Hello all,
I've been on this journey to find the right diamond to propose with and this forum has been exceedingly helpful. I recently moved overseas so diamond shopping has been a bit of a strange process for me. Most of the stores I have been to do not have a selection of diamonds to show me so I have no real visual reference for the minute differences between the 4 Cs. From all that I've learned here I've been putting my focus on finding the right cut and I'm hoping I've found a winner.

Can anyone give me their thoughts on this diamond especially concerning the cut/ideal scope image? I've been looking at under 1 carat and this definitely fits my price point which is under 4k. I'm a little concerned about the "I" color of the diamond, is it worth it to spend the money to upgrade to a colorless or even a higher near colorless diamond? Appreciate any thoughts y'all can give me, it's hard going through this process away from home but this forum has helped ease a lot of my concerns about diamond shopping online.

I think it's gorgeous. I think at 80 points I color is great, all you will see is a all that bright light.

Seriously. Great choice.

What setting are you getting?

Finally, are you sure she wants a round? And is happy with the size?

Thank you for the vote of confidence!
I'm positive she wants a round cut, we've done some ring shopping together and while most places don't have anything between .5 and 1 carat, I know that she would be more than happy with the size (as long as it's closer to 1 :lol: ). I would love to get her a 1 carat but finding one that I would feel comfortable giving her would effectively double the cost. Especially now that I have to consider international shipping and customs.

I hope I'm saying this right but I'm looking at getting her a solitary setting with micropave and a milgrain edge. Hope I don't sound like too much of a n00b with how I wrote that. Actually, I don't know why I'm trying to describe it when a picture would explain it much better: http://www.coastdiamond.com/photos/products/zoom/358_0.jpg

Ditto...with the diamond you've selected it will be beautiful. Get it all taken care of in one place. Great choice!
