Ok all, need some help here. For christmas, I have asked my fiance to get me a square emerald cut diamond with a low color (think J, K, L, M) with a decent clarity (think SI2 or better) in a smaller size (think 0.25 to 0.45). Unfortunatly, we're having a hard time finding this. Help anyone?

fyi: in my humble opinion, for an emerald cut square or otherwise, anything lower than a J in color is a no-no... an even bigger mistake would be to go lower than a VS2 in clarity... emerald cut have less facets to hide behind, so inclusions are noticeable! above all else, make sure the cut is superior.

This is not my Engagment ring. I actually want a diamond with color to it like a K or L. And I just want it to be fairly Eye Clean. This will be just for a pretty ring. I already have a Superbcert G VVS1 diamond as my E-Ring. So the diamond does not have to be perfect by any means. Just pretty and affordable.

i agree with princessmichelle on the clarity issue. inclusions are more obvious in step cuts.
but as far as the color goes, i think lower colors will look great, it's a different look.
remember that gorgeous N color asscher that jay mednikow let sharon stone wear to the oscars this past year?

here's that huge picture of the ring on Sharon.

Thanks all for the advice, trust me I know about Emerald cuts, my Sister has one. But this ring isn't anything major. Just a pretty ring to wear, so as long as it's pretty and sparkly I'm happy. No, I don't want huge gapping carbon spots in it, but if I hold it an inch from my eye and see something, I don't care. I just want it to be as eye clean as possible for the money we are spending. I'm not looking for a perfect diamond by any means. I want a really low color and decent enough to get by clarity. I love the look of lower colors for a non E-ring. And I want to be able to get as big a diamond as possible for the money. It will be a ring with 2 tiny colored round sidestones (haven't decided what kind of stone, depends how much the diamond ends up costing).

So thanks for the concern, but I'm really not being a perfectionist in this case.

Jaxie, have you thought about just contacting a jeweler you trust? If it were me, I'd just shoot an email to DBOF, sit back, and wait for the goods!
