Hi all,

I'm enamored by this princess cut diamond from James Allen. I like the novelty of it being IF clarity, the faceting appeals to me, it's very square, and it seems to face up nicely for its size. It's $1,430 with the PS discount.

This would be the first diamond for a pair of studs. Is it a mistake to get this instead of an ACA princess from WhiteFlash? The ACA gives me more peace of mind that the princess is absolute top of the line cut quality, and they have a better upgrade policy. But this JA princess is still AGS0 and I *think* the ASET looks good, and I've tried different princess studs and really don't think I'd want to upgrade anyway.

I don't need both of them to be IF at all! :) I just think it would be interesting to have one. The other half of the pair could be VS2 and I would be happy. And it seems like the premium isn't so bad - the largest stone I could get for <$1,500 that is AGS0 would be a 0.61 ct diamond from WhiteFlash that doesn't face up much bigger. But maybe I would be better off getting F/G color...
