Hi guys (and girls). I''ve been reading this forum from time to time for a while (as well as other places on the net), trying to educate myself as much as possible on purchasing a diamond/engamentment ring. I was hoping to get some advice from you guys on what i should be looking for in a loose diamond. Here is what I had in mind. I''m looking for a princess cut diamond. Around 1 Carat. I was looking between F and H color, and between VS1 and SI2 clarity. I have read that cut is the most important as far as how the diamond looks, so i''m looking for as good of a cut as I can get. I''m not looking to spend more than $5k, but can if I need to. Any suggestions on what to look for? Im pretty good at looking for the basic parameters, but when it comes to Table %, and Depth, etc....i''m kind of lost. I''ve looked at the vendors on this site some (Whiteflash, GOG, James Allen, etc...) as well as Union Diamond, and Blue Nile. All seem to be similar in price, though one might be higher on one diamond, and one on another, but it''s the details i''m not sure about. So again I ask. If anyone has any tips or suggestions, i''m all ears (or eyes as it were). Thanks in advance.
