Re: Can someone pretty please help me find a suitable diamon

Given that it seems to be a virtual listing of stones without actual images, I suggest sticking with stones with at least VS2 clarity. This would be my pick based on your budget. http://www.diamondrocks.co.uk/certificate.php?products_id=1946132 https://myapps.gia.edu/ReportCheckPortal/getReportData...

Re: How to tell if a stone is a diamond? Pics in link

Thankyou for the replies!! Some of that "paste" stuff is actually pretty beautiful :eek: I tried the fog test and couldn't see anything, but I'm not so clever and probably just missed it :P The more I stare at the ring the more it looks like the outter stones are diamonds and the middle st...

Re: Can someone pretty please help me find a suitable diamon

Well, I could see a very small amount of colour in the J. Hardly anything, but I thought over time it just might bug me, so we went for thbmok's suggested diamond :mrgreen: Thankyou thbmok! I'm so excited to see it, but my boyfriend isn't going to "officially" propose until mid-August! I d...

Re: Can someone pretty please help me find a suitable diamon

Thankyou for the replies! I have seen some beautiful diamonds on this forum but its quite difficult to get a true idea of colour when you can't freely move the actual thing around in different lights. I will take a trip to a b&m store with my boyfriend after he finishes work and see what we thin...

Re: Can someone pretty please help me find a suitable diamon

That one looks promising too, just make sure you are OK with J color. It'll face up white but you may notice a slight tint when looking at the stone from the side or at an angle. *hugs you* thankyou thbmok. I've told my partner the problem and he was lovely about it and said we'd pick out a better ...

Can someone pretty please help me find a suitable diamond?

Hi! I'd be so grateful for some help finding a suitable diamond for an engagement ring! My boyfriend is happy with me doing all the research etc but I think is starting to get a little frustrated with me wanting to get the "perfect" one I posted about a diamond I thought was OK and then le...

Re: Newbie needing advice on a J coloured stone!

Thankyou missgotrocks and dreamer. I will email the vendor... Is the low crown angle also likely to affect visual beauty? Or "just" durability? I feel so stupid...

Re: Newbie needing advice on a J coloured stone!

Ouch... 27 is indeed the angle.... :-(

Now what? I think my boyfriend wouldn't be too impressed if I rejected the stone, but not too impressed if it chipped either!

Re: Newbie needing advice on a J coloured stone!

Sorry to post again, does that mean that a "very good" cut is significantly less likely to be OK if bought online?

Re: Newbie needing advice on a J coloured stone!

"Very good" diamonds are not usually recommended over diamonds which are graded "ideal" without more information. How much were you planning to spend on the stone if you don't mind sharing? Do you already have a setting? There are people here who can help you find something with...
