Sorry Steve, it is quieter here on weekends and not many are expert with Princess cuts. I will try to offer you a little help where I can. Firstly, do you intentionally want a very high colour - an E or F? You could go a bit lower and still have a very white looking diamond, to a G or even H perhaps, with the clarity you can drop too from VVS especially, you could maybe consider an SI1 as these too can be eyeclean in some instances, unless you prefer VV or VS. I will post you a chart with suggested proportions in a moment which might help you.

Here is the chart.

Have you checked out some of the other online vendors who offer pics and cut quality info of their diamonds so you can get an idea of what you are buying? Popular ones include

Thanks for responding! I think a G would be the lowest color I would go. We''ve been in a lot of stores and have seen diamonds below a G and we did not like them. I think I want a VS at least. Most of the diamonds on www.mondera.com are in this range. I would like to go higher in CT weight but the site skips from .7''s to 1.0''s. and the price goes into the 3,000''s which will be too much I think.
