Hi everyone – me again – I think I’ve found a candidate for my GF’s ring.
5191554526 – GIA number
It seems to tick the boxes from my beginner view – sensible proportions, great color, certainly eye-cleaning, and I couldn’t see the inclusions under magnification until I reviewed the report.
Unfortunately, the shop I work with quoted 10K for this diamond and I realize that comparable diamonds are like 8-8500 …
I feel good about supporting a local business and paying a mild premium so I would request a price of 9K for the diamond. Is this reasonable? Are you looking at negotiations in this industry?
Was shown a diamond from a local mom / pop shop – GIA number included.
1.2 Carat, F, HVAC, ideal conditions, etc.
I got a price in the middle of $ 8000. It seems to be a bit high …. other diamonds online (of similar specifications) appear to give or take (trade color, clarity, fluorescence, etc. at a lower price) and are within 1 to 2k USD of what I was quoted.
I like this rock but wanted to get some thoughts from people who know more than I do. I don’t mind paying a small premium with a local store, but within reason. Thanks in advance.
Hi! I’ve been looking at how to buy quality diamonds for about a month or two now, but often feel overwhelmed. I think I know the basics, but I’ve heard so many different opinions and beliefs.
I heard that IGI inflated the assessment, but then I heard elsewhere that even GIA criteria for mined diamonds can be very different.
I wanted to get some first-hand statements from people who are knowledgeable on the subject. I would really appreciate if you could share what you thought!

Just wanted to write a quick thank you to u / diamond dealer. I came to this wonder looking for diamond advice almost a year ago and he helped me out big time. I have since purchased an engagement ring and two wedding bands from him and couldn’t be more pleased – and neither did my fiance (I had to hide the wedding band for her because she would not stop putting it on and our wedding was still a few weeks away). Initially, I was a little wary of working with someone I found on a forum, especially with something that was so important, but the result was so positive that I thought it would be helpful to share it with everyone.
Hey guys. I seem to jump into the married world. I have looked at a few stones in stores and online (to know prices) and have come across 3 stones that seem well priced. Wondered if anyone could give some advice on value. I’m ok with paying for both.
A. 2.25ct J VS2 xxxn $ 14,300
B. 2.33ct J VS2 xxx medium blue $ 14,000
C. 2.08ct I VS2 xxxn $ 15,400
D. 2.3ct H VVS2 xxxn $ 18,900 (purchase of a “used” diamond, it was exchanged)
Everyone is eye clean. No obscurity. GIA. And white round.
Which is the best value? Are they good prices?
I really appreciate the help as this is my first dive into the diamond world.
Hi every one!
I hope anyone here has had any experience buying and / or handling Diamond Foundry?
I’m in the fun process of looking for an engagement ring, but am limited to lab-created diamonds. Without going into too much detail, my boyfriend often works in different parts of Africa and has a strong belief in traditional extracted diamonds. As such, I want to get a diamond that I know of that was never mined by a human.
I have searched across various online retailers of lab-created diamonds, and the Diamond Foundry seems to offer (what I consider) the most beautiful options (both in terms of setting and exclusive cuts).
Since this is a relatively large purchase and is likely to happen online, I would get people’s reviews. Currently, I can’t find much online about what anyone has experienced with them. They seem like a serious operation, but they do not have many diamonds listed on their site.
Does anyone have suggestions / advice?
Thank you, everybody!
Hi everyone, I am buying an engagement ring for my boyfriend and I have a 6k CAD soft border. I know the basics, but some people here are definitely more experienced than I am.
She wants a princess diamond with a halo setting. I have chosen the setting and it is approx. $ 2700. Setting below.
Is it a waste to spend $ 2700 on an option? or should I lower my setting price and get a nicer diamond. I know this is the setting she would like.
“14K WHITE GOLD SPLIT SHANK PRINCESS FORM DIAMOND HALO ENGAGEMENT RING”
Therefore, my diamond limit is 3km Canadian.
What does it look like?
0.83 CARAT G-VS2 IDEAL CUT PRINCESS DIAMOND
This wonder has been invaluable as a beginner. I originally bought a diamond from BlueNile, but had to return it because of excessive obscurity. I thought I had a good deal, but soon realized you have to be very careful about the SI1 clarity area as it varies a lot.
I have used diamond screening as a tool, but find it difficult to find a diamond close to the efficiency curve that does not have a large black inclusion.
I’m looking for about 1ct, H color, SI1 and about $ 5k.
What do you think of this one?
I hope to be able to propose to my girlfriend by the middle of next month. I would like a rock that glitters well within H and VS2. Some people have been told that I know that the cutout matters most in my case, since H and VS2 are the threshold for the sight with the naked eye. My budget is around 9K CAD (7K USD) I have done a number of diamond research and selected this one on Blue Nile, can you please help me and tell me what you think? Alternatively, feel free to include all links to a diamond that you find appropriate within this range.
Thank you so much for your time.
