My Fiance (who recently researched such things, haha) said there wouldn’t be a big difference for side stones.

TBH I don’t think it makes much of a difference, but Im with the previous poster, how big are these side diamonds? I feel if they are small like the ones in my ring then I don’t think it would matter since they’re so tiny, but if they were bigger then I think it would matter.

I’m thinking the small diamonds in my ring are a SI1 if I remember correctly, but I cant remember.

I don’t think it matters hardly at all, honestly.

@Wanderlusty:  Then I don’t think it really matters. I mean honestly no one has whipped out loupes to look at the clarity of the tiny diamonds on the side of my ring b/c they just sparkle!

@Wanderlusty:  You mean .05 right?

I don’t think you’ll be able to tell, but if you get a “dark” one, you can always have it switched out!

I have six little, incredibly tiny diamond chips on the side of my ring and I don’t even know what quality they are! I know they aren’t of the utmost quality based on the price of my ring and that they’re a little dark, but they’re just there for sparkle — I don’t think it matters that much.

@Wanderlusty:  Ahh, I thought you were referring to each side diamond and I was like….dayum girl, .5 side stones are nothing to be blasé about!  Haha.

The diamonds in my halo setting are G color and SI1 clarity to match my center stone. They are honestly so small you would not be able to tell a difference and I can’t imagine they could sparkle MORE if the clarity was just slightly higher.
