A Turkish vendor wants to sell me a .24 carat low clarity diamond

Customer Question

A Turkish vendor wants to sell me a .24 carat low clarity diamond (engagement ring) for 950$ USD. Is this in a realistic price range? It is not GIA certified.
A chart I found online says quarter carat diamond should be in the 500-750 range but I don't know whether to trust that either.

I am going back to the jeweler in 20 minutes. From there I can add photos, ask relevant questions (I don't currently know what to ask) or give you any more info that will help you. I'm willing to pay for your help, thanks so much.

A photo would give a much better idea of the value of the ring. Do you know what the band is made of? The purity of the metal perhaps as well?
