    I am in the same boat as the previous writers. Looking for a diamond 1/3 – 1/2 carat with a super simple setting. $1300-1500 max. She is petit and wouldn’t love a huge ring but sparkly would nice. I am doing this without much input from her because I want to surprise her on an upcoming trip. I like the round cut but I also like the Princess cut and that seems to be a better bang for buck . I checked out the articles on clarity and that doesn’t seem to be a huge worry with the right cut.

    Thanks in advance for any recommendations.

      Hey Brandon. I think your best bet would be to buy a pre-set engagement ring. See my review here:

    I am looking for an engagement ring. I was reading the other posts and would like to have your opinion on this diamond i am looking at, it would be much appreciated.

    my budget is 1500$ as the above.

      Hey Rob. That stone looks nice. If you can find one with an “Excellent” cut grade, it might be better, but for the money, this is a nice choice.
