$2450

SHAPE: Round
CARAT WEIGHT: 0.80

CULET: None

and

$2220

SHAPE: Round
CARAT WEIGHT: 0.75

There are thousands and thousands of diamonds below $2500. What criteria are you considering? What's important to you?

Check out the Diamond Search here on PriceScope to find relevant ones.

The 0.8 ct J VS2 doesn't have any glaring problems, given the limited information. Sharing the certificate, ASET scope, link to the diamond, etc would make it easier to evaluate. The 0.75ct J VS2 doesn't have enough information to run an HCA analysis.

of those three, the first two had small spot under the table. I could see none in the third. So for the third I put in into the HCA calculator and it came up a .9 which is nice.

If I had to pick one of those three, I would go for the third.

Very nice setting!

For the stone - have you looked at J colours in person? The fluor will only show up while you are in certain lighting. So it will not be a magical cure for a yellow tint.

2 suggestions - first tell them to halt the process. Have them send you the stone (or both of these) to examine first. You can see if the J colour bothers you.

Or, you can still tell them to halt the process. Go to a jewellery store asap and look at some other stones for comparison. If a J colour bothers you, you can ask them to switch to an I and continue the process.

Thanks for the reply... I've now looked at 'J' Colour diamonds and think it'll actually look very nice with my GF's Mediterranean skin :)

I've also asked JA for Ideal scope images but they can't get them due to the diamond not being in the NY office... they said i've picked a diamond with ideal proportions and it'll be a great looking diamond.

Would you agree?... or is it impossible to tel without idealscope?

Also I've been told there could be light leakage due to the symmetry of the lower girdle facets.
