Best Princess Cut Under $6,000

Today we are looking at Princess cut diamonds.

These are hugely popular and sought after. It’s important to realise that the way light is dispersed through princess cut diamonds makes it necessary to look for a stone with a higher color than “J”.

We thought we’d try a little trick and go for one with  a clarity rating of SI2. The trick is to make sure that the diamond still looks good. This of course is only possible through a place like James Allen since they have high magnification of the actual diamond that you are going to buy.

We can see that the inclusions don’t ruin the look of the diamond, and make this a very good deal for a diamond way over 1 carat.
