Play a guessing game?
I’m going to show you a diamond. I’ll tell you exactly what it is; color, clarity, carat weight, cut… In fact, I’ll give you ALL of the identifying characteristics about the stone…
Your job is to decide how much you think the diamond costs?
I’ll help you out…
It’s one of these numbers:
Think you can guess?
Take a peek at the diamond and all of it’s information. Then make your best (or wildest) guess:
So what is it?
A $2,000, $4,000, $6,000, or $8,000 diamond?
More importantly, looking at how high the clarity is (VS1), looking at the carat weight (1.00 carat), the color G, at the high end of the Near Colorless color range, and the fact that it has “excellent” polish and symmetry, ideal cut, GIA certified, and has no fluorescence…
What do you think?
What would you pay for such a diamond?
And if you truly want to know what this stone costs, you can head on over here to James Allen here, or feast your eyes on this…

The purpose of this post is to show you that you don’t need to spend an arm and a leg to get yourself a large kick-ass diamond.
You just need to look at the stones (the cushion cut is a great way to keep the cost down), look at the inclusions, get an “excellent” cut (the best there is), a white color (G-H or higher), and you’ll end up with a diamond that sparkles like crazy.
