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

Customer Question
A Turkish vendor wants to...
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.

Hello and Welcome to Just Answer,

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?
