Still in the process of ring shopping. The setting is taken care of. The center stone is where it becomes a problem. Ideally I''d like a 1 carat round color F with no visable inclusions. A peerless or other ideal cut is a must. My boyfriend and I have discussed it and buying it online is NOT an option for us. I''m not sure whether to compromise on color, size, or try an excellent or ideal cut instead of the peerless we had looked at. Our ideal budget for just the center stone would be about $5000. Any ideas?
