Well, if you’re not happy with it, return it and keep looking? Can I ask what is so hard about finding a not inclusioned diamond? Is it a special shape?

this doesn’t sound right at all. unless you paid very, very little, it shouldn’t be hard to find a stone without inclusions. talk to your jeweler and see what he can do.

if your jeweler will let you return it, you could buy a diamond from blue nile.

Is it a certified stone? What is the clarity grade? I doesn’t make any sense that is would take him so long to find an eye clean stone! I would return it and find a much better deal through a diamond wholesaler like brian gavin diamonds online.

hi! sorry ab your ring…are you sure it’s not a facet in the way the stone was cut? or is could even be windowing with some reflection coming off the prongs/head of the setting. or it could be the bow tie effect. i might suggest visiting the betterthandiamond (btd) discussion boards, there are tons of jewelers/gemologists/people who know their jewelry there. just a thought…you can post a pic and they could tell you what you need to know. it might not be an inclusion at all! 🙂

I don’t think it was dishonest of him at all, especially if you have the GIA report right in front of you. Get a new one if you’re not happy with it, but you can’t blame anyone else for you not liking it 😀

Oh wow, okay. Well at least that rules out a shoddy lab cert. I’m gonna go ahead and advise that you take it back and wait for the jeweler to swap it out for something else. Did you specifically say in the work order that you wanted an eye-clean stone? If so, this jeweler did not follow through, and he should technically have a legal obligation to make it a “priority” to correctly follow through on the order. You do not want to hang onto this stone though. I’m sure it’s perfectly lovely, and that no one else will ever see the inclusion, but the fact that you can will never stop bothering you. You ought to love everything about your ring! Best of luck.

@CantWaitToBeWed: just a note, I’m not so sure it would be the best idea to go to a diamond alternative forum to seek out advice about a diamond. I’d suggest pricescope if you’d like some expert opinions (on diamonds, rather than alternatives).

actually, they DO have forums for diamonds and ALL other gemstones as well. and to be honest, they are a lil nicer than the people you interact with on pricescope,

but to OP…pricescope does offer a lot of opinions as well. i hope you can get a definite answer and let us know what you decide to do. 🙂
