Ooh, lucky lady!

Personally, as long as I can see the SI1 before I buy it, and as long as it is eye-clean, I would say to go for the 1.25 carat. There isn’t too much of a difference between an F and G coloured diamond usually (I had a J colour diamond, ideal cut, for my first e-ring and I swear to God I could BARELY see any yellow, and I’m pretty colour sensitive). And as long as it’s an ideal cut, the colour and clarity will be partially masked.

And I’m glad Fiance is doing his homework! I hate going into jewelry stores and seeing uneducated FIs getting conned into buying horrible diamonds by sales reps. I see it happen almost every time I step foot into one.

Happy shopping!

Go for the bigger one if it’s around the same price! Unless a person is trained and under a microscope at a 10x zoom, they won’t able to tell the difference between f and g and vs2 and SI1. (I’m sure you’ll get a view bees telling you otherwise) but I’m just telling you from my experience. Congrats girl! I bet you’re over the moon!

@she_might_be_modern: Firstly congratulations!

Secondly I spoke to a Jeweller last week  (family run business for over 100 years with an outstanding reputation) he said he would go with a lower clarity for a greater carat. He actually recommended the SI2 or SI1. A G is a great colour, I have been looking at rings for the past few months and most of them have been a G and there is honestly not much difference between a G and a D unless you put them side by side – even then it is minute.  So with thoes specifications I would go for the 1.25ct πŸ™‚ that is a fantastic size diamond if you ask me πŸ™‚
