If you are having a custom setting, is it better to get/purchase your own accent stones or just have the designer do it for you?

Would it be cheaper to get the stones yourself?

Does the clarity and cut make a real big difference in round brilliant stones with a size of let''s say .35 carats?

My center stone is a 1.5 G, VS2 round brilliant.

Thanks everyone!

If you want to pick out your own accent stones it's all about what your preference is. If your big on CUT which you should be being its the main ingredient for a beautiful diamond you might want to pick the accent stones yourself.

There are many reputable vendors that can accomodate you that offer competive pricing. Figure out what you want to spend and you can do a price comparison through pricescope on stones that fit your criteria, Cut, color, clarity...etc....

CUT CUT CUT my man..Thats what makes the difference.

If you know the specs on your diamond which is found in measurements given by the sarin data post them and you can figure out what cut class your diamond is in according to AGS cut charts. If your a newbie and your stone is not an ideal cut diamond you might want to go with accent stones that don't neccessarily fit in the ideal range.Give more info on your stone? Is it a Hearts & Arrows diamond and list the cert. in which lab graded your diamond GIA, EGL..etc...

Thanks everyone!
