Hi everyone! I am investing in my first pair of diamond studs, and I need help. I've been on the hunt for 0.8tcw-0.9tcw, H-I, SI or more matching stones that cost no more than $1300usd for awhile now. I have found these two loose stones that have met my criteria and would like your opinion. Unfortunately the second diamond does not have a photo. I have requested for video/photo but it will take awhile. I've reached my usage limit on the HCA tool so I am unable to provide those stats. Hopefully someone out there will be able to look these up for me?

Anyways, please let me know your opinion. Or If you have any other matching diamonds that you would recommend. Thank you.

The numbers on the stones look good. One does have 80% lower halves while the other has 75% lower halves which
can affect the width of the arrows. 80 - thinner... 75 wider, fatter. You didnt post a pic of the second stone. Can you
get the links then put the stones on hold so we can see them up-close?

Unfortunately, they’re both sold :(
I didn’t know that you can place it on hold. Will definitely keep that in mind.

My hunt resumes...

Maybe check out Ivy and Rose or if you know you are going to upgrade in the future, check Whiteflash and high performance diamonds and Brian Gavin diamonds since they have such easy upgrade policies.

b2c jewels is also a good place to look

Thank you, @whitewave. Wish I could purchase Brian Gavin and Whiteflash diamonds but they are out of my price range, plus I will not be upgrading these diamonds.

I have found these following 60/60 stones (although I am clueless as to if these really are) and would love anyone's opinion that are familiar with these proportions. From the video, I find them quite beautiful.

Diamonds 1 and 2 are from James Allen. As I am situated in Australia, returns will not be free. Diamonds 3 and 4 are from BlueNile. Please let me know which pair would be worth purchasing, or if I should continue my search. Thank you in advance :) Also, I was unable to post the links, but I have included the stock number.

Diamond 1: James Allen - SKU 9117661
