Diamond Query: Getting a Diamond Graded by Either GIA or AGS for Highest Diamond Grading Standards

| Anonymous Reader

Hello Sebastian,

Thank you in advance for your guidance. I’m having the pleasure of helping my future son in law to pick out my daughters diamond. As my daughters is a petite 5’ a large diamond would look clunky and not necessary to spending a fortune.

I thought that the clarity of the ring was much better to the eye and looks brilliant. Her boyfriend had a higher price range in mind then I did. I don’t think there’s a need of spending huge $$ and my suggestion was 3k would be sufficient. Now we looked at a ring that is .55 with a SI1 but D color but the diamond looked beautiful.


Grading Report


What is your suggestion of the diamond. He picked out a white gold band with little diamonds embedded on each side. What is your expertise and what do you think is a good cost for a diamond along these measures?

Looking forward to your suggestions. My son in law wants a brilliant ring because my daughter is very stylish and loves bling bling. Look forward in hearing from you with suggestion.

Thanks in advanced, Looking for the best for them and I know he wants to give her a beautiful ring.

Thank you for your inquiry. I am happy to help! And congratulations on the upcoming engagement.

Is the $3K for just the diamond? And what is the diamond institution that graded the diamond?

Hello Sebastian,

The diamond alone is in the 2 thousand range maybe a little more because the setting was 7-8 hundred. Did you see the copy of the diamond details?

It looks nice but want to make sure we looked at the correct stone. Thanks for your expertise!

It doesn't look like the diamond was graded by GIA or AGS. It just looks like a little card with some of the diamond information. I would also recommend getting a diamond graded by either GIA or AGS, since they have the highest diamond grading standards.

Also, you can purchase this diamond for under $2K from an online retailer, such as James Allen. Please see below, for example…
