That does seem EXTREMELY inexpensive for a half carat diamond…

The clarity and color don’t seem to be the best, but you never know, it could be a beautiful diamond!

I would wait until he proposes and see. You may come to love ot because of what it means, I think if you truly do not like it later on, you could say something.

Honestly, I am sort of a diamond snob and my diamond is a .50 carat princess cut but it is excellent cut, clarity and color. But if this was what my husband had proposed to me with, I would wear it proudly. At the end of the day, it is just a ring and you could always upgrade later!

The website says the diamond is K colour, I3 clarity. Wikipedia says “I3 diamonds have large and extremely easy to see inclusions that typically impact the brilliance of the diamond, as well as having inclusions that are often likely to threaten the structure of the diamond”.

I’d be extremely worried about the quality of this diamond, especially considering he only paid $166 for half a carat! Frown

He has apparently already been discussing this with your friend, so can she not talk to him and persuade him to return the ring? Even a plain band would probably look better than this, or he could get you another (cheaper) gemstone and upgrade to a diamond later when he’s earning more money?

It sounds like it’s out of your hands until he proposes anyway. I think the most fair approach is to see how you feel about it once it’s on your finger, and if you genuinely like it, forget everything you read about it. Engagement rings come in so many different shapes, sizes, and stats for a reason – each person may prioritize differently and choose accordingly.

@Kaitykait23:  And if “girls” (fitting, because real women wouldn’t be so catty) make fun of your ring, you will know whom to not be friends with. However you prioritize, someone will always think they would have chosen “better”, decent people just don’t judge you based on that.

Personally I would prefer a smaller higher quality diamond. The color wouldn’t bother me, but the clarity would.
