First diamond is not even Triple Excellent, so it is best to skip it.

Second diamond's proportions look good, but not image or video, best to get it from the seller before making any decision. Also note that this diamond is SI1 with feather inclusion, make sure it is safe enough.

The last ZCOVA diamond, please skip it. It is not Triple Excellent.

Many thanks for your reply. May I know what is your thoughts if comparing between the second diamond to these diamonds below?

Or do you have any recommendations for a 0.6ct diamond?

The Audrey diamond has no clear arrows. You can ask them to find diamonds with better arrows. Let them know your budget.

The 2nd diamond has no picture. Hard to tell.

The 3rd diamond has no picture too, but it is not a Triple Excellent diamond, so I won't recommend it.

You can check out with DeGem to find out more on your options.

May I know your budget for 0.6?

Both proportions seem not bad, but I will probably get 6224307594 since it has bigger face-up measurements.

Nonetheless, we only have the proportions, we do not have the actual image or video to make better judgement. I won't recommend to buy based on numbers alone.

Thanks sifu. Here's the actual image / video.
I do agree that I like 6224307594 better. It is also cheaper compared to the other.

I was also thinking to save some more money by going down on clarity. Here is one I was looking at, but my only concern is that the magnified image has quite an obvious inclusion at the bottom. Just wondering would it be noticeable with the naked eye? If purely looking from the naked eye, would this be good enough?

The VS1 looks pretty decent. It's a VS1, I won't be bothered by its inclusions. Top view looks eye clean enough. Among these 3, i will say it will be my top choice.

41.4 pavilion angle... use cut estimator and see how similar diamond looks like: https://www.diamondscreener.com/cut-estimator/

You will see that the arrows are mostly blurred out.

Try to ask for options to compare with.

Pretty decent diamond with good proportions. You can check similar table, crown, pavilion diamonds in diamondscreener: https://www.diamondscreener.com/cut-estimator/

Not exactly Hearts & Arrows, but will do fine.

Price is fair enough IMO, considering the service they able to provide.

Looks okay. Can be slightly better for the 6 o'clock arrow. Price wise can be little bit cheaper. 4Cs alone, ZCOVA is slightly cheaper. Then again, you have to see the overall package to compare.

Personally I'm got confused looking at so many diamonds.

Was offered 9k for that ring, so I bought it. They have some 0.5 SI1 E.colour going for 8k. So I went for the carat size route.

They even allow me to compare under natural light by taking out to open air. I couldn't appreciate any difference about the fire from my rookie eyes.

9k for that 4Cs + ring alone is decent enough.

First of all, thanks for the reply. This diamond is actually from ZCOVA, recommended by their staff. One issue I have with this diamond is the inclusion of "Twinning wisp." Should it be a concern since I've read some articles indicating that this particular inclusion might cause the diamond to appear cloudy or milky?  ohmy.gif

For this you can ask the staff for their opinion. Also, diamond supplier sometimes may have the BGM indicator, which stands for Brown Green Milky. Make sure that is a No.

Lastly, if you still have concerns, try to up the clarity level to VS1.

Anyone have experience buying lab-grown diamonds from Brilliant Earth? They seem to have a large collection.

Or anyone willing to share other places to buy lab-grown diamonds
