Vatche U-113 Tiffany Setting and Looking for Diamond

Hi, everyone. Thank you for taking the time to read this post. I have been trying to find a close replica of the original Tiffany setting and after looking at countless posts on pricescope, I have started to lean towards the Vatche U113 platinum setting. If you think there is a better option, any opinions are greatly appreciated.

Now I am trying to find the best location to buy the Vatche U113 setting and the diamond. I am looking on White Flash at the moment. Would you recommend buying both the setting and diamond together there or buy the setting there and then find the diamond on a different website with more options? Which store should I have the setting and diamond put together at? This will be my first diamond I have ever purchased so any advice would be very helpful. This is the information that I've gathered so far that I am looking for in a diamond:

Round
Carat - 1
Color - G or H (Have some wiggle room here since cut/clarity are more important)
Clarity - VS2 (I will be buying the diamond most likely through a website so I will be unable to see the diamond itself in person. I don't want to risk having a diamond that is not eye clean. VS1 seems unnecessary.)
Cut - GIA Excellent (Cut is the most important)

Additional Guidelines I found here on PriceScope:
depth: 60-62%
table 54-57%
crown angle: 34-35 degrees
pavilion angle: 40.6-41 degrees (sometimes 41.0 if the crown angle is close to 34)
girdle: avoid extremes, look for thin to slightly thick, thin to medium etc.
Polish: Very good + above
Symmetry: Very good + above

Can anyone help me find some diamonds with the information I've shared?

What is your budget for the stone and setting? That will help people. Absent that, have you looked at HighPerformanceDiamonds? They sell CraftedbyInfinity diamonds and are fantastic. I'm not sure if Wink can get Vatche settings or has something similar, but he's really helpful and quick to reply. I've seen several around 1 carat in person recently and they were pretty amazing. :love:

Sorry, for the late response and thank you for posting rockysalamander. I would like to purchase both the setting and diamond together to make it easier. That is why White Flash is one of the websites on my list. As far as budget goes.. the setting seems to be about $1700-$1800 in different places for the vatche u113.. the diamond I'm looking to spend somewhere around $4500-$5500.

When looking for diamonds in White Flash, I am not seeing many options for In-House diamonds.. but there are many Virtual diamonds. I noticed the Virtual diamonds don't have specifications for Crown Angle, Pavilion Angle etc.. should I buy in-house or virtual? Can anyone can help me find some diamonds on WF or even another website where I can buy both the setting/diamond?

Those specs are almost impossible at $5,500 without going for stones with strong blue fluorescence. Be open to Si1 and you might be able to get an H. There will be no in house vetted stones at all at that price in those specs.

This was on my short list but I picked a G SI1 over it. I even have the idealscope posted in my thread. it's still over your budget, but this was probably the best priced H VS2 on JA and has AGS000. I think you can get a cheaper Tiffany style setting on JA to make up the difference.

1.0c H VS2 at 5.5k is not impossible. I notice the market is slightly down recently.

I don't know if B2C carries Vatche or similar settings.

I also like the JA stone realazy posted.
