I have been searching and learning about diamonds for a couple weeks now. I stumbled upon this site and it has been very informative. I feel like I'm close to picking a diamond out but just can't put all this info together to be confident about my purchase. I have all he recommended percentages and angles I guess clarity is where I am having the most problems. One question I have is as long as m stone falls into all the proper parameters for cut "pav angle, table etc" I shouldn't have to worry about it? I look at diamond plots and not sure what to avoid? I was told no feathers by a friend they are cracks but I read feathers can be ok. http://www.whiteflash.com/loose-diamonds/round-cut-loose-diamond-3653202.htm I though this was a good diamond am I on the right track. I'm looking to spend 4-4500 ideal cut vs2-vs1 not sure how to pick a good si1 it seems to stressful. I'm thinking no lower than h color .80 carat range. I would appreciate some advice or guidance on this.
