Hello, I'm in desperate need of some advice. We are in the process of choosing my engagement ring and my boyfriend asked me to pick my center diamond (yey!). He's working with Whiteflash and all I know about the ring that it is made of rose gold. My budget is about 6k and these are the ones I've been looking at:
http://www.whiteflash.com/loose-diamonds/round-cut-loose-diamond-3635953.htm I VS2 1.001ct ~6400$
http://www.whiteflash.com/loose-diamonds/round-cut-loose-diamond-3597934.htm J VS2 0.966ct ~5050$
http://www.whiteflash.com/loose-diamonds/round-cut-loose-diamond-150441.htm J SI1 1.034ct ~5400$

Just looking at the pictures and video I like the first one the best but I'm wondering if I would notice any difference if I saw these in person? Is the first one worth the bigger price tag? I like the size (6.49x6.51x3.99) of the last one but I'm a little worried about the inclusions even though it is eye clean. Or if you have a better option than these 3 please feel free to suggest :) I'd be very greatful for any input!

Oh and I'm sorry for any spelling/other errors I may have made, English isn't my first language :)

They are all lovely stones. You can't go wrong with an ACA. As for the SI1 stone, you need to talk to Whiteflash and ask them to evaluate the stone and describe to you their definition of eye clean. Usually when they put the eye clean stamp, it's clean to the naked eye. The I stone is higher priced due to the step up in color grade. Have you compared colors in person? Just to be sure that you are ok with the possible warmth of the J stones. Good luck to you - hope you find the perfect stone. :wavey:

I agree 100% with what Queenie60 said. ACA are fabulous diamonds. The only thing I would check on is if you are happy with the warmth you'll see in a J stone. Have you looked at an I and J stone in person?

Thank you marcy and Queenie60! Unfortunately I live in a place where I couldn't find diamonds that were graded by GIA or AGS or actually any surely well cut stones at all but I've done some really extensive research for a while now and I'm pretty sure I'll like the warmth especially if set in rose gold :)
