ROUND BRILLIANT DIAMOND
You could do cheaper for a diamond of this size. But if you are looking for a good quality stone, this 0.96 Carat H-VS2 Excellent Cut Round Diamond is a good choice. It certainly looks sumptuously clear for only being grade VS2.

CUSHION CUT DIAMOND
Like the look of antique diamonds, but want a stone without the history? Go with a cushion cut, which is actually an antique cut, with a more subtle play of fire than modern stones. This demure 0.51 Carat H-VS2 Cushion Cut Diamond is a beauty and affordably priced.
($1,220 from James Allen)
ASSCHER CUT DIAMOND
The asccher cut is definitely a bolder cut, with more of an art-deco appeal. This 0.90 Carat H-VS2 Asscher Cut Diamond is a great buy for almost a carat.
($3,670 from James Allen)
Very affordable, a rich shade of deep blue, and gloriously clear, this 1.02 carat oval natural blue sapphire is a classic choice for a colored stone engagement ring.
($650 from James Allen)
I can’t get over the color of this stone. This 1.15 carat emerald cut natural green emerald is the most gorgeous deep true emerald green.
