Which diamond to choose and feather near the girdle

I'm looking at a couple of diamonds and there are feather near the girdle. Should I worry about this? I've been reading that it's a non-issue if the diamond is a VS2. Why is that? Here are the diamonds: http://www.whiteflash.com/loose-diamonds/round-cut-loose-diamond-3114524.htm http://www.whiteflas...

Re: Depth and angle issue for these round stones

Hi. Thanks for your advice. I really appreciate it. I didn't factor the extraordinarily high clarity and the VVS. Those stones were recommended by JA.

I'll keep looking for other diamonds. Most likely at WF and BG. Hopefully I'll find something in the .7-.8 with a $3500 budget.

Re: Depth and angle issue for these round stones

And here's stone #1. http://www.pricescope.com/files/images/stone1_-_j80.jpg The JA gemologist said he prefers #3 but I like #2 more. And to top it off, I still keep thinking about the depth and think it's too high. Maybe I should look for another set of diamonds from BGD or WF. There aren't any JA ...

Re: Girlfriend really likes Tiffany setting...what to do?

I'm also interested in the Tiffany Harmony replica setting. I've seen JA's replica version and while it's nice, I don't think it's for me (and her). I'm in the process of talking to BGD and WF about custom ring. Not sure which company I should choose. Any tips?

Re: Depth and angle issue for these round stones

They all look decent. Depth is a little high but 5.9mm is just right for that carat weight, so that's fine. Which one would you choose? If I were to pick based on the specs then I do go with #2. Me too! I was leaning towards #2 but just a bit concerned that it might be too deep. I'm also debating i...

Depth and angle issue for these round stones

Hey there Bees, Shopping for a stone is really hard work. The magnify view of the stones at JA are pretty intimidating especially if the scratches or dents will show up in real life. I'm looking at three round stones from JA that look to be very similar yet I be concerned about the depth is too deep...

Question about engagement ring setting adjustment.

We are getting married next January and picked out/ordered our wedding bands in March (at our jeweler's trunk show - great prices). I picked a band with three rows of small stones that wasn't part of a set with my engagement ring, but was very similar. I really liked the band, and with the trunk sho...
