Hello! My fiancé purchased a ring that I am not pleased with (it's a modern round brilliant with a depth of 66.3%). The jeweler said we can exchange it for a new one and that he can purchase any stone from James Allen. I need help determining which stones within my price point are worth purchasing. My fiancé paid $5,800 for the ring, but I can do $6,100 MAX. My current diamond is a 1.04 carat VS2 G color. I love everything about it except the depth. I am willing to sacrifice clarity and color for a larger stone (1.2 carat max), but I definitely do not want a stone with a spread of less than 6.3mm. Preferably I would like 6.45, and I don't wan't lower than a .94 carat. As far as color goes, I really don't want to go below I unless it's over 1.1 carat. When it comes to certifications, I am a rookie. I just want to make sure this time around we get an ideal cut stone that is incredibly brilliant and doesn't have inclusions near the table that can be seen with the naked eye. PLEASE help me and show me examples that are good contenders!!!
