I was thinking that, but I was hoping someone would say something else lol. Especially since a lot of newer members are popping up.

yeah thats a tough one - because obviously cut is a non-negotiable, so given that fact perhaps it would be more worthwhile to remove cut from the list and see what's most important to people of the other Cs.

I voted cut of course, but that said there are so many caveats on what kind of diamond i would and would not purchase that its hardly the determining factor, a combination of factors make the decision. For example, i wouldnt purchase a stone that wasnt a step-cut or an AVC. And carat is important too because i probably wouldnt want to go under a carat for an EC. And in an AVC id be happy with a much warmer colour than in a stepcut...and price is important too of course!!

i wonder if anyone will dare to say something other than cut? :bigsmile: i was tempted to say carat or shape to be honest!

I'm wondering too? For me it is cut, clarity, carat, color. Before Pricescope I thought cut was shape :oops:

CUT, of course and since we're on PS.

After that, colour and then clarity. I see size or budget as a constraint.

Again, shape is not an alternate to the other criteria, more of something I'd choose deliberately first subject to the budget contraint, and then I choose cut, colour and clarity. But most of my diamonds are RB's (and I own pears, OEC's and cushions too); and I'm aspiring to have an Octavia and AVC.

Before being educated on PS of course I would have said carat weight. Now my priorities are cut, color, carat, clarity. My current e-ring stone is .70, G, SI2 oval. Purchased around the same time I discovered PS, but after the return period. Thus, I did not obtain IS, ASET, or digital photos to determine the cut quality. To my eyes it is white, sparkly, I enjoy wearing it everyday....
