Few rules of thumb:

It's about her showing off and you proving your worth. It's a contrivance, but still important.

Buy loose diamonds only, crap ones get preinstalled

The clearest diamond with a bad cut has no sparkle

Go for width, not height. Taller = more weight + more cost + more bulk with no extra sparkle. A wide 1.0 carat looks bigger than a skinny 1.2 carat while costing less.

Let her choose the setting, from the same or another shop. But make sure it's 4+ prongs.

Buy from a reputable wholesaler. DI is a good one:

Download and learn the geometry profiles, this is the best predictor of cut

Selected a 10k rock that appraises at tiffannys for double.
