Will this extra help? I really love the shape of the inspo ring. how its square and not octogon shape with semi flat table. looking for 12x12 or 13 x 11 ish. Thank you everyone for your help :wavey:

    I think you can get close to a 12x11/10 ish with the 150k budget. This ring is definitely not exact square, I believe it is Harry Winston? So I would shoot for an I VS2. I have seen plenty of ECs in an I color and the color doesn’t bug me in the least. I own one. Still looks very white to me. I agree, contact IDJ... as many vendors as possible because what you want is specific and you need many vendors hunting for you.

    Okay, the table is the flat part in the center of the stone. It is always flat. The upper part of the stone above the girdle is called the crown. It is a beautiful part of the diamond, and the smaller the table, the more crown you see. Don't go for a huge table and flat crown. With your budget, you should get a very well cut asscher. I look for tables of 65% or less on modern asschers. Antique stones usually have much smaller tables and nice high crowns. You are looking in a size range where there are few available, and I haven't seen any under $150,000 that are well cut and a good color in the size you want.

    May I suggest you look at radiant cut diamonds as well.
    Radiant cuts tend to have a lot more brilliance compared to Asscher cut diamonds.
    I can ask my diamond dealer friends if anything is available in Radiant or Asscher cut if you like?

    Radiant cuts have been out of fashion for years, and are cheaper because of that, and while yes, they have a faster scintillation pattern they look NOTHING like the stone the OP posted.

    Try searching rarecarat.com most of the stones being suggested to you, even though from different stores come from the same database. Not unusual to see the same stone listed by two different stores at two different prices. For example right now on rarecarat.com there is a GIA 7.03 Asscher cut J VVS2 11.55x11.03x6.66. Enchanted Diamonds shows it for $140,550 while Adiamor shows the very same stone for $138,312. You can manipulate your search to get the most of what you want in your budget. Hope this helps.
