    Hi,

    i found a diamond in james allen, it has some si1 inclusions, but i dont know if they can be seen with the naked eye, or will affect the look, what do you think about this diamond?

      No, that diamond is not eye-clean. You are better off with a diamond like this:

      What size are you looking for and what is your ballpark budget. I suggest you read our post on color; you can get better value dropping to GH color.

    Hello :) my partner and I have a very small budget (approx $3k us) and I really don’t want a tiny diamond. I found a ring that I love on eBay,certified by IGS, feedback on seller is mostly glowing. Ideally, I wouldn’t be buying from eBay, but its really our only option with our budget. However, I would really really appreciate any opinion/judgement you could give me.
    Main diamond:
    Carat: 1.25
    Color: D
    Clarity: SI1
    Cut: very good
    Side diamonds: D/VS2 .7 carat.

    I really appreciate you taking the time to look at this for me, thank you so much and I really look forward to hearing from you,
    Ella

      The diamond is absolute garbage. Its artificially enhanced (not such a big deal) and it has an illegitimate certificate so the quality will be far lower than they actually claim (which is a huge deal).
