It is hard to tell from just the specs. Do you have any pictures of the stone?

March, out of curiosity, where are you looking for stones? How much were you quoted for that stone? I am looking at something around your range, and am curious so that we can compare notes.

Hi Charmy, I am about to pull the trigger on the 1.11 perry cushion. I wanted your input on the color. Perry says that the I faces up as well as some H colors that he has sold and it is beautiful. Mark at ERD originally told me to go I or better and not get a J like I was originally looking at. Now that he knows I am interested in an I, he says that he would only go H or better. Doesn't make much sense to me (seems like he may be trying to make me a sale). He offered me a .90 H/Si1 for $3,800, but for only a little bit more I can get a for sure eye clean si1 in I color that is 1.11 carats. I am very sure on this diamond, but just want to be certain before I go through with it all. Also, what is your experience with customer service/payment/returns at Leon Mege?

can you post your budget? also where are you looking for cushions? I would recommend GOG and ERD to start looking.

thanks for the replies,
some clarification, 1 is I- I was rushing when I typed it.
the max I want to spend on a diamond is $6500, does anyone think I can go a bit bigger then 1 carat without compromising too much and stay within my budget???


and currently I'm working with Perry from Leon Megé.

I"m so nervous that I'm gonna get a stone then not like it or find something about it that I don't like. I'm only 3 or 4 hours from NYC so I might just have to take a trip there..but I wanted to do that for the setting.... ugh so many things to think about.

New Ring dude: that stone was quoted $5600 or 5500 i gotta double check my emails.

Do you like this AVC? I just did a quick search on gog's website.
I think Perry can source very nice cushions and has for many pser's but I would also check with ERD and GOG to see if they can find something better for your budget. Regardless all 3 stores have a return policey so you should be set regardless.

And I'm not sure if it matters but find out about their upgrade policys. I think GOG has the best upgrade options out there currently.

$5,300 for a .92ct cushion.
