Hey msskibunny, i like the lucida setting from tiffanys. from what i've seen, it works very well w/ a princess cut. go to www.dvatche.com and check out the x-setting. it looks a lot like the tiffany's setting.

Thanks mikesgirl. For some reason, I didn't see the side cut before. I really like the cathedral one as well.

Also, I went to D. Vatche and looked at some of the settings. I really like the one w/ the cross, similar to the Tiffany Lucida.

HELP! I got the diamond, now the setting!!!

First I wanted to thank everyone on this board. I''ve learned so much over the past few weeks about finding the right diamond. I feel like I made a very educated decision.

Thanks for the information folks. One more thing, why are round diamonds typically more expensive than the fancy cuts, given the same specifications?

Princess vs. Round

From speaking w/ my coworkers, I''ve learned that the appraised value of their diamond was more than what they pay for it. The range is 30-100%.

1) Is there a typical range?
2) Do certain cuts, princess vs. round, that appraise at a higher percentage than the sale price?

Thanks!

I have been learning about diamonds for the past week, so I am a novice. just saw a D colored diamond, VS1 w/ a 54% table and 62.7% depth. I don''t know what the crown and pavilion angles are.
