Q&A: Why is this G Color VS1 Clarity Round Diamond Ring So Cheap on Amazon?

Question & Answer


Can you please help me out with this.
How come this G Color Diamond is soo cheap. Specs look good

Update: Diamond is no longer available on Amazon, thus, link is broken.



Thanks for writing in and I am very happy you asked about this diamond before buying it!

I am not sure why you think it is cheap – in fact I think it is very overpriced. Here are my 2 reasons:

1) This is an EGL certification. Please read my page on EGL Certificate and you will understand why I never recommend buying EGL.
After reading this page you will understand why even though this diamond is listed as a G-VS1 it is most likely compared to at best an H-VS2 (and that is being generous) GIA diamond.

2) The diamond is missing one the most important characteristics of the 4 Cs – diamond cut. Please read this page on my site and you will see why cut is crucial. The diamond you send sent me has no cut listed- what if its a poor cut? 

I did some search and found 2 really nice diamonds in the size (both are actually larger) and shape you were looking for. Either one of these are a great choice and they are both Ideal cut and GIA certified H-VS2 diamonds. They are also both over $5,000 LESS expensive then the diamond you sent me. 



You should also read my page on Diamond Color and you will understand why I am recommending H color as opposed to G.
Let me know if you have any other questions I can help you with,
