Hi Diamond Advisor, Looking for some help selecting a diamond. I am really impressed with what I’ve read on the Brian Gavin Hearts and Arrows diamond. My girlfriend wants a very simple ring, and they also offer a “Tiffany Style” setting that I really like (in white gold). Brian Gavin Tiffany Style Knife Edge Setting. My total budget is about $5500 – $6000. I obviously want the best diamond for the money – but my head is spinning looking at all of the options available to me. Can you make some recommendations? Appreciate the help!

Recommendation for 1.7+ carat, Ideal cut, F color, VS2 clarity diamond

Recommendation for 1.7+ carat, Ideal cut, F color, VS2 clarity diamond:

Reader Richard wrote to us asking:

I’m looking at getting a nice loose diamond for a custom ring that I am having made, I’ve come across this stone: http://www.bluenile.com/ca/diamond-search?stockno=LD04790621 and would like your honest opinion on it. I’ve searching for a VS2 for value reasons except I’ve been quite picky in terms of where the inclusions are located (trying to avoid inclusions on the table). I’ve run the facetware on the stone and it looks like the thing that makes/breaks its “Excellent” cut is the pavilion angle. It looks like its right at the edge of excellent/VG and I am wondering if this means that the stone will not have the “fire” in it that everyone is looking for.

I would like your advice on what you think of the value here and if you think there are better stones out there (if so, any help identifying some would be awesome!).

I’m pretty hard set on a F+, VS2+,triple EX, 1.7 carat+, no fluorescence (is faint even noticeable? still getting mixed reactions opinions here)

Thanks very much!

Recommendation for Modern Cushion Cut under $9,000

Recommendation for Modern Cushion Cut with $9,000 budget:

Reader Larry wrote to us asking:

I was hoping to get another opinion on a cushion cut I found on James Allen, as well as help finding any other cushions that catch your eye. I’m going to get ASET imaging on it, but would like to submit a couple more diamonds for comparison. I’m looking for cushion cuts, with a budget around $9000. My search parameters were 1.4-1.6 carats, H-G color, SI2-VS2, but if you find any cushions that you feel are a great value, I’d definitely take a look. I’m probably going to have it in a white gold solitaire or pave setting.

Advice on Brian Gavin Blue Diamond with Stunning Setting

Q/A on a Brian Gavin Blue with Crescent Moon Engagement Ring

Reader Raul wrote to us and asked:

Hi Diamond Adviser,

My mind is set on getting a Brian Gavin Blue Diamond and I really like the setting at this link: http://www.briangavindiamonds.com/engagement-rings/pave-and-side-stones/elsie-14k-white-gold-5927w14

I’m happy to get 14k white gold for the metal type since I think the focus is on the diamond anyway – or is it worth ponying up to get 18k white gold or platinum?

My total budget is about $6,000 . If getting 14k white gold for the metal for the setting at $1,790, that leaves about $4,200 for the blue diamond itself. I’m hoping you can recommend an appropriate blue diamond for the engagement ring. Clarity of the diamond is important, but so is the size, so a balance would be great.

Look forward to any insight you can provide. Thanks in advance for your help!
