[Diamonds for $4,000] 1.02 Carat Cushion Diamond, Ideal Cut
Estimated Savings: $2,500+
This is a great cushion cut diamond for $4,000. Its cut grade, the most important characteristic, is ideal. It’s size is also good at 1.03 carats.
The color and clarity, grade-wise, are average. However, these two characteristics aren’t even very noticeable! Moving up to a better color and/or clarity would only visibly affect the price!
If you moved up to near-perfect or perfect color and clarity grades, keeping the same cut and carat size, you would be spending at least $6,510. That means this diamond will save you $2,500 or more!
