So i have been lurking for a little while now. But the time has come to pick out a diamond for my girl. The budget is $1600 for the diamond and so i figured somewhere around .6 ct would be where i will end up. The diamond is going into a solitaire setting and i would like it to be eye clean. So far these are what i was looking at, though i get a little lost looking at all the diamonds and would appreciate any help i can get.

Both of those look like nice choices.

You can ask WF if the stone is eyeclean to your specifications, whatever they are (clean from 6" face-up? from 12"? from the sides as well?) and they will be able to check it over for you. The size difference between the two will be unnoticeable, esp. once set, so the question becomes whether you'd prefer a diamond that shows clear hearts and arrows patterns or a higher colour :sun:

I'd rather have the H color IF it is eyeclean and they can place a prong where that inclusion is.

tyty I was just going to link that diamond:) I think it would be an amazing choice for a ring, the price is great, and there are trade-in options down the line. mostly though, I just think it is a great stone at a great price!
