I have been doing quite a bit of reading about the 4C’s and stumbled upon diamondscreener a few weeks ago, and I really appreciate what you have done with this website.  I am torn between going for a diamond that is literally 0.2-0.3mm smaller (~0.9) than an average 1 carat (~6.4mm) round diamond, or even slightly larger, if the diamond is closer to the efficiency frontier, is the extra cash worth the 0.2mm?  I have been torn between opt’ing for an I color versus H or G as well.  I can tell the difference on the Bluenile 360 view of the diamond (of course they are magnified significantly), and 99% of the internet says you will not be able to see a difference unless compared to another diamond, and you won’t be able to see it naturally while in the setting (looking at going for platinum).

For instance, I have found several diamonds that I have liked, but I am not 100% sure on what I really “want” to spend, or should spend, and what I will likely not notice between the different diamonds in person.

I also wanted to ask if there are more historical pricing charts available.  I was curious to see what the prices have looked like over the past year up to 5-10 years potentially, more for my curiosity as to potentially identifying times during the year when prices are lower or higher.
