Thanks to all of you for such an informative forum. I have not purchased a diamond before and would like your advice on the two diamonds that I have linked below. These both rate highly on the cut adviser. The first one rates as a 1.5 and the second one rates as a 1.2 on the cut adviser. Which one do you think would sparkle the most? I like the fact that the first one is less expensive but is it worth it to pay more for the one carat? Do you think .91 would look like one carat once set? If there is another diamond that you recommend that is under $5K, please include the link. Thanks in advance for any advice that you may have.

Hi diamond,

I would go with the one Julie picked, if eyeclean. It''s bigger, and will be a looker.

The one from niceice is ok too.

The GOG stone is facing up a bit smaller than it should (deep), which isn''t that big of a deal sometimes, but in this case, I figure why pay for that magic number if you''re not visually getting it?

I''d go with the Good Old Gold stone of the first two as it is larger and a hearts and arrows stone. The WF stone Julie mentioned is even a little larger and is a very good price. The .91 stone would be great for someone who has a limit of $4000. But with a budget of up to $5000, I''d choose between the other two.
