Need help with parameters for an emerald cut diamond. Check out my Blue Nile filters?

Hey guys,

Working on the diamond for an engagement ring and I was hoping you could help me enter the parameters so I make the right decision. I’ve never done this before, so I’m a little clear on what actually makes a noticeable difference.

My budget is about $ 10,000 for the stone itself, but I’d go up a bit if it was really a bargain. Tell me what other information you need. I’m sure there’s plenty I’m missing.

Here are mine [filters in Blue Nile](Https://imgur.com/a/g2bfjcg). I based this mostly on googling and some preliminary research on what to look for in an emerald cut. Does any of this look like? Am I searching too high for some things that don’t matter?

And just the same with argument and getting me educated, [how’s this one for example](Https://www.bluenile.com/diamond-details/LD11869707?refTab=DIAMONDS&track=viewDiamondDetails&action=sameTab)?

Thanks in advance. I’m sure this will be the first of quite a few posts as I figure out what might be the biggest purchase of my life to date.

Jewels recommendation needs near San Francisco

I need to change my current ring. I had it for four years and I want to put a new (bigger) stone on it.

Problem? The ring is designed to house .64c ~ 1c, the rock I have is 1.2c. With that in mind, the jeweler will need a new head.

The ring I have is [this]( [https://www.bluenile.com/build-your-own-ring/monique-lhuillier-draped-eternal-diamond-engagement-ring-platinum_75073](Https://www.bluenile.com/build-your-own-ring/monique-lhuillier-draped-eternal-diamond-engagement-ring-platinum_75073))

Can anyone recommend me an experience jeweler who could do the job? Ideally near San Francisco, but I’m willing to drive 1 hour for this.

The History of Black Diamond

Clearly diamond is woman’s first love. There are different kinds of diamonds available in the market. But you probably don’t know about the black diamond. Black diamond? yes, black diamond Yes, let me briefly explain about black diamonds.

1. Black Diamond is also famous as “Carbonados Diamonds”. This name is given by Portuguese people. Because this stone looks like a combustion and sear, and this stone looks like carbon.
2. This black diamond is mostly fine in Brazil and Central Africa because both countries come together many years ago.
3. Normal diamond is available in kimberlic deposit where the black diamond is available in alluvial deposits available in the stream of Rival.

Engagement ring help!

Long time lurking trying to figure out what to get my significant other. Finally, look at rings for real. Don’t know much about diamonds, but I want them to be mined. I know she wants a round, 6-pole patience, on a platinum band (she is very old school). I was thinking something towards ideal / excellent clips, I color, vvs2, 2-2.3ct. If anyone has suggestions, I am happy to take them and very committed

Also, thoughts on this ring from Costco?

Engagement ring stones

Hello everyone,
Shopping for engagement rings, came across a rock that I really like. Here is the gia report: https://imgur.com/a/4cslHUN

This one costs about $ 10,700. When I saw it, it stood out to me and another friend among the other stones I was looking at. I examined the stone quite a bit, with the naked eye looking just fine. As I looked at the stone under magnifying magnification, I could see some intrusions that resembled small black crystals or lines. But when I looked at it again with the naked eye, I could see nothing.

Is the given price too much for the stone, is this a good find?

Nervous over recent purchases would appreciate some insight

Ok, so just to preface I don’t know much about diamonds. I just bought an engagement ring of pure origin and I was pretty happy with what I thought would be a good diamond at a decent price. After talking to a friend who also buys one, he informed me that the inclusions on the diamond I chose could very well be visible to the naked eye, and now I’m getting very nervous. The clarity is only SI 1, which I had thought they would not be, but upon further investigation it looks like they could. I was hoping some of you could help me, hopefully reassure me that I didn’t buy a terrible diamond.

The information and pictures are in the link below. I paid $ 3,533.

Thanks for your help! Any other information to mention regarding the diamond would also be appreciated.

Your favorite Emerald Cut Diamond for the budget

Hey guys,

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.

Questions about IGI lab classification and metal type

I choose between three lab-made diamonds (shown below) for an engagement ring. I placed the dimensions in the Diamond Screeners estimator, and somehow # 2 has the worst proportions, though IGI gave it a higher cut rating than # 1 or # 3.

Should I go by the IGI rating or the AGS / GIA estimator? Which diamond do you think is the best value? To be honest, I couldn’t actually tell anything else in sparks, colors or clarity when I saw them in person!

Would platinum or white gold also be better for delicate settings with small accent diamonds? I got conflicting information from various retailers. Some said platinum is more durable for small spikes, others say white gold is harder and holds small stones better because they bend less than platinum, but others say they have the same durability and only color wear is different .. All advice is appreciated!

Emerald Cut Diamond Advice

Hello everyone,

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 …
