    Give my some feedback on what you think is better..Should I sacrifice color for size? Should i get a smaller karat, but a near flawless color, and quality? It's all so confusing....I could get a 2.01 diamond VS2 I color for $11,000. If i got a smaller diamond (1.65) but a better Color-D it's gonna cost me a couple thousand more. This is quite a decision to make.

    I is not good.

    No need to go D, F is just as good to the untrained eye.

    Try for VVS2 or at the worst VS1, unless the visible flaw is hidden under a prong.

    what cut are yo looking at?

    I have no idea. Is this a good time to be getting engaged? I thought you were going back to school?

    So in your female opinion, you rather have a smaller diamond if the color is better? They say I is near colorless.

    Is this purchase going to put you into debt? Only get what you can afford. She'll understand if she really loves you.

    i have a D ring, and H earrings. put the 2 next to each other and the difference is astonishing.

    I would want a smaller E-F versus a larger H-I.

    The cut is round. But the more perfect I get the more expensive the diamon gets. I'm only looking to spend 12 grand..I think that's a lot to begin with.

    . the broad that would be interested in you is looking for size, not cut/clarity/color. so go to a pawn shop and get the biggest, cheapest, shittiest ring you can find. she's gonna keep it when she leaves you anyways, right? :D

    you can get a stellar 1 carat for that money, and a really nice 1.5

    2 carat is pushing it for that dough. You will be sacrificing something for the size.

    The cut is also very important. But i don't know your lady, so I can only give you my opinion on what I like.

    color>size>/=cut>clarity IMO
