Bees, out of curiousity, if you were looking around for a ring in the $1000 range, and found this for $1000 USD would you go for it?
3.20 carat I2 cloudy diamond in 14K white gold.
Edited to add that I am not considering this ring, I came across it on eBay and I was surprised that there were around 100 bids! I didn’t think these types of diamonds were popular, so I was curious about what the bees thought!

No, I would buy a nice gemstone ring, or a smaller but prettier diamond. That diamond looks like it has no sparkle!

That diamond looks awful, so no.

Quality over quanity. I would find a smaller diamond with better stats and more sparkle.
I agree with @SomedayHisBride:… there’s no sparkle.

@Glorificous: Thanks, I’m not considering that ring, I was just surprised that there were nearly 100 bids on it! Just curiosity 🙂

Sorry, no. Not that I personally care about what others think, but I am sure my friends would wonder if I needed glasses and couldn’t tell how cloudy the diamond was. Way better quality options out there in the $1K price range. Sorry!

you can get a much better quality ring for that price. Thats not actually too bad of a budget! Check out blue nile and design yourself a solitaire! Or try out moissanite if you arent attached to diamond and want a clear stone
I ran a quick blue nile search! you could get a .52 carat, 14k white gold princess cut solitaire for under 1k! H color, s12. Smaller, but much, much better quality

@mrsmay07: You can get a nice moisy or morganite for that price or you can go the Cz route and save tons of money. Also, as other bees have stated you can definitely go smaller for the same price and look nicer.

Another great place (for the gotta have a diamond gal) would be to check out pawn shops. You can get a pretty, better quality solitaire there with your budget.

@mrsmay07: Blech! I’ve seen ice cubes with better clarity than that!

Nope! Sparkle is the most important part of a diamond, for me.

I remember there was a bee on here that was looking for a diamond that was very included since that was what she liked… Forget her ( user) namw though. I wouldn’t buy it, though I’d like to see it in real life.
