Right now I''m looking at this diamond for my girlfriend''s engagement ring:
Diamond 1
1.01 carat, SI1, H, AGS000 ~ $4700

It scored Ex/Ex/Ex/Vg in HCA, with a score of 1.3.

I like the white color of an F diamond, but cannot afford to go much higher than H or G.

Thoughts about this stone? Should I make any sacrifices? I love the sparkle of the Jared Peerless, Hearts-on-Fire, etc. and I''m trying to get as close to that as possible for around $4700.

Thanks!
Brian

Looks good. Call BN to put it on hold fast before someone snatch it away. And ask them to check if it is eye-clean.

I just called them and they said they will put it on hold for 48 hours. Man I love them.

It looks promising by the numbers, get someone at BN to check carefully that the diamond is eyeclean to your standards.

I contacted Blue Nile again and they sent me an email after checking with their supplier saying that the stone has been confirmed as eye-clean.

Looks like the stone scored even better than I thought, at a 1.2 in HCA. I guess I screwed up the measurements before.


Looks like all that''s left is to order it and hope for the best!

A lower number on the HCA isn''t better. The HCA is just to eliminate the poorly cut stones. Above 2 is usually suspect.

Looks like you have a nice one.

I got the stone today. It''s gorgeous. I ended up getting an additional 3% off by going through FatWallet.com, so the total was around $4560, which I think is an awesome price for this diamond!

I''m so glad I didn''t fall for buying an IGI 1c, gd/gd, G, SI1/2 at Jared''s for $5300.
