My favorites are Brilliance.com, B2Cjewels.com, WonderJewelers.com.  Lowest prices I’ve found, sometimes they have photos of the actual diamond. All are certified (GIA/EGL/IGI). Those are the top 3 I buy from when starting a new project ring

TrueLove407 :  Are you looking for a modern or old-cut?

TrueLove407 :  So, you love M colored stones or is this budget driven? I’m just tyring to assess how you see the 4 Cs. Cut is the most important to me, but after that, what are you looking for? 

Old cuts look good in lower colors, as do super-ideals (whiteflash ACA, HighPerformanceDiamonds, etc.) are great at masking color. If your budget allows, look at L & M’s in the August Vintage European Cut from Good Old Gold. Superideal cutting in an old pattern. Unless you look at the side, a G and M look nearly identical.

TrueLove407 :  Ah. Ok. So read up about Diamond undertones (here’s a start, https://www.victorcanera.com/blog/diamond-color-undertones). The ‘yellow’ colors are highly affected by these. 

It will be much easier to select a lower color old cut (old mine, old european or transitional) that has awesome performnace than a modern. In general, lower colors are associated with lower cut quality (until you get to the fancy yellow colors). If you have time, just look and look and look. Make sure the seller has a great return policy as color is very personal.  I find old cuts tend to have a ‘creamier’ look that is quite appealing in low colors. 

This N is so pretty. http://www.jewelsbygrace.com/1-51-old-european-cut-diamond-gia-n-vs1

This QR has a really nice body tone and pretty cutting. http://www.jewelsbygrace.com/2-45ct-oec-diamond-gia-qr-vs1
