Hey everyone! I need some help finding a stone. My older sister''s boyfriend asked my parents for her hand in marriage and my mom gave him an antique setting that was passed down to her from her mom. His mother gave him a stone and he went to a local jeweler to have it re-sized and set. Poor guy! They called him back and gently let him know that it was not a real diamond. He is soo embarrassed
(and I bet upset with his Mother!).

He wants to get her .75c. I''m pretty new to PS, so all the help I can pass on to him would be greatly appreciated! I advised him to get an ideal cut (I have a H&A''s and love it!) and I think if he stayed in the near colorless range and eye-clean it will be beautiful no matter what the size!

What do you think is feasible for under $2k? Of course the cheaper the better and the bigger the better, but when you want an ideal cut something has to give!

Thanks in advance!

Can he go slightly over $2K? This one is $2300
Thanks for searching! I really appreciate it but I think he wants to stay under, maybe more like $1,500. So if its smaller, thats okay.

This stone is probably worth getting more info on. With the PS discount and a simple setting it should come in near his budget.

ETA: under 2k that is. Under 1.5K for the whole thing will be tough to get to .75

ETAA: Here's a potentially nice old cut stone from OWD if he wants to mimic the old ring.

For the JA stone, you should request the image, report, and an idealscope image if possible.

For the stone at OWD, I would just call and ask what they think of that particular stone.

Chech that either is eye-clean as well. Is 1500 for the stone only, or the whole ring?

Great ideas, will do. $1500 give or take for just the stone. Thanks again!
