I am looking for a 2ct round diamond, I+ color, SI+ clarity.
I found the diamonds listed below, with the help of the search on the website. I was unsure if I should be concerned with the IGI certification on the third option or if I should try to stick to GIA certified diamonds when looking in this color/clarity range.
The grading lab is not as important as evaluating each diamond. I color can show a lot of variation in terms of hue and saturation, both within IGI and GIA. I’m fine with IGI as long as it looks nice.
I do think that the 2.09 I VS1 shows a bit more color saturation than the other two. However, the 2ct I VVS2 below is IGI and I think it has comparable saturation to the 2.01 I VS1 and a bit lighter tone. So I might go with it instead and save money.
