Been scouring the internet and have gone through hundreds of loose diamonds. I had 2 that caught my eye and was wondering if the community here could give me their opinion on these. I've been somewhat obsessed with the HCA tool and getting the lowest number possible knowing full well it won't tell the full story of the diamond.

and

Both are on the upper tier of what I'm willing to spend but one has a higher clarity and 1/4 more carat at about the same price. I know the mystique behind CBI diamonds warrants the premium price but was wondering what everyone's thoughts were? Lastly suggestions for diamonds would also be helpful. Thanks!

Also check out Brian Gavin Diamonds - they are having a promotion on their signature stones - up to 8% off, as well as a sale on settings. Good luck.

I would also contact ID Jewelry and speak to Yekutiel - he is very good at finding a beautiful stone to match your budget.

Thank you Queenie and Telephone!

Unfortunately there is only 1 BGS in my budget. The rest haven't been released but the 8% should help tremendously!

So looking over the WF ACA's was wondering what your opinion on these

Compared to the original HPF diamond. Would the upgrade in color warrant the downgrade in clarity?

Thanks in advance!

I do not have the expertise to comment on stones - hopefully the experts will chime in - Gypsy, DS, Tyty, and all others??

Good luck to you , hope you find the stone you're looking for.

Yes. I'd take the biggest of those. They are all great. And yes, it is worth to go down in clarity, while still staying eyeclean, and go up in color.
