I’ve had quite a few request this week to help people find the best half carat round ideal cut diamonds from James Allen. People looking to buy the best diamonds from Australia, Hong Kong, Italy and the United States, it’s really rewarding for me to know that I’m helping people all over the world select the perfect diamond for their engagement ring!
Obviously I always try to provide people with as many options as possible within the scope of my selection criteria, so we had quite a few leftover and collectively agreed that they should be shared with my readers! I hope that you enjoy and benefit from this delightful selection of half carat diamonds that I’ve cherry-picked from the vast inventory of James Allen!
These are not any better or worse than the few diamonds that were chosen by the clients who requested the search. You’ll see that many of them are quite similar, practically twins, and might imagine that we had a heck of a time choosing!
I’m not going to write a description for each individual diamond, doing so would be repetitive and boring, both for me to write and for you to read… Suffice to say that each of the diamonds meets my selection criteria, and will provide a high volume of light return, a virtual balance of brilliance (white sparkle) and dispersion (colored sparkle):
All of the diamonds listed above are essentially equal in terms of visual performance, the decision to purchase one over the other really comes down to a personal preference for the combination of carat weight, clarity, color, and the degree of blue fluorescence.
Naturally I am happy to help you search for a diamond if none of these happens to be what you’re looking for. Simply send me a description of what you’re looking for via my free Diamond Concierge Service.
