There are a few similar questions for me here, so sorry if this corresponds to recent posts.
I’m looking for an emerald diamond for an engagement ring with the specs below.
** 1.5 carats **
** ~ 1.5 ratio **
** Around ** ** $ 9k- $ 10k ** ** US **
Can anyone provide some guidance on what my best options would be? I found [this](https://www.jamesallen.com/loose-diamonds/emerald-cut/1.50-carat-g-color-vs1-clarity-sku-7956470?a_aid=55f8cd4e21a11), do you find it a good opportunity? The ratio is obviously not as good as 1.5, but would it still be decent for an emerald cut?
Can anyone also confirm what the difference / risk is between buying online and buying from a local diamond seller?
Many thanks in advance! From a nervous boyfriend …
