Win-Win: Zoara Discount For Students And Coming In Under Budget


Hi Liz,

I’m looking for an engagement ring online with a budget of $6500. I’d like color at least H/I, clarity VS1 (don’t want inclusions visible to the naked eye), and would like something close to 1 carat (.95 at least), in a classic 4 prong setting in white gold.

I checked out your Zoara review and followed your guide. What do you think of the diamonds below? I’m a medical student so the extra 5% Zoara discount on jewelry definitely helps!






Thank you so much for your help.



Hi Neal,

Thank you for letting me know your budget and diamond requirements. I can tell that you followed my guide on the Zoara review, you did a really good job in picking out some nicely cut diamonds! Since we are looking at diamonds that don’t have actual images, we are limited to analyzing their cut proportions and being particularly mindful of inclusions. Whenever there isn’t a magnified image of a diamond available, I recommend going no lower than a VS2 in clarity. That being said, I’ve reviewed your diamonds above and my top three diamonds are:

1.05ct J VVS2 for $5,530.00: http://www.zoara.com/diamonds/p_round_excellent_cut_j_vvs2#p=3275079

1.10ct J VVS2 for $5,538.00: http://www.zoara.com/diamonds/p_round_excellent_cut_j_vvs2#p=3416405

1.03ct I VVS2 for $5,796.00: http://www.zoara.com/diamonds/p_round_excellent_cut_i_vvs2#p=3316495

However, my favorite for you would be the 1.10ct J VVS2. It is the cleanest in clarity, no blue fluorescence, has great ideal cut proportions, and has a recently graded GIA report from June 2nd.

As for your four prong white gold solitaire setting, Zoara has several styles to choose from. Here a few that you may like:

Hi Liz,

I purchased the ring and and received it last week. The ring is stunning, set in four prong white gold and the box that it is sent in has a light so makes the ring pop. I came in under budget!

Thanks again!
