Maybe it’s just me but at the jewelry store I could see a massive difference between half carat stones and 3/4 carat stones, but not much of a difference between 3/4 carat and one carat. Is this all in my head? maybe it was the cut of the stones (all round brilliants) but I’ve noticed the same thing online. Does anyone have any reference pictures?
I’ve seen the charts but I’d like to see personal pictures if anyone has any!
Another thing, I looked at a diamond that was listed as I color and I1 clarity. I had it next to my H colored SI1 diamond, and it blew mine out of the park. The woman at this local shop said she had no idea why it was rated that. None of us could see any inclusions. Completely eye clean stone. Through the jewlers loop I found one small black dot in the bottom after about 10 minutes. How did this gorgeous diamond get such a crappy rating?
Are the ratings just very different from stone to stone? Like some I1’s look like shit and some look awesome? Confused 🙂 Thanks girls
