Cut > clarity > carat > color 

I wanted the best we could get size wise in clarity/cut. Color wasn’t as much of an issue for me as long as it didnt show yellow, and the one we chose does not.

Buying sight unseen (Blue Nile) my priorities were:
shape (RB)>Cut>Clarity>Carat>Color (Went with an H to get a slightly bigger diamond)

That my beloved grandfather had bought it for my grandmother, in 1923.

I never changed the setting, or upgraded it, despite almost 40 years of marriage, and us no longer being poor, college students.

Color and clarity were both important. (Along with size!) In the end I wanted a colorless diamond. I d want a hint of color.

Cut! Least important was colour (I have a J).

Cut was most important, least important to me was color.

That my poor Darling Husband traipsed around Europe with it for a month trying to hide it in safes etc. I did check the cut was excellent (or whatever the best is) as I wanted him to have been looked after by the dealer. I don’t know much about diamonds – I always forget whats important.

I have a 1 carat diamond and we wanted cut and clarity to be the priority.  It had to be good quality.

Not having one lol! I like color and environmental responsibility! My first husband got me a diamond even though I didn’t want one and didn’t even bother to get a colored one! I don’t like colorless stones.  He got a large colorless but still wasn’t my liking.  If it had been yellow or blue and responsibly mined I would have liked it more. 🙁 If my Fiance were to insist on buying one I’d say that responsibility to the earth in which we hope to pass to our children and the responsibilty to people’s lives and making sure none are exploited, harmed or hurt to get a chunk of rock would be most important to me.  After that would be color, cut and carat.

Cut, without question. With everything else, I had a “sweet spot” that did not have to be perfect, but without the proper cut, no stone will live up to its potential.

That it was a diamond (my birthstone). I was more concerned about the setting being compatible with my work and lifestyle.

craigslistgirl:  same priorities here bee! Except that I insisted it be an antique (oec) stone if it was going to be a diamond because I was open to really anything initially. 🙂

Sparkle and Cut. I didnt want any visable inclusions at all. That was my main concern!
