a few. OMGosh I just got a 1.02 carat, VS2 F colored Pear and I LOVE IT I too wear a size 7. I do know there is an inclusion in mine, but pears hide them rather well and I too am very sensitive to inclusions, but mine doesn’t bother me at all because it is sooooooo sparkly! Jamesallen had a good about of ovals did you see them? Good prices too. Ahhh I love my pear lol.
So you have a round already, did Fiance get it for you? Is this one an upgrade or is your round just a previous ring you have? Would you mind sharing a pic of your .75 round since we have the same size finger? If not no worries. I want a alternate ring one day and I want a 2 carat moissanite, but I tried on this really pretty .50 carat super beautiful round with rose gold and loved it. Even on my giant man hands LOL
