Hello, I am searching for a diamond on White Flash with a budget of around $4500-$5500. Since this purchase will be made online without ever seeing the stone, I would like it to have VS2 clarity unless you guys think I can find an SI1 that is pretty eye clean. As far as carat goes, somewhere along the range of 0.90+ ct would be fine. I know 1+ ct is where it starts to get even more expensive. For cut, I would like Excellent. Color: G-I. Any recommendations would be helpful.

What do you guys think of this diamond?

Thank you, MissGotRocks. That diamond is lovely. Even though it is slightly more than I intended, it looks like it may be worth it. On the other hand, If I were to lower the budget of the diamond to about $3500-$4500, what specs would you guys recommend in this price range instead?

I think this is the next biggest one that is eye-clean and it is a G...

They also say this is eye-clean but I would prefer to stay a little cleaner so I didnt recommend this one for you

If you dont mind stepping down to an "I" you can gain a little size...this is an expert selection...eye-clean

Thank you everyone for the suggestions. I have decided to go with a 0.9+ ct after all and have changed my budget to around $5500-$6500. I would like to stay close to 1 ct but not 1+ ct.

MissGotRocks recommended this diamond:

This diamond is great but I am not sure if it is worth getting a ACA instead of an Expert Selection diamond.
As far as color goes, the price for G and H are not too different at this size.. will I notice a difference since it is round diamond to begin with? The setting will be in platinum.

I'm having a hard time trying to figure out if I should go down on some of the 4 C's in order to get a bigger carat.. what do you guys recommend for a budget around $5500-$6500?

Thank you.

With that budget, you are still in the .90 range in G-H VS2-SI1 stones. There are about 10 ACAs that have those specs and they range from about $5800-6500. I don't think you can go wrong with any of them.

This is the lowest priced one at $5800.

Or you can go to a G or H VS2:
