Question:

Can you let me know what you think of the following diamond? My fiancé picked it out but I wanted your opinion on it before I pull the trigger.

Thanks

Answer:

I believe this diamond is priced a little high – probably because of the polish\symmetry.  If you look closely you will see a good number of inclusions which I am not convinced can be covered by prongs.  I would recommend you look at this one:

It’s much cleaner and a few hundred dollars cheaper. If you are willing to go down a bit in size you can get an even better value in the 0.90 to 0.92 range. See my Guide to Diamond pricing to understand why. You can save close to $1500 by doing this.

Q: Thanks- I really like the 2nd diamond! My fiancé was happy with it to and she really didn’t want to go lower then 1 carat so this worked out great. Awesome site and thanks for the advice.

    I’ve been comparing diamond prices online and found that the Blue Nile diamonds were rather overpriced compared to some of their competitors.
