Hi there I am after a 1.5 round diamond to have set as a solitaire in
a petite pave setting band. Where do you recommend I purchase it and
what are the 4Cs I should focus on?
Thanks for writing in.
As you may have guessed from reading some of my articles online I am a big fan on buying diamonds online. In general you will save a lot of money of retail.
In your case I would suggest you take a look at this diamond:
This is an eye clean H-VS1 with an excellent cut and comes in under your budget.
