Hi everyone – I am currently looking for a round cut diamond for use in an engagement ring. Targeting ~ ~ 2.5 carats and trying to stay at or below ~ $ 25k. From my study (to circular cutting), it seems that clarity is where I am willing to admit some quality to getting what I want.
That said, I’m looking for thoughts on what a reasonable price could be for such a diamond. Below are specifications for one that I found for ** $ 23,970. ** Is this a reasonable price? What, in general, is generally fair to these specifications?
** GIA specifications below: **
* Shape and cutting style – Round brilliant
* Dimensions – 8.78 – 8.81 x 5.44 mm
* Carat weight – 2.58 carats
* Color class – E
* Clarity – SI1
* Cut Grade – Excellent
* Polish – Excellent
* Symmetry – Excellent
* Fluorescence – Medium blue
