Hello guys,

I came across a tiny yellow diamond from James Allen the other day. This is my first time trying to buy a yellow diamond, want some opinions. I placed the diamond on hold while JE can't ship any loose diamond at this moment due to Covid-19.

The link: https://www.jamesallen.com/loose-di...d/0.23-carat-vs1-clarity-sku-3907111?a_aid=ps

SHAPE:Heart
CARAT WEIGHT:0.23
COLOR:Yellow
COLOR INTENSITY:Fancy Vivid
CLARITY:VS1
POLISH:Very Good
SYMMETRY:Good
FLUORESCENCE:Faint
L/W (MM):3.64*3.93

I want to make it a ear stud with 3 prong setting. The diamond is asking for $840.

How do you guys think, it this a good buy? Thanks all for your opinions.

I have no idea if the price is more/less than common, the color is NOT common - as far as I can tell & from a screen. 'Vivid' is a range, and this is a good sample of the FVY I find most beautiful.

I think it's a great shape and color. If you love the shape and color, the price is worth it.

I like it! Strong and even colour, and the faceting also works really nicely in terms of not having obvious leakage or excessive obstruction/contrast :)

@kenny is good with coloured diamonds so might be able to offer comment :)

Make sure they keep it on Hold while they can't ship it out - you wouldn't want it to come off Hold automatically after 24/48 hours because of the way the system is set up to run in normal times!

Another option - the seller is a PSer. The original vendor, Leibish, is very reputable (they specialise in fancy coloured diamonds).

The 0.66ctw pair is still available - listed at $1380. I personally prefer the "bucket of glitter" type of sparkle that this pair will output over the splintery flash of the JA.

Thanks for the posting, the pair looks really good. Personally I don't like the shape that much, but I will think about it. Thanks again for the posting.
