Hi All,

I am currently in the process of selecting a round diamond for use in an engagement ring. I have been doing as much research as possible using this website, so thank you all for the extremely useful information which has been posted here!

My criteria had been to get a stone around 0.9 -1carat, around VS2 clarity with the best possible cut and colour and a budget around $5000 or so.

I’ve used the search tool on this website and hopefully narrowed down my search to a couple of contenders. If anyone could give any feedback on which looks best (if either) that would be much appreciated!

Can you put these stones on hold and provide the links. The numbers are a bit questionable so it would help to see the
stones. I guess there are no aset or idealscope images for the stones?

Thanks for your replies!

That was the one I was favouring and potentially going to purchase until I came across the following:

Would I be right in thinking the sacrifice of the colour (originally was looking at G upwards) would be worth the slightly better cut of this one?

That's a personal choice, so hard to say whether you'll notice H color or be bothered by it. For me, this cut would be worth dropping to H in color because IMHO the cut is better than the others you were considering.
