Hey fellow PSers! :wavey:

Like many, I've come to learn a LOT about diamonds just from reading this site and (trying) to follow some of your discussions. It's finally my turn to purchase and I'd love your help. In the past, I've even seen many of you come up with ASETs for folks, which is awesome. You provide a great service.

I'm trying to find a:
-Princess,
-Color: D,
-Clarity: VS2,
-Flouresence: None,
-Weight: .90 and up (ideally a carat, or very near).

My budget for the stone itself is around $5000 (of course, spending less is always welcome), and I already have the setting picked out (platinum setting with 12 .45 carat, handpicked, D colored princess stones - 6 on each side of the main stone). For this reason, I REALLY want/need to stick to D - I'm a big fan of colorless.

Ideally, I'd like to stay away from a thin girdle - in hopes of avoiding any chipping of the stone, so I'd prefer thicker girdles (medium and up).

I'd LOVE your help and, in return, I promise to post a picture of the finished ring!

Thank you!

Here is some from JA you can have their gemologist look at 3 at a time. I would have them check to make sure they are eyeclean and request asset images :twirl:

This one is an E color

This is over budget but it looks like a nice one

You should not be able to see the diff between a D and an E so you could go with an E unless your are set on a D.


Here is another E from WF there would be a pricescope discount

I couldn't find a whole lot with the specs you want right now in your budget, the one from BN looks like a nice option also :twirl:

Thanks a lot for the research so far! I can push on budget a *little* bit, so that $5900 is doable if not a lot else turns up. I'm willing to go just a little below a carat to catch an extra break in price etc. I don't want to vary from VS2 or D though if I can help it - I'm pretty firm on those two specs.

Thanks for your help so far!
