I’m after a lab grown oval diamond with a max budget of $3100 USD which will be set in a rose gold band, and I would love your opinion on some options. I would ideally like a more elongated oval with L/W ratio at least 1.43 but am finding anything longer than ~9mm seems too large for my finger. I found a few options but honestly, I’m feeling a little lost on deciding the best option and how to tell if they have a noticeable bowtie. Any help / alternate diamonds you recommend would be greatly appreciated:
I like the 1.35 E VS1 of these. I think the 1.27 D VS1 will show more darkness down the middle when viewed at an angle. And then I prefer the cleaner, higher color of the HPHT E over the darker tone of the CVD F.
Thank you so much for your help Joe, I really appreciate it!
