We are very lucky to be working with an independent B and M vendor here in the Uk for my ering. He has two certified stones for me to choose from and I am just confused. The first is 1.03 ct, J colour and VVS1 clarity, the second is 1.25 cts, F colour and I1 clarity (this looks eye clean to me with little bits of floating glass when seen through the loupe). They are both the same price at the equivalent of $4800. This is a seriously good price here, where you would pay three times that on the high street and I feel it equates with online vendors before paying the taxes to import so I am happy in that respect. My dilema is which stone, do I sacrifice clarity for size, or go with the crystal clear stone, that shows no colour to my eye at all. My fiance thinks the smaller because he thinks it looks nicer, but I feel a bit obsessed by the size. Do you think it will be that much bigger when set?
