Brief Type: Natural Diamond Cut: Round Brilliant Carat: from 2.45 ct to 3.15 ct Color Range: Near Colorless (G-H-I-J) Clarity: VS1-VS2 Message: Preferably would like to stay in I and above, I’m also okay with an eye clean SI1. It will be on a wide band 5mm yellow gold setting. If something is available on Blue Nile that would be preferable, since that is where the setting is sold. Appreciate the help!

I assess diamonds for 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.
- good contrast
- optical precision
- the value I believe it represents;
- must be deemed eye-clean by me;
- how well it fits the brief.
I only include a diamond I am confident the recipient will absolutely love.
