How Do I Choose A Diamond On A Budget?

Buying A Diamond On A Budget

If you are looking to get a nice diamond for your loved one and you have a certain budget in mind, a good choice is SI1-SI2 in clarity, and H-I in color. SI1-SI2 stands for slight inclusions. Usually these inclusions can not be seen with the visible eye, but can be seen through a loupe. H-I color stands for near colorless. It's not quite white but it's also not yellow. To view a color and clarity diamond chart please go to under the diamond education section.
