    Thank you for all your help to date!

    I have narrowed down a selection of diamonds across WF and BGD and I am hoping you would critique my options and perhaps suggest which one you would go with! Would also be interested to see any other options you may think would be suitable. My main criteria are - Budget ~US$5k (including setting - can stretch a little bit), Colour H and above, with the cut being as best as possible. I am going for a very simple solitaire setting and am sure BGD or WF could do exactly what I need in that regard. Here are my selections so far;

    This last one was recommended to me by BGD, as it is very similar to a blue diamond I was considering which unfortunately sold :cry2: (appreciate however it is slightly smaller than the other two, but BGD said face up it had the same dimensions so largely indistinguishable)

    You probably can’t go wrong with any of these choices. I like the H VS1, nice size and combo of colour and clarity. Leaves you $1000 for the setting which will get you something well made for your gorgeous stone!

    Do you know if you are color sensitive at all?
    Do you have any plans of trading up in the future?

    It's a surprise engagement so unfortunately not. On that basis I was advised to stick with around an H diamond.

    As for trading up, potentially but I couldn't say either way.
