Looking for a round diamond, excellent cut, at least H color, VS2 or VS1, $14-18K budget. Would really appreciate some help narrowing things down…
Options I’m looking at right now:
This first and third diamond are the same 1.59 G VS2. That diamond shows some strain in the diamond crystal and I think the black crystal under the table could be improved. The 1.41 G VS2 is cloudy.
You might consider the options below. The 1.55 H SI1 is lower clarity than your criteria, but should be eye-clean and would save you the most. The 1.67 H VS2 goes a bit bigger. And then the 1.5 D VS2 jumps up in color compared to the 1.59 G VS2. I only searched under $16k as that was similar to the options you listed.
