Started looking for a round diamond – I have about $ 15,000 to spend on the stone itself and wondered if people have reasonable 4C ranges I should narrow my search to.
I know that clips are most important, so I’m most curious about what a “good” color and clarity is for stones in the relevant size range. In other words, at what point should I stop looking for better color and clarity (at the expense of size)? When doing some google search, I seem to have a fairly wide range of answers.
Right now, the setting is likely to be platinum or white gold with a runway ribbon and possibly hidden glory (but probably not a normal glory). I’m also aware that you can’t just judge a ring by the numbers alone, but I’m just looking for a starting guide post right now.
