by misssararae » Aug 5, 2019 Hi There, I lost the diamond from my solitaire engagement ring back in November. I had a .44ct princess cut my husband purchased from Kay's back in 2009 when we got engaged. He paid $1000 and the stone was an IGI certified "good" cut, F for color, SI1 for clarity and he also purchased their warranty. Trouble we ran into when I lost the diamond was I hadn't had the ring serviced in 8 months so they wouldn't cover the loss. I had the engagement ring removed from my wedding band and I've just been wearing that. Well, my husband recently ordered a replacement ring for me after we had done some research and I'm really excited about it! I think that he got a heck of a deal going with a nearly colorless stone, same clarity (but, actually looks better IMO), way better ideal cut, better ratio, etc. So, what are your opinions of this diamond? It's super hard for me to find the feather inclusion(s) in this diamond. I had to look at the super zoom to even see it. I asked them for the GIA report because I was worried about any clouds but all that's listed is feathers. The specs are .50ct | Ideal Cut Princess | Color I | Clarity SI1 for $680. A similar .50ct | Ideal Cut Princess | Color F | Clarity VVS2 is going for $1250 and visually it's hard for me to tell a difference (I mean, I can tell the color different but...mostly the same). I'm just looking for input if this was a good buy or not in the SI1 and color I range. I'm used to a colorless diamond but my diamond didn't have as good of a cut or ratio as this one. So, it's going to be like an upgrade! Here's a link to the new stone .50ct | Ideal Cut Princess | Color I | Clarity SI1 for $680: https://www.jamesallen.com/loose-diamonds/princess-cut/0.50-carat-i-color-si1-clarity-sku-7470709 Here's the "better" stone I was comparing it to .50ct | Ideal Cut Princess | Color F | Clarity VVS2 is going for $1250: https://www.jamesallen.com/loose-diamonds/princess-cut/0.50-carat-f-color-vvs2-clarity-sku-7183017 I also attached the GIA report they sent us on the new stone. I'm not getting the ring until the 19th for our 10 year anniversary haha, so, I can't see it in person yet until it gets here!
