    @mrspinesol:  funny- if you actually understood my post- I’d would be clearer to you. Lol.

    1. For Clarity get SI or better. SI1 is good assuming its to GIA standards.

    2. For color get Colorless (d, e, f) or near colorless (g, h, I, and even though J is near colorless J is too yellow for my preference) so near colorless (omitting J, or better.)

    3.  Do not buy a deep diamond, why pay for the carat weight if you can’t see it.

    4. So long as you are in those parameters, go as big as your budget allows, and as big as your comfortable. 

    Example. 1ct rd premium, Si1, G color is between 4,000 and 7,500. and a 1 ct rd premium, FL or IF, D is between 25,000 and 30,000. And if my budget could go to 25,000 or 30,000 I’d rather have a 3 carat Si1, G. Which is why, in my personal opinion- carat weight is important- as long as you have balanced the other c’s.

    My most important it ideal cut because I loves the sparkles.

    Then size, but not nessessarily the larger the better, not too small not too big, around 1/1.5ct TCW because anything larger is too big for me to wear daily personally (I would take it off more than have it on).

    Clarity = as long as it is eye clean I am not interested the specs.

    Colour = dont care, I love me some light yellow sparkles just as much as bright white.

    Each C on my Asha Diamond 5 stone is perfect by design, so this is my theorectical priorities for a mined diamond.

    Cut, I want my diamond to be alive! 🙂  Then, clarity, color, and carat.

    Cut! It makes such a difference for sparkle. And then color. When we first looked at diamonds , I realized how easily I can tell the difference between color– especially anything below F (FI opted for D because of this). With that said, I know a lot of girls that like the warmth of their slightly yellow stones! After that, carat, and clarity. I think you can go down a bit on clarity if you have the right jeweler picking out the stones, who knows to opt for ones with the inclusions on the lower side so that the diamond appears eye clean.
