I think it’s ex
Past JP sic n ideal quotes

0.60 E, VS1, $5400
0.60 D VS1 $5300
0.62 E VVS2 $5600
0.80 G VS1 $5700 (ideal)
Shops in Paragon and Ion Orchard ... expected.

Or should I say ... JP SICs are not overly marked up just because they are SIC.

Hi all, has been reading for the past few days, im proposing soon in Nov.
Hence, needed some help for all the masters here to look for a suitable stone in BG. There's too many stones in there.... and im not sure which 1 to choose...

Budget for stone is around $3k ish max
With setting max maybe $4k ish? (she hinted that she dont mind a gold setting or setting with small diamonds on the sides)
Size wise, she will like it to be around 0.6 and above (best if i can get a 0.616ct cuz this number meant something to us)
Colour and clarity wise, im not so sure. if im going for the gold setting so colour shouldnt matter so much right?

Greatly appreciate if any master could help me thru in this process of life. Thank you very much in advance!!

Gold as in yellow gold setting? Very few ppl do yellow gold but it can get away with a lower color. You can probably even consider the J K L M colors for yellow gold.

Like u ... I was searching for a stone with a specific ct recently, so I 100% understand what you are feeling. Good news is that it is available, but u need to up your budget if u want a good 0.616 SIC stone.

But if u really wanna keep within the S$3k budget, this 0.606 SIC:

Hi defghijsg, does this apply to the Octagon too or only round shapes? How did you get the video of your diamond?
It applies to all diamonds with hearts n arrows. The lower the LGH the thicker the arrows, which will get bigger fire.
I asked for some video comparison with the 2 diamonds I picked and they did those videos for me. I guess you can request them directly for it.

Colour and clarity determine the price. D-VS2 vs I-SI1.

Both should be SIC equivalent, thus won't see too different after mounting on a ring.

It all depends on whether the "616" (Jun-16?) is worth the S$1.5k premium or not ... which I feel is worth for sentimental reasons.

Both diamonds have feathers across the girdles.. a big no no for me.
Or you can do this kind of bezel settings to protect it from chipping.

Its on the cert. It will have the inclusion type and show where the inclusion is at. The certificate show that both diamond got feather inclusions and on the edges part of the diamond.

Feather inclusion itself is ok as long as its internal. Its a soft word for crack. When the crack is inside, its ok and wont worsen. But if the crack reaches the the surface, any impact on it will have the possibility to chip or worsen the existing crack. Its like a ticking time bomb waiting to happen.

Fear of feathers is abit exaggerated.

U need to evaluate each stone.
The D color is a VS2 of which the feather is NOT the grade setting inclusion.
Versus in the SI1 the feather is.

The reason to go online is the bigger inventory compared to JP.
I have no issue buying the BGD Black but I would not in this case not because of the feather but rather the premium on the color.
