Best Round Brilliant Cut Diamond for $10,000: 1.63 Carat I Color SI1 Clarity GIA Certified Ideal Cut Round Diamond

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a daily diamond selection.  I’ve been back and forth a lot over this matter.  I’m not convinced that you, the readers, find these selections useful.  If you feel like these are important, and I should continue posting daily diamond recommendations, then please let me know in the comments!

Today I decided to get back in the daily diamond game right at a very popular price point – the best round brilliant diamond for $10,000.  Today’s stone looks like a great find.  The inclusions in the center are going to be invisible to the naked eye and the orangy inclusion on the side (at about 5 o’clock in the picture) can be covered by the prong on the ring.  An I color diamond is still going to look white to your eye as well, and the Excellent cut grade is going to ensure a very brilliant stone, so this stone really offers fantastic value.
