Q: I was looking for some help finding a loose diamond. I’m looking for something that’s at least 1.5 carats and a round shape. Also, an ideal/excellent cut and at least VS1 clarity. The budget is about 10-11,000. Read More…

Q: Thank you so much for you helpful website! I am in need of advice. I have a budget of $1,600 and I am looking online to buy an engagement ring. I am looking for the nicest option that I can get for that amount. She likes solitary and white gold (or platinum, I don’t know if it is wise to spend more money on the band than the diamond). I’ve looked at James Allen and liked their website but would love some expert advice from you guys. Thank you so much! Read More…

Q: You helped us a couple of years ago with an engagement diamond and we were very happy – thank you.

Now I’m looking at a diamond pendant and earring set to settle and insurance claim. I have about 4000-4500 for the three diamonds and I’m looking for something nice, but also good value. Other than brilliant cut, I’m open to your suggestion – what do you think? Read More…

Q: Upon a co-worker’s Tiffany recommendation and doing research through Google, I came upon your site and could not be more thankful. Wanting to make that brilliant impact (like all guys) when I propose with that perfect diamond, but not having a ton of money, it seems that James Allen is probably the way to go. After seeing your insistence to help, I feel it would be foolish on my end to not ask for some recommendations. Luckily I know exactly what she wants, about a 3/4ct round white gold solitaire. Being 23 and a recent college grad with tons of debt, ideally I would like to stay under / around $2k but I have no problems paying extra for the quality if it’s worthwhile. Thank you so much in advance for the help and having such a great resource site! Read More…
