I had been looking for a diamond for my girlfriend for weeks. I knew she wanted a big stone, but I could not afford a 2 carat diamond. Well, I took a chance and bought a 2.55 Princess Cut VS2 G/H for $5,500 from 47th St. Closeouts. It is absolutely gorgeous!!! During my shopping in local stores, I never saw any diamonds as beautiful as this one. It is clear and the clarity is incredible. Please note that this is not a advertisement for this company. I just want to let others know that a clarity enhanced diamond can be the way to go on budget.
