by msw2b » Jan 15, 2019 Hi!! I'm getting married next month and as of yet I'm ring less! We have a budget and I've just been down a rabbit hole of wishy washy. I'm not diamond educated enough to be confident in my choices. Can you help me? Here's where I am at: Our budget is $15k for the diamond. And I'm stuck between 2 settings. I started off at Whiteflash and their ACAs because I really love their butterflies setting. https://www.whiteflash.com/engageme...-butterflies-diamond-engagement-ring-1288.htm I love how swoopy everything is. But then I was questioning if the 6 prongs would be too much metal showing. So then I'm looking at their trellis setting. https://www.whiteflash.com/engageme...tone-trellis-diamond-engagement-ring-1427.htm I was looking at a 1.5 G SI1 ACA but I'm told it has been sold. I am looking at 1.5+ because a 4 is bad luck in my culture and my FI is quite superstitious. And a G color because I am a little bit color sensitive. For reference I have a 1.10 GIA J color diamond so I figure G would be ok. But then I saw the expert selection and I like this one even though it's an H color. https://www.whiteflash.com/loose-diamonds/round-cut-loose-diamond-4042793.htm After that, I started looking at other super ideal brands and I found CIH diamonds by Victor Canera. These 2 are on my list now. https://www.victorcanera.com/diamonds/wqfnen-1.527-g-si1-ideal-hearts-arrows-round https://www.victorcanera.com/diamonds/ags104093675002-1.500-g-si1-ideal-hearts-arrows-round But I'm wondering if it would be silly to do 2 different vendors. As you can see I am all over the place. Please help!
