I really appreciate all of the great information. I think I am finally starting to feel more comfortable with the process and how I should approach it. I am going to talk to, BG, and and see what feels right.
Another subjective question for the group - is getting a G color a bad decision at this price point or would I not even be able to tell for studs? It looks like has two 2.07 ct diamonds that might work well, but they are H color. I originally thought I should focus on color as the most important attribute after cut, but will the human eye even notice that these are H color on the ear?
You have been given good advice. I would
re-iterate trying to stay just under 2.00 ct. DSS (diamond Shrinkage Syndrome) is a real thing here. Never say never on an upgrade
