My fiancé has decided on a three stone Vatche Truffle setting in a size 7.75. What remains is choosing a center stone that will match nicely with the two 0.25 H&A side stones. I would like to get something between 0.8 - 1 ct. (Going over 1 ct really increases the price!) The budget for the center stone is $3200 max.
I came across the following stone:
I am assured the strong blue does not have any milkiness problems. As far as I can tell the idealscope and aset look fine, but even after reading all the material I cannot translate the information into what actually produces a great looking diamond.
What do you think? Good choice, or should I go smaller to get better color?
