Hi all - I have been reading for a few days and thought I would throw in my dilemma.

I have 3 diamonds in mind and they are all just different enough to leave me feeling confused. I know that I do not have all the stats that the experts on this board prefer, but I am hoping you can point me to my next step.

#1 1.09 ctw D SI1 VG/VG $7200 Stand alone B&M Jeweler

#2 1.04 ctw G VS2 EXC/EXC $5500 Online Dealer

#3 1.01 ctw H VS1 Good/Good Table 58% Depth 61.9% $7650 Stand alone B&M Jeweler

I feel like I am all over the map here.
Can anybody help me out?? Thanks!!!

Well, number three is a bit overpriced. Also, with good/good and 58% table, you are not getting an AGS0.
I like #2... BUT, as you said, you'va given very little info's so we can't help that muchhh. What about a Sarin?

I'm with Giangi, not enough info but so far the online deal seems best.

On-line's your best bet -- I'd agree
Just check on their return policy

Make sure the vendor will treat you right
Keep getting advice from those on this site!

PS...ditto to the sarin
It's something they should do
To guarentee their goods to you!

Here are a few more options to rival the online one you found. These come complete with cert copies, closeups of the stone, Hearts and Arrows images, Sarin reports and possibly other information (IdealScope images). All of these are AGS 0 Hearts and Arrows and a few may be 'SuperIdeal'. For the SAME PRICE or LESS than the most expensive stone you posted. The B&M prices you posted are ridiculously high..I would PASS on those and definitely buy online.

To search for yourself, click on CUT QUALITY on the homepage of Pscope, put in your parameters and search. It uses the HCA scores to pull only the diamonds that score under 2.0 in EX range.

There are a bunch more besides those. Also check out www.goodoldgold.com because Jonathan has alot of stones around the 1c range in your budget.
