I''ve narrowed down my choices to 2 round, brilliant diamonds:

WH: 1.112 ct G VS2 A Cut Above H&A
http://whiteflash.com/hearts_arrows/A-Cut-Above-H-A-cut-diamond-179742.htm
HCA = 1.1

GOG: 1.14ct G VS2 Round H&A
http://goodoldgold.com/diamond/2692
HCA = 1.6

People have mentioned "IS discount", and I assume this is the bank wire price.

I have also noticed that many opinions in this forum have steered people away from BlueNile.com. Others have mentioned that "a better value and diamond for your money" can be obtained from GOG, WH, or JA, instead of BlueNile. Certainly, it is more of a gamble, and perhaps a disadvantage to not be able to view idealscope images before purchasing, as is the case on BN.

I made a similar post several days ago. Thanks to boston_jeff, Kelkel, and oldminer for your comments.

Thank you!

Both of these stones are lovely, I guess I''d go for the GOG stone since it''s cheaper and faces up a *tad* larger (probably not noticeable to the naked eye). Both vendors are great, so that doesn''t really matter.

The PS discount is sometimes just the bankwire discount, and other times it''s an extra 2% with the bankwire price, usually it ends up being about 5%...but this varies from vendor to vendor.

BN is a fine place to buy a diamond. They have great inventory and prices. However, the reason I don''t buy from them is that they don''t have an upgrade policy. I''m a person who likes the option of changing her mind and upgrading with time...so this factors in big time for me.
