LoveLikeCrazy:  I love Whiteflash!! That’s where my engagement ring is from. I definitely need to consider that band. I am looking into that one and some u-prong bands. The .50 looks perfect on your hand with your e-ring too!

I think you just need to try on a bunch of different sizes and figure out what is best for you! I have a .5 carat in a dainty halo and am a size 8, and I think it’s perfect for me. I tried on rings in 1 carat and bigger and i thought it was too much for my preference, even though according to the chart posted on page 1, I should have gotten a 1.5 or 2 carat stone, which would have been ridiculous to me.

 

Edit: I just realized this was an old thread that was resurrected. Sorry OP!

Supersleuth:  I love your ring! The SO and I are shopping around and I want a solitaire, so classic and draws all the attention to the diamond. Do you happen to know the spec, i.e. clarity and cut? And may I ask where you bought and how much (if you know of course!) 🙂 Thanks!

mrschristensen:  Thank you for your kind words.  

The diamond is from Whiteflash and is one of their ‘A Cut Above’ (ACA) range: excellent cut, polish and symmetry, and hearts and arrows.  Colour G and clarity VS1.  I would have been as happy with a lower colour and clarity but would have still gone for the excellent cut of the ACA range.  I’m based in the UK and so we had to pay postage and 20% import duty and it was still cheaper than diamonds in the UK.  The setting is from a UK jeweller called Mappin and Webb.  

Have a look at Whiteflash’s site  www.Whiteflash.com.  

Another online diamond site with great diamonds is Brian Gavin.

Both Whiteflash and Brian Gavin have gemologists to choose their best diamonds and they choose them to look good in all lights, not just in a jewellers shop.

My advice would be to try on lots of rings with different diamond sizes, shapes and settings.  I’m not a conventional person and so I was very surprised to find a classical design looked best.  Don’t just go by photos on Weddingbee but make sure that you see rings in person.

If you are interested in buying from Whiteflash and live in the US I would suggest that you have a romantic weekend in Houston where Whiteflash have a store where they sell diamonds at online prices.  Book an appointment with Whiteflash and ask them to show you lots of well cut diamonds.  Then choose the one you like the best. 

The reason I say this is that well cut diamonds may all be beautiful but they can look very different from each other, even when they are the same colour, size and clarity.  This is because a miniscule change in cut angle can create very different sparkle patterns.  

Don’t be frightened of lowering colour and clarity.  Very few people can tell the difference between a D colour and an I colour once a diamond is set (and certainly not in a solitaire) and nobody can tell the difference between a flawless diamond and a VS2 unless they carry a x10 magnifying glass with them.

I had quite a few problems in the UK getting a good jeweller who was happy to set a diamond.  You might consider Whiteflash’s or Brian Gavin’s settings.  

I decided on six yellow gold prongs.  I’ve  had no problems with them.  They are small and when I look at my ring sideways they are not above the height of the diamond table.  They don’t affect the colour of the diamond.

Good luck.

I’m a size 6.5. The center diamond, I think, is 3/8 ct.

My ring size is a 5.5 due to my large knuckles, but my true size is 5.25.  My oval diamond is 1.52ct.1 updated
