    groom2be86 :  Moissanite. Seriously. They have more sparkle and fire, they’re only very slightly less hard (harder than sapphire) and you can get an ideal cut and color for a fraction of the cost.


    Diamonds are so costly that it leaves people in a position to compromise on the beauty of the stone. There is no greater inherent value in a diamond, it’s just had better marketing. 

    Seriously. Look into Moissanite.

    I can’t say enough good things about james Allen.  My fi and I researched the hell out of diamonds when we were shopping for my ring.  We found exactly what we wanted at james Allen.  A VERY similar stone at a local brick and mortar store wanted almost 20% more.  We saved a bunch of money and I love my ring!

    loved james allen, it’s been appraised at 30% over what we paid. 


    as for the stones, it depends on what is important to her. I much rather prefer a smaller stone at better clarity because I sit and stare at any little imperfection. Some women dont care about small inclusions.

    groom2be86 :  Just couldn’t help but play around in the James Allen website. Why don’t you consider buying online if you’re worried about ring coverage? It’s very reputable, and you’ll find numerous threads on bees here buying from there?

    I plugged in search categories within their databases and found something you might like. You can get up to 0.9 carats in ideal cut (factor that determines sparkle), VS2 clarity and H color. I wouldn’t do SI clarity to be honest unless it was eyeclean, but VS2 clarity is already pretty good. You can then choose most settings on there for anywhere around $200-1000. There’s more if you want to play around with the scales yourself.
