I am in the process of upgrading my center stone, right know I have 2.02 radiant J SI2 and have on hold a 3c Princess I SI1 which @ $6200.00 more.

Is this 1 carat. color, clarity & cut upgrade worth it, my DH is wrestling with this and I need help convincing him:)

Input PLEASE! Any honest replies would be appreciated.

I was gonna upgrade to a 2.68 radiant for about the same price but they sold it.

I would make sure it''s what you really want. If what you wanted was a radiant, I would wait for one that I really liked instead of just purchasing a princess. However, if what you want is a princess than that''s another story. I really can''t tell whether the price is worth it based on so few information, but the jump from a 2 carat to a 3 carat is large and 6k doesn''t sound that large.

color/clarity alone would not be worth it to me because you can''t really see a difference there. for me to shell out $$$ i would want to see a SIZE difference (not just weight!)

Belle,

I went to see it and it is noticable size different, and actually a noticable color difference to me and hubby.

It''s not a squarish princess, it''s shaped more like a radiant which is why I like it.

I think the measurements are 8.28 x 7.11 x 5.57, my current measurements are 7.86 X 6.30 X (?) I Don''t remember the last part.

Yeah, that mm difference is huge. You would notice it. But is the faceting of the princess what you want? I understand that the size and shape are what you want. Very important. But when you look down at the stone you will notice the facet pattern. Is it what you want?

Stonehunter,

The princess stone was beautiful, and yes I did like the facet look of the princess. I am just trying to convince my DH the $6200.00 is worth it.
