Ok everyone! Thanks for this great forum. I have learned so much.

I am buying an E ring stone for my girlfriend.

Round cut, and would like 1.5 Carats and up (bigger is better right :) ) Eye clean and colorless.

My budget is $8,500 for the stone (top of my budget). Am I being realistic?

Nope, not for colorless! We will have to look closer to J color with that budget!

I have to go out awhile but will check back later to see if other have added some more stones for you.


These are measurements to help you stay in ideal cut territory with a GIA excellent cut stone.

crown angle: 34-35.0

table: 54-58

depth: 60-62.3

pavilion angle: 40.6-40.9 (sometimes 41.0)


Thank you. I look forward to it.

IN the price range you are looking you will likely have to look in the H/I color range and potentially SI1 clarity range. It is important to consider top-tier cut a priority and ask about eye-cleanliness from the seller. Odds are you can find a terrific diamond within those ranges.

Just my opinion...#1 CUT....mix/match/divide for your budget. I would never sacrifice CUT for bigger is better, I think you can find a very nice diamond for your budget keeping in mind you can give and take on Color, Clarity, and Size.
