Calling Gypsy and Diamondseeker2006 - need help with cushion

My Nephew is looking for an engagement ring for his soon to be fiance'. His budget is $10,000 for the stone and the setting. He will email me a photo of the setting style he is looking for and I will let you know what that is. He has narrowed it down to a cushion, in the G, H, I color range and a VS2 or SI1 clarity and of course, the best cut possible. Her ring size is 5-1/4 and he wants to have a simple solitaire with a few pave diamonds on the band, platinum. Can you help me find the best stone in this price range and his requirements? I am thinking he can get a 1.0 to a 1.5 carat stone with this budget? I hope you can help me. Thank you. :wavey:

I'm thinking that James Allen may be our best resource as they seem to have affordable settings and from what I have observed, it's best to purchase the stone and setting with same vendor. I checked WF and they don't have any stones matching my criteria. Help from anyone would be appreciated. Thank you.

I am glad to look and I am sure Gypsy will, too! Good Old Gold is the other place to look because they choose nice cushions for their inventory. I'll check and be back soon!

Gorgeous 1.3 G VS2, beautiful shape and crown

Pretty 1.5 ct., I color:

Pretty cut, probably eyeclean, would have to ask that, but might be overbudget depending on setting...

There were a couple of good H stones except for black inclusions, so I am not listing those.

Thank you DS - this is exciting, I knew that you would come through with some good options. What information should I ask James Allen to provide to be positive that these stones don't have a lot of light leakage? Or, do the numbers tell along with the video provided? I will have him take a look at these stones.

No, numbers tell you nothing. With cushions, seeing them is the only way. James Allen will allow you to choose a maximum of three stones to ask for an ASET image showing light return. They don't always provide them as it depends on where the stones are located. But if he gets them, he can send them to you to post and we can tell you if any of them have problems. All of those stones have a very pretty cut, though.

Remember to tell him to compare dimensions on the stones not weight. Two cuahions of same weight can have different dimensions
