1234sophia:  I think it depends on where on the inclusions scale you are.  If you’ve gone from not visible to the naked eye to visible to the naked eye that can make a huge difference.

1234sophia:  I believe the “shiny-ness” has a lot more to do with the cut and color than the inclusion scale.

I’d love to see photos! It sounds like your ring is gorgeous! Even if the inclusions are SI hardly anyone will ever notice but you.

The sparkle depends more on the cut than clarity.

Do you have the exact specs on your new diamond?

Remember, diamonds with the exact same specifications will act completely different in person.

1234sophia: Are you within your return period? If you don’t like how this diamond “behaves”, you should keep searching until you do.

Cut, colour, carat, clarity, and various measurements of the table, crown, pavilion, culet, flourescence (sp) etc. are just some of the things that factor into the overall “look” of a diamond. Not everyone has a diamond that is the best in all categories because the cost would be astronomical.

To answer your questions, yes clarity is one of the things that might interfere with the overall sparkle of a diamond. Cut, however, is one of the most important factors. Is it cut too deeply?  Sometimes that takes away from the look, size of table, sparkle…

In any event, I don’t know the answer why your diamond isn’t displaying the same sparkle your old diamond was. Because we all have to put a dollar figure on our purchases, you need to buy a diamond that meets one or two of your requirements. You wanted a bigger diamond right? It filled that need.

I realize how upsetting it can be to see imperfections in your stone. Let the memory of your old stone go. You have a new one that signifies the love you and your FI share. Try to embrace that.

FWIW – even though the pic is blurry, your stone looks gorgeous – the finger coverage is fabulous!

It’s not the clarity, it’s the cut. Very good doesn’t sparkle like excellent/ideal cut sym polish

I should have added- be that as it may I’m sure your diamond to the eye is lovely and doesn’t “suck”! If there’s a return window and it’s not doing it for you though, might as well.

I’m sure it doesn’t “suck” Lol I have a princess cut diamond in  my old set and even though it has better clarity than my round brilliant the round sparkles more. Your ring looks very nice on you btw!
