Q: I understand you highly recommend James Allen, and I’ve been looking on there website. I have found this diamond,

http://www.jamesallen.com/loose-diamonds/asscher-cut/1.03-carat-h-color-vs2-clarity-sku-58738 and it appears to be right in my wheelhouse. It is an asscher cut H color vs2 clarity and looks very good in the picture. And the GIA certification for the girdle is slightly thick-thick not extreme like in the description. I have also called to verify that as well. I think this ring looks amazing in the picture and the H VS2 1 carat would be right where I am looking for and the price seems amazing (I’d like to keep the cost of the stone and setting under 6k). I am interested in your opinion and look forward to hearing from you! Read More…
