I am looking to purchase one of the following diamonds. I am currently looking at Blue Nile (I was very happy with the other items that I bought, but I have never bought a diamond from them before). I also like that Blue Nile is offering 90 days interest free with large purchased items.


I was wondering if some of you experts out there could voice your opinions.



Here are the following diamonds that I am looking at. I am on a tight budget and I would like to get the most for my money.

1, 3, and 4 look promising from the numbers, but I''d call BN about the clarity, and make sure that they are eye clean. I''d definitely pass on #2.

Thank you for all of your advice. I called Blue Nile and they said that diamond 1 was eye clean, and I decided to purchase it. We''ll have to see what it looks like in person now!
