After what has seemed like a loooong search, I have successfully narrowed my choices down to two diamonds! Yay! :appl:

I am fairly committed to BGD because they are the only ones I can find with a setting that I know my girlfriend will love - the classic truth (I have very specific details haha).

Initially I was looking at:
0.544ct, H, SI1 eye-clean
http://www.briangavindiamonds.com/diamond/diamond-detail/?product_id=AGS-104051366051
Dimensions: 5.23x5.26mm
$1810

However I recently came across:
0.504, F, SI1 eye-clean
http://www.briangavindiamonds.com/diamond/diamond-detail/?product_id=AGS-104052884022
Dimensions: 5.14x5.20mm
$1899

I'm assuming the size difference won't be noticeable (especially when not in a direct comparison and once mounted).
The carat weight is a little less on the 2nd one, but it's a bump up to F from H. I was told the H faces up very white (due to its ideal cut). I would have thought going up to an F color would cost more - I guess it's limited due to the drop in weight? Since it's still a comparable size (I'm not planning on trying to resell so the actual weight isn't a huge issue) does this look to be a good deal? $90 seems like a small amount to pay to get to an F. Is the F priced lower than I would expect due to due to sometime beside carat weight that I should be concerned with or does this seem typical? A good deal? Probably (not) worth it? I don't see many differences in the diamonds but I'm no expert! I'm so excited! :love: Just having trouble picking... recommendations?

For that marginal price difference I would go with the F. Also have you considered putting those stones on hold for you? Often a great stone will get swiped by someone else after they are put up on here. It would be a shame to loose either stone if you have your heart set on either. Good luck!

Funny, the rep. I am speaking with's name is Jamie C. ;-)

I'm thinking I'm going to go ahead with the F. I've been looking at them for a while and have no reason to delay anymore.

I think either one is a great choice. If the F is eye-clean to your standards then go for it! and please post pictures of the ring once you get it :)

Absolutely! I'm giddy with excitement haha. :appl: :love:

Is it standard practice on PS to post pictures in the same tread (here) where it was discussed or in the Show Me The Bling area?
