I was wondering what you thought about some possible chracteristics for emerald shape diamonds. I originally was looking for a VS2 but it seems many are trying to bump me up to a VS1. Personally, I think it may be just wasted money since it is so difficult to spot the difference. I was even thinking about the possibility of an SI1. What are your thoughts? I know that the emerald shape is more difficult to "hide" the inclusions than a round brilliant. Also, what about the color? I figured that an H was sufficient. Again, people are pushing the higher color. I figured it was to make more money!! If I stick to a "good" cut with depth & table between 60-70 and length to width between 1.5 - 1.7, then what is the lowest characteristics (based on my discussion above) that would produce a quality diamond?
