Who would buy a 1 carat diamond ring without knowing what the details (or even range) of the diamond quality might be? 1 carat means nothing if it is a crappy colour or clarity....

You'd think that if you were spending £2k+ you'd qualify for free delivery........

​They probably think 'You're spending 2400 anyway what's a few extra £?'

​Haha.

People really shouldn't vote hot/cold on if they can afford it, but more on the actual saving/deal itself.
anh how do u know that the price is not inflated compared to other shops?

​There abouts.
Can't vote on this - the price may be amazing if a high quality diamond - but really at this price it's going to be yellow and far from flawless oO
If they don't mention the clarity or the colour then they'll be pretty poor - something like I2 and colour R at best. £2400 at a proper independent jeweller will probably buy you a nice VVS2/G, VS1/F half carat diamond in a slim 18ct White gold band.

I'd rather buy a white, clean 0.4 or 0.5ct diamond than a crappy 1ct diamond that'll have very visible yellow/green inclusions and won't be very bright when the light catches it.

There's no such thing as a lucky dip when it comes to diamonds - good diamonds are sold on their clarity and colour, these have unstated qualities, so will be poor.

If the diamond was a good cut, clarity it would be stated. You get what you pay for and the lack of any recognised certification probably means this is low quality. Whilst it seems cheap it's probably the going rate..... A decent quality (not the best) 1ct stone will set you back £6k alone, before the setting is added....

I bet it has flaws the clarity and quality is poor. If you want a proper quality one you actually select what you want go to bluenile.com/uk/
With diamonds, there is no such thing as a bargain, but there are rip-offs aplenty.

The only way to ensure you get a decent deal is to know what you are buying, but the vast majority of buyers don't. Adding that to the size of the £sum involved, inevitably, there is a lot of funny business going on.

For those who have limited knowledge, the only way not to be ripped off, is to go to a reputed/trusted vendor, and insist on buying stones which have a genuine GIA certificate (which identifies all the flaws visible by a loupe, and states the 4Cs of the stone), because only with a credit worthy certificate can you assess how much a stone is worth with any degree of certainty, aided by the Rapaport report (the bible of diamond valuation). The one linked below is not up to date, but remains a good guide because prices haven't changed that much.

The issue though, is nearly no stone in a typical high street jeweller has a GIA certificate, and they will likely try to fob you off with in-house/****/inferior certificates, ensuring that you are still in the dark in terms of valuation.

For a 1 carat round stone, top of page 2 of the linked report shows the going rate in US$/carat, so for the price here, you are unlikely to get anything better than I2/3, i.e. clarity so poor, that blemishes/inclusions will be visible to the naked eye. That pretty much sums up the best one carat stone you will get for the money.

Additionally, not only is there a risk of buyers not knowing what they are sold, there is also the issue of bait and switch by dishonest staff working in high street vendors (e.g. if/when you need to have the ring size changed, or cleaned), so that a ring with e.g. a 1 carat I3 stone you bought might come back to you with a stone even/much worse. If you have not learnt to examine and identify a stone with a loupe, you truly are at the vendor's mercy with your hard-earned cash.

It is a terrible business.
I bought this for my fiancé at xmas and the diamond is really good and came with a GIA certificate (and number is traceable on their website) everyone who as seen the ring loves it diamond is shiny and clear not yellow at all.

To be fair though I ordered the 0.5ct version of this and was messed around with the item not being sent out when it should TWICE so complained and the next day I received the 1ct variant which cost over £2000 more so I didn't complain anymore!
