I am looking for a 3 carat-just wondering, will i get a better deal if I try for a 2.89 or 3.2ish type and stay away from the exact 3.0? also-i asked this before but please help-what do you do with a diamond with a large culet-i have a 1 carat and i can see the black dot-if there was more light behind the diamond would it look better? can you recut a culet? or anything to improve this? lastly-anyone seen any great 3 carats lately and where? thank you so much:love:

You will most likely get a better deal by staying under the 3 carat mark (I think). If you are looking for excellent cut and that is increasing the price of the stones you are considering, sometimes it can pay to buy a crummy larger stone and have it recut. You do take some risks there, but it has worked out well for many people. Check out Greentree's post below. https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/what-would-you-do.1756/ Recutting to fix the culet...good question. I would think so.
