by 00quad » Jun 28, 2019 Hello My partner and I have been looking for a diamond for an engagement ring for a few weeks. We have seen quite a few stones of various grades and have a good grasp on the colour/size/clarity combinations we want. We are now trying to make a final decision. We have been drawn to one diamond and it is appears to be a good deal, but I am slightly unsure due to the Certification it has(HRD). Here in Australia everyone uses or recommends to only buy GIA certification and we've mostly been presented with these. We aren't concerned with this particular stones clarity or cut(rated at triple excellent and SI2 but a clean table), which we are happy with, only that the colour grading is comparable with GIA. When compared with other diamonds my partner has been drawn to this stone repeatedly and it appears to be the same colour to us when looking at it side by side with GIA G diamonds. When next to F and H stones it also appears to be in between them in colour. However, we are new to this and want to be sure of our decision and if we are paying a fair price from the diamond merchant. Also what would be the rough price range of a stone like this? Just so i know im not get taken for a ride. I've seen the stone a few times now but don't have the HRD number or certificate, below are the details I have: 2.09 G SI2 8.11/8.16*5.10 Thanks for any advice!
