[Diamonds For $5,000] 1.02 Carat Radiant Diamond, Ideal Cut VVS2
Estimated Savings: $3,000+
Here’s a unique diamond if you’re in the $5,000 range for your diamond. It’s a radiant cut, which is a less common diamond shape. It’s cut quality is graded “Ideal” which is the most important factor for a diamond.
The clarity is VVS2 and if you inspect the diamond for inclusions, you can’t easily see any with the naked eye (so why pay for a better grade? — see below). The color is G, which is a great color rating because it doesn’t come with the premium that a perfect or near-perfect grade does, but it isn’t low enough that the diamond is very visibly colored.
If you were to get a diamond with near-perfect or perfect color and clarity grades, you would have to spend at least $8,000, and easily $10,000 or more. This diamond, at $5,020, is a savings of at least $3,000! It’s an excellent value.
