I finally have a setting I like now I have to pick a stone. My key requirements are basic I think. Looks nice, no obvious blemishes, sparkles a lot. I have found one I think fits the bill but I would like to know your thoughts. The one I am considering is here: http://www.eternitydiamonds.com/diamond_detail.php?id=531181.... If you are interested in the setting I have included a copy of the render. Let me know what your thoughts are. Thanks!

The stone looks OK, it is a 60/60 type cut. Depending on rounding in the GIA report, it might be better or worse. Can eternity diamonds give you a photo of ideal scope of the diamond?

Are you working with this vendor already or open to other suggestions?

I would request asset images of the GIA stones, The E AGS stone looks like a really nice stone by the images and clarity plots.

Ditto - numbers are fine, more info/pics would help confirm but I don't believe ED provides so your best bet is to have it shipped out to see in-person, and make sure that you love it :))

Besides James Allen, I'd take a look at WhiteFlash and Brian Gavin. My ring stone came from Good Old Gold, so I would highly recommend them as well, but their inventory of rounds is a little low at the moment. WF, BG, and GOG all have much better trade-in policies and more personal service as far as discussing their in-house stones with you.
