Hello! I was hoping to get your opinion/recommendation on a few diamonds I was interested in from JA. 4 c’s look good but I’m not sure which is the best value/quality.
The diamond will be set in a 14k yellow gold solitaire with 4 platinum prongs.
Frankly I’m looking for the largest size possible for best value but something that will still be visually stunning 🙂 Which diamond would be your recommendation?
Everything you’ve heard about going lower in color for a yellow gold setting doesn’t apply to lab diamonds. It works for natural diamonds because most of them are yellow. However, most CVD lab diamonds are brown. And all of the diamonds you’ve selected are HPHT with a blue hue. The blue will contrast with the yellow gold, which isn’t what you want.
I think the options below would be better within your budget. They don’t have blue nuance. They all have optimal proportions and should be eye-clean.
