Like some of the others have said, sometimes carat weight is less of a big deal than other specs as mainly you want to ensure the stone has really good dimensions that will create a larger looking surface area. The cut of a diamond is actually more important than you would think. It is also what gives the diamond that really brilliant shine. As for clarity, something where you wouldn’t see any inclusions with the naked eye should be fine. And colour, it can depend. I have a yellow gold engagement ring and therefore my fiancé was able to get away with a slightly warmer toned diamond although it still looks super white in the setting. But honestly I’m sure the diamond you pictured will be gorgeous.

@stephaniekate9210:  I wouldn’t stress about it! It sounds like you made an educated purchase and knew what you were getting.

Unless you have an unlimited budget, something’s gotta give, and some people choose to sacrifice a little color, some a little clarity, some s little size. It’s all personal preference! You didn’t sacrifice on cut which is the most contributing factor to diamonds brilliance. I’m sure you will love your diamond. And a diamond that sparkles a little bit less than a more perfect diamond still sparkles a heck of a lot more than any faux or non diamond jewelry you may have!

@newbeegirl:  That’s actually what I did and I love this informative advice! I got a 1.92 but I went J in color and got a triple EX with VVS2 (not necessary but it’s a mind thing for me)

@MomsSpaghetti:  That sounds like a gorgeous diamond! Do you have pictures?? 😊 I totally get the mind clean thing, I’m weird about color and carat size so when I was looking for my new round solitaire I couldn’t bring myself to go below an F in color or less than 1ct, even though I know G and H diamonds can be almost as white and diamonds cost more at specific carat marks. I got lucky and found a 1.15ct that faces up like many 1.25cts and although it’s graded F in color, it’s identical to a GIA E color!

@stephaniekate9210:  Yes, that one definitely looks better to me. I can still see inclusions but they don’t seem as prominent.

@stephaniekate9210:  Without seeing the lab report, can’t say for sure, but it definitaly looks better based on the photo and video.  Congrats!

Personally, I’m in the minority. I don’t mind a few inclusions. I prefer my diamonds imperfect. Something to look at and say “this one is mine”.
