The diamond you selected is great, it’s eye-clean and has nice overall specs. Can you just tell me what style setting you’re using? Different settings suit different diamond colors better.

Thanks for the quick follow up and advice. I’m looking at doing the 14K YELLOW GOLD PETITE PAVE CROWN DIAMOND ENGAGEMENT RING

Thank you. That setting has a tiny halo around the main diamond and if you (or your fiancee) are color sensitive, you might see a hint of yellow in an I-color center stone. If size is your priority, stick to your original choice as it’s a very nice diamond, but I wouldn’t rule out something with a higher color grade either. It’s up to you.

Taking your advice, I changed my selection to this one… Can you confirm if you think the inclusion on the table will still make this diamond eye clean?

Unfortunately, that diamond is not eye-clean and strong fluorescence will make it look hazy. For DEFG diamonds you should get only none or faint fluorescence.

I don’t think it’s eye-clean. I’d rather go with something like this to be on the safe side:

I ended up ordering the 1.51 carat that you recommended… Thank you very much for the insight, really appreciate it!!!

That’s great news! I’m glad that I could help you decide on the diamond.

Following up on the diamond you helped pick out which just arrived. It’s absolutely perfect, thank you for all your help!

Thank you so much for sharing the picture with me, the ring is stunning!
