This is definitely a nice diamond, but you’re paying a high marketing premium for Astor. You could also potentially save money by going with a lower clarity. For instance, the 1.1 G VS2 would be unbranded, lower clarity (still eye-clean) and would save you $2500. From there you can go up in size, color, or clarity while staying within this diamond’s budget. All of these diamonds also have GIA EX/AGS 0 Ideal proportions.
