Hi all,

I have been a long time lurker on this website and I've learn a little about diamonds. Im looking for some help to find the best diamond that I can get that is within my budget and my girlfriend's criteria.

Budget - $3000 - $3500
Carat - 0.9 - 1.0
Cut - Excellent or Ideal
Color - G - I (still deciding whether to put it on a rose gold or white gold setting)
Clarity - Needs to be eye clean

I've been looking mainly at James Allen, Blue Nile, and Whiteflash but cant really decide which diamond to get. I am hoping that someone could help me pick out the best looking diamond.

Thank you in advance!

If you guys have any other recommendations or suggestions, i will be more than happy to hear.

Thank you in advance.

I think you should keep looking. The first one does not appear to be eye-clean and has way to many inclusions in it. The second one
is IGI graded so colorwise it could be lower than the J.

You need to talk to JA about this one since it is an SI1 with clouds...make sure clouds are not affecting it
