L Color Diamonds – A Spotlight on Faint Yellow Diamond Rings

When it comes to diamonds, it’s no secret that the majority of consumers prefer to buy colorless (D, E, F) and near colorless (G, H, I, J) stones.

Searching For a 0.90 Carat Diamond, SI Clarity With A Budget Of Around $5,000

5000 dollar budget diamondHi Paul,

Thanks for the great site. I have read pretty much every page of your website and it has given me the confidence to buy a diamond online.

Now, I have a question on how to go about selecting a SI1 diamond with amazing sparkle. My budget is about $4800 without the setting. I want to stay at a G or better in color and I want the diamond to have an excellent cut.

What exactly should I look for in the blown up video and image? When I look at the following list of diamonds, they all are SI1s but look dramatically different in how their arrows appear. Should I request other images for them?
