I know this is a wide range, in the $5,000 to $10,000 range. But when looking for a loose diamond in this range, I was hoping I could get a bit of direction as to what I can expect to find at the stores.
I know I can find a .25ct J, SI1 Good cut diamond, but i would be overpaying at the $5,000 mark
and I know that a 4ct D, VVS1 Excellent cut diamond could never be found for a price as low as $10,000.
So to get the 'best' ROUND diamond, what would you suggest is the correct mix of the C's to get the largest size with the most 'sparkle' that can be seen?
I must have at least 1ct, must have at least VS2 and it should be noted that this will be set in yellow gold, though likely a 6-prong setting, but maybe 8 -- the setting will not "surround" the table, so if there are options other than prongs, they may also be taken into account.
I am getting a bit off topic though, can anyone suggest a diamond i should "look" for that will be both large and sparkle, in this price range that gets the most 'bang for the buck' please? THANKS IN ADVANCE!!
