My Overall Score is a measure combining a number of factors including:

  • the AGS cut guidelines potential cut grade; What is AGS? See this article; The AGS cut grade takes into consideration fire, brilliance, contrast and light performance.
  • how confident I am that the recipient will absolutely love love love the diamond;
  • good contrast
  • optical precision
  • the value I believe it represents;
  • must be deemed eye-clean by me;
  • how well it fits the brief.

Blue Nile is GST registered in Australia and therefore their prices include GST on their site for viewers in Australia. I have multiplied the other vendors’ prices by 1.1 to show the price including GST, though the GST component will not be due until the item is received by you.

**The Art of Jewels has a $US50 fee for shipping to Australia which I have not included in the price. However they do currently have Valentine’s Day coupon codes which will offset the price by a lot more than $50.

Prices may vary if exchange rates move.
