    For me it’s the cut because I love the sparkle factor.

    Clarity… with cut a close second. that’s how you make them super sparkly!

    Cut is supposed to be the most important factor; a poorly cut stone will always look smaller, darker, and less sparkly than an ideal cut one.

    No idea what mine are. I was given an estimate by a jeweller when I had my appraisal, but I don’t know how accurate it was. 

    I am getting another ring that’ll be set in yellow gold in the future and the priorities are cut and carat.

    Cut! Because cut determines sparkle:)

    Mine (if I remember now;it’s been almost 3 years since we bought it) is G color , excellant cut, 1.23c, and VSI.

    cut and carat!  I really wanted at least a 1 carat diamond but I also want it to spakle!

    I agree with Future Mrs K. My priorities were cut and carat. Cut was important to me for the sparkle, and carat was important because, TBH, that’s usually the first (and often only depending on how long/closely I look) thing I notice about a ring. I wanted eye-clean (when looked at normally; not super rigorously inspected) and a color high enough on the scale to look (sometimes nearly, usually completely) colorless standing on its own (not beside a more colorless stone). I’m still happy with my compromise. 🙂

    My center stone is .492 carats, Color H, Clarity VS2, Cut Very Good

    My 6 side stones are .18 carats, Color G, Clarity VS1, Cut Good

    not too shabby for a ring made in the early 1900s and given in 1925. 🙂
