Hi, I'm a newbie here and in need for some advise.
I'm choosing an engagement ring and have decided on this diamond from Whiteflash.
1.072 ct H VS2
Here are the specs:
table 56%
Depth 61.6%
Crown Angle: 34.4
Pavilion angle: 40.8
Star: 50
Lower girdle:78

I have to say I'm a bit obsessed about true heart diamonds, I know Whiteflash holds high regards for there A Cut Above diamonds, I just want to make sure if there are red flags or anything i need to worry about for this diamond since i'm paying a premium for their cut.
Thanks in advance for helping me.

Very nice, seriously. Fantastic stone. You realize you won't be able to see the hearts when it's set right?

Thank you Gypsy, I'm aware that i won't be able to see the heart once its set.
This diamond costs just under $8000, wonder if its a good deal.

What style setting does your lady want for the setting?

She is a simple person, and I know she will prefer smaller band.

My personal favorite is Vatche swan

I was thinking it goes with the 1ct diamond.

For the 1.3ct i might have to change to a cheaper setting:
like is classic 4 prong:

on a second thought about the settings, it might makes more sense the other way around, but budget is getting tight... any suggestions?

Thanks for helping, appreciate the input.

Does she want a flush fit wedding band? Because the Swan doesn't allow that.

I really like the Legato. It's my favorite at Whiteflash, honestly. So I would go for the 1.3 with the Legato.

Of the all the Vatche settings I like the Caroline best.

I am a bit worried about the SI Clarity for that 1.3ct diamond.
I might go with the 1 ct + legato pave?
Unless there's another 1.3ct diamond that fits my budget.
Whiteflash have awesome customer service!

Are you Persian, perchance?

Sorry I'm a first time diamond buyer. I've read all your suggestions on PS, yet I still can't help and think i can see the inclusion with naked eye.
I'm not Persian btw lol.

Oh. Maymoon means monkey in Farsi. So I thought you might be.

Listen, you are spending a lot of money, you need to feel comfortable.

Can you ask your lady what her preferences are? Is size her top priority or something else?

She's the one wearing it, so her opinion matters a lot.
