I’m thinking of getting a diamond from Blue Nile, but I’m working on a tight budget 😬. Should I go for a 1.2 carat / ideal clip / J color / VS2 / no fluorescence (depth 61.7, table 61.0) diamond for 5.7 k USD or for a 1.17 carat / ideal / I color / VS2 / no fluorescence (depth 62.1, Table 57) diamond for 5.9 k USD? I’m not sure how depth and board works, so I would really appreciate any advice I can get from you! 🙏🏻
The H / G colors for this price range are a bit out of my budget. If I want to go up in a color class – what should I forget? (: does fluorescence mean a lot / polish / symmetry a lot?
