Q&A: Looking for the Best Princess Cut for $3500

You just did a post (link below) about a situation just like mine. https://www.diamonds.pro/qa-3500-budget-first-wants-round-brilliant-then-changes-mind-and-opts-for-a-princess-cut/#more-2447 Just looking for an update if anything new/better has come across James Allen. I am in the $3500 for the diamond range, +/- a couple hundred if there is that “$3800 special”. We swapped emails a bit ago, finally looking to pull the trigger. Thank you for you help (again).

Here’s what I got for you:

If you can go up a big from 3500, then this stone’s a killer: https://www.jamesallen.com/diamonds/H-VS2-Ideal-Cut-Princess-Diamond-1277614.asp?a_aid=dmnd1357

Otherwise, I love this one: https://www.jamesallen.com/diamonds/H-SI1-Ideal-Cut-Princess-Diamond-1274235.asp?a_aid=dmnd1357

Both are exceptionally nice princess cut makes. Both are totally eye clean. It’s just that the first one is a bit larger than the 2nd one.


I am going to go with the first one. I need to get the exact (or close as i can ring size) tonight. This is great.

Thank you so much.

When I pull the trigger, I will contact you about providing feedback on a site to up your reputation.

I bought it!  Thanks again for your help and look forward to having it in my hand… more importantly ON her hand.


Q: Great news!  I’m glad you were able to nab it.  Btw, which ring did you match it with?  Did you use the TAD0611 discount for the setting?


Yep!  I used the coupon.  Thanks so much for that!

I paired it with this ring…. https://www.jamesallen.com/engagement-rings/pave/18k-White-Gold-2-2mm-Pave-Set-Diamond-Ring.html

I looked at some of the previews that JA had set already, looked great.
