Q: First off I’ve found your site extremely helpful, its provided me with enough information to feel like I can make an informed decision regarding diamond purchases, which makes the entire process easier and much more comfortable.
I’ve narrowed my search down to two diamonds and I would appreciate a second opinion to help lock in my choice.
The two diamonds are both round cut, diamonds: http://www.jamesallen.com/diamonds/K-VS1-Excellent-Cut-Round-Diamond-1529500.asp 1.30 Carat, VS1, K Color, Excellent Cut – $5790
http://www.jamesallen.com/diamonds/J-SI1-Excellent-Cut-Round-Diamond-1543391.asp – 1.23 carat, SI1, J Color, Excellent Cut – $5540
My diamond budget max is on or about $6000, although there is some wiggle room if there is something very nice above that point.
Intent is to maximize cut and carat while finding a diamond that is visibly free of flaws or color. Setting will be either white gold or a platinum metal. Read More…
Q: I just wanted to extend my gratitude and thanks for all of the available info you display on your website. It has made the daunting task of looking for an engagement ring much easier.
I would like to get you opinion about my particular situation:
I am looking for a Round diamond with a very thin band with side stones. Would like to get the best value between quality and size. Am looking to spend with the diamond, engagement ring, and wedding band a total of $4,000. I did go by a Zales outlet store last week and they had their celebration collection 15% off. I did like the ring and didn’t think it was too bad of a deal, but i felt there were better values out there. I would be willing to go slightly over my budget if a value is too good to pass up. Also i would like to be above 3/4 of a carat. I Will list a few suggestions of what I have in mind thus far. Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thank you for your service
