Hi Everyone,

I''m new to this, so please excuse the ignorance. Can someone explain to me why there is such a noticable price difference between the following 2 stones? Stone 1 is $6100 and stone 2 is $6900. I debated for a while and ended up getting Stone 1. I just want to get the peace of mind that I made the right decision. Does it look like a good deal?

Thanks!

not enough information.

But, relax. How do you like your stone?

Ditto, where were the diamonds for sale? Many reasons why the prices can vary including the type of seller and other factors. Looks like you picked a nice diamond!

I like the diamond. The diamonds were actually from 2 separate vendors. The more expensive one being at Blue Nile and the cheaper one at Mondera. I had a hard time deciding if I wanted to go over 1 carat. But based on some other comments, it seems a nice cut between .9 and 1 carat is just as impressive as a 1 carat+ diamond that isn''t well cut. So I settled with getting less than 1 carat. It''s more within my budget.
