I’m not an expert, but it could be dull because of something the jeweler left behind. Take it to them. They’ll know how to get it clean.

I definitely see what you’re talking about 🙁 Is it possible that something is caught underneath it?

@BakerBee16:  thats odd! … maybe try bringing it to a jewellery store so they can clean it in their machine and see if its some oil or something behind the stone thats collected some dirt.

It certianly doesn’t look right.  Take it to Kays for their opinion.  If they can’t fix it under warranty or for a reasonable price then I would shop around to a few private small jewelers to see if they can replace the diamond without damaging the ring.

i think kays automatically has some sort of warranty on their products. i’d just bring it in and have them check it out!

I would aboslutely bring it back to the jeweler’s. It is hard to determine what is causing the darkness/dullness. I am sorry!

@BakerBee16:  take it back to Kays. It really probably is just dirty. But if it isn’t, and they dont replace it, try a local jeweler. Honestly diamond melee that small won’t cost much to be replaced.

I hope it’s just an “oops” left behind by the jeweler!

How long have you had the ring? did it used to be clear? It could be a diamond with a large inclusion. Often the small diamonds in the halo are of lesser quality than the center stone. One of the downsides of buying online, you can’t see the clarity of the stones in person before purchasing.

idk if it’s broken, possibly an inclusion though? I only say this because my ring is an heirloom from my late grandmother and has a cracked/broken stone in it (long story, but I don’t want it replaced… at least not yet!) and while it looks cloudy due to the break, it’s never appeared that dark. 

sorry if this is big, but i got a close shot so you could see the diff well enough.
