I'm interested in buying a diamond from BGD for an engagement ring, but I'm no expert and would really appreciate some help in determining the quality of this stone.

It's a Brian Gavin Signature with the following specs:

0.757 Carat round
Colour: F
Clarity: VS1
Table: 56.2
Depth: 60.8
Crown: 34.7
Pavillion: 40.7
Culet: Pointed
Florescene: negligible
Girdle: thin to medium faceted

The price is listed at $4,188 and I've currently placed it in hold. Any feedback would be much appreciated!

Beautiful stone! You could go to G VS and get a little larger stone, but if you are happy with the size and specs, this is a nice one!

Thanks for your opinion!

I guess my biggest question or concern, is that they also list several other comparable F VS1 stones, that are actually a bit smaller, but they are all at least $800 more? Any idea why this might be the case? For example, the next cheapest comparable stone is $4967:

On a different note, I have also considered at some other stones in the 0.8 range, but $4000 is the upper limit of my budget, and the best that I could afford in that price range would be something like a 0.81 H VS2 ACA. Given the two choices, which would you pick?

I would pick a larger G Vs2.
