Hey guys/gals,

I have been reading through the forums for weeks now and have picked up on some important things. I am hoping someone out there can help me pick out a diamond from bluenile, whiteflash, or whereever it might be!

My criteria I am looking for -
* roughly $5,000 for the diamond
* Must be 1 ct
* princess cut
* G-H or better


Now me just looking at the certificate bluenile provides, I have no way of knowing how brilliant it might be. I like whiteflash due to the fact you can see the diamond you are buying but it seems you pay a premium over there. With the criteria I have set, is there a diamond over at BN within reach that you think would show up brilliant to my doorstep??

The setting is going to be a solitaire - white gold - cathedral. She has giving me hints on wanting it a princess cut, cathedral, and white gold - the rest was up to me and this is going to be a huge surprise when this comes together! She thinks I am years out from asking her the question - we have been together for 3.5 years. I can''t wait!!

So what do you guys see out there? Or point me in the correct direction? I have been to a few local jewelery stores here in town and was not impressed with the diamonds they had.....alot of inclusions - dull - wayyyy overpriced. So looking to press my luck with an online purchase and from the reviews I have read from BN it was worth doing it online.

Anyways, thanks for taking the time to read this and for any help you can throw my way!!

This might be a possibility but need to check it out if eye-clean. It is on hold, so might or might not be available. No harm asking.

Another just slightly under 1c

What about WF''s X-Factor? There are 2 available.

Is I too low a color grade for you?
GOG has one 0.98c I VS2.

BN has an AGS0 I VS1, but looks a little to busy to me with 4 chevrons cut.

That''s all I can find within your budget.

Those are all very nice. Here''s another to consider. 1.045ct D SI2

I want to see photos and have a sales person describe the stone while it''s in their hands. BN doesn''t offer that.

thanks for the quick responses - I took a brief look at the links you provided but my eyes hurt from looking at the screen reading up on diamonds the last 5 hours.......pushing 3 am here and need to be up in less than 4 hours - will look at the links again tomorrow! (I guess later today!)

The diamond above looks great, check it is eyeclean to your standards.

indeedhelp, I ditto Swing above that you work with a vendor who has in house Princess, and even with AGS0 has all the cut analysis done such as ASET and photographs.
