Hello everyone.

So i've decided to finally purchase a diamond. I'm probably buying it in Mexico, in a jewerly i have frequented previously.

They offered me these 2 options, which i checked on GIa's website.

Budget is around 10k usd so they are in budget.

Any help is really appreciated, since i am clueless. both are Gs, around 1.10Ct, Vs1 and excellent cut.
They are around 8700usd.

Thanks in advance

You should go to the Knowledge tab at the top of the screen and read through the information on there to give you a good grounding.

Use the HCA Advisor tool to plug in the specs of any diamond you are looking at and see how it scores - anything under a score of 2 should be a potentially great stone.

You should also consider purchasing an IdealScope and an ASETscope if you wish to buy locally - they will enable you to check for cut quality.

I personally would recommend buying from one of the PS-recommended vendors - they can supply the ASET and IS images to confirm the stones are cut as well as they can be, and you know you will have a great returns and/or upgrade policy to fall back on if you need it.
