I''m thinking of buying a very small diamond from bluenile (~.25ct) , so there are no pictures etc. The specs check out on the HCA (1.3, TIC) and it is GIA excellent. It is also a VS1 clarity and the price is very good...

I don''t want to post too many specifics for fear of lurkers snatching it up


Would you call them to get more information or would that satisfy you? Can I be certain that it is eye-clean based on the VS1 label? I am planning to set it into a titanium tension setting from Bruce Boone as an anniversary present for my husband, so it needs to be eye-clean!

I''m pretty sure in that size, most S1''s are going to be eye clean so no worries with a VS1 at all.

I really like the idea of a tension set pendant, but am wondering if the culet could possibly scratch the neck?

TIC GIA Ex which has been looked over by you Dreamer = no worries! If you want, just post the usual and the specs you entered for the HCA, then we can take a look


As Elle says, I wouldn't worry with VS1 .25 for eyecleanliness.

Elle it is actually for a tension set ring for my husband, so no worries about necks being scratched!

Lorelei Good vote of confidence! LOL!

Hmmm... so if SIs are eye-clean, then I can maybe go down in clarity and buy some size... would a VS2 be eye-clean at .30ct do you think? Still 0.8 HCA and TIC, GIA Ex.

Tis justified m'dear!


VS2 should be eyeclean at .30 if you want to consider that, results sound fine.

How about this one?

I color, VS2, 1.8 HCA and GIA excellent... but with *strong florescence*

Makes the price right and I know lots of us around here love the florescence. What effect would that have on a little diamond like this?

Looks good, you could notice a violety glow in some lighting which is way kewl in my opinion!
