I [posted a couple weeks back](https://www.reddit.com/r/Diamond/comments/euya4e/need_help_with_parameters_for_an_emerald_cut/) asks for help in evaluating my parameters. I got some great feedback, including some alternative stone suggestions compared to the example I gave. I am beginning to find out what makes as stone bad, but not what makes a good diamond preferable to another, especially with comparable “statistics”. So I wonder if the better way to do it is this:
What is your favorite emerald cut diamond for an engagement ring at or above 1.5 carats for $ 10,500? It would go into a white gold or platinum solitaire setting. And if you’re interested in elaborating * why * you like the ones you do, I’m all ears.
