by ryan516 » Feb 6, 2017 Hello Rocky Talk Friends, The search has begun for a 1.5-1.7 carat oval diamond. I have set a budget of 12k for the diamond. With GOG being local, I would like some other online references prior to making a purchase in-person. At 1.7, I am hoping for a h-g color with a vs1 clarity in the 12k range. Below are some of the diamonds I have been looking at. http://www.whiteflash.com/loose-diamonds/oval-cut-loose-diamond-3792834.htm Max end of budget http://www.goodoldgold.com/diamond-search/1.70-Oval-SELECT-GIA-H-VVS1-diamond-stock-15132-cert- https://www.jamesallen.com/loose-diamonds/oval-cut/1.57-carat-g-color-vvs2-clarity-sku-2402628 As you can see, my search has been closer to the 1.7 range. Could someone please provide some feedback on the diamonds posted above. Am I headed in the right direction? Quality and cut are obviously are important so if someone thinks a quality 1.7 at 12k is implausible please let me know. Thank you for any feedback.
