Looking for a rectangular radiant cut diamond 2+ carats in size (the bigger the better in her eyes) to be paired with a petite pave setting. All in budget $15k-$20k.

I’m trying to find the right balance between size and quality, I want the largest “eye clean”, white diamond I can get for the money. Currently looking at 10758765 on James Allen but wanting a second opinion before I pull the trigger.

Could I go bigger without sacrificing appearance to the naked eye?

I like the ones you sent, especially the JA one is a very similar stone at a much better price point.

I went with the JA option on the Platinum Petite Pave Engagement Ring (Flush Fit).

I liked the balance between price, quality, and size on that stone.

Thanks again.

That’s wonderful news! I hope the stone will meet (or exceed) your expectations.

It’s fantastic!
We love it!

I’m so happy to hear you like it.
