It's about that time and I'd like to find a nice emerald, pear, or oval cut for under $6k. I'd really like to find a stone that she'll love for a good value. For ovals or pears, I'd like to find something in the F-I and VS1-SI2 range that's eye clean, between 1 and 1.5 ct. I know that evaluating emerald cuts is a little different. She likes Rose gold, so I was going to pair it with a rose gold solitaire or halo setting.


Pear or Oval
This 1.27 1-VVS1 is my favorite right now. I don't know if it has a bow tie though.

This 1.21 ct. VS2 also looked interesting to me. It seems eye clean, and looks seems like an okay deal.

Emerald
This 1.25 ct emerald cut seemed really neat. It's IF, but it's I color. Not sure if this is a good stone/value, but I was thinking the color might look okay next to rose gold.

Would any of these be a good buy? Thanks!

Hi - I think you might get a bit more help here from other members if you narrow down your search criteria - starting with shape...this is a pretty broad range you've thrown out - - what does she want...or if you don't know what do you think she would want?
Good luck

I think a list of priorities would be a good idea.

So here's what I think would be helpful.

1. Of the three shapes, which one does the WEARER prefer.

2. Is size (dimensions) or SHAPE more important?

3. Are dimensions or color more important.

That would help. Also ask ED for an ASET on that first pear. It's got a lot of promise.

https://enchanteddiamonds.com/diamonds/view/P121-ELGZE5 This one has an nice image and the ASET is a good one for a pear. It does have a bowtie but it looks like it is mild and like it blends.

I would pass on that Emerald.

I'll look around for you.

Thanks so much for the input!

I think she would prefer a pear or oval, so I'll narrow my search to those. I'd like to maximize for size in G-I up to SI2 range. I really like the first pear you pointed out.

I'll ask for an ASET on the VVS1.
