Whatever you and your SO decide you like, be sure to shop around first. Unless you get a real big stone, the color and clarity can be skimped (a little on) because the setting will obstruct this. SI1 is about as low as I'd go if you are in the 1.5ct market. As for color G/H is a good bet. Keep in mind the approval authority GIA versus EGL.. (EGL is a for-profit entity and tend to have a little looser standards, not egregious but figure 1 to 2 'upgrades) (GIA G, VVS2 may be an EGL F VVS1). Also if EGL be sure to verify the location, EGL-Israel is notorious for inflating the quality. Google it, plenty of good articles on it. Also, if you aren't sure about the price you are being quoted, check bluenile.com for a comparison.
