I really love the Asha’s and probably would have gotten one if I hadn’t wanted a diamond with visible inclusions (long story behind this). I actually looked at the exact one you have! It truly is a stunning ring.

@NovaRising:  I don’t have a picture of my ring on this computer, but I’ll try to get one! It’s pretty much like your’s but round not cushion and no diamonds on the band (the jeweler told FI that the diamonds would fall off so he went for a plain band, even though he could have just ordered it in my size and the band would have been fine!). My setting is also a bit higher, though I’d have prefered a lower profile like your’s!

I actually never really explained it on here, but I might one day write a full thread on it, but I’ll share my story with you. When FI and I met he was taking a course in college about gemstones and was learning about diamonds in that class. So when we met he had made a joke about the birthmark/freckle thing on my nose (I’ve an otherwise fair face with no freckles or marks) being an “inclusion”. I think I said something like “Oh, so I’m not perfect then?” trying to be a smart a and he said “No, no. Even though diamonds that have no inclusions are extremely rare, you’d never be able to tell two perfect diamonds apart just by looking at them. When you look at a diamond with a visible inclusion you can tell right away if it is yours or not. No two diamonds will ever have the exact same inclusion, in the exact same spot, and the exact same cut, it is unique, and I think that it is better to be unique than perfect.” (Or something to that matter, this conversation DID happen over 5 years ago) At the time I thought it was a pretty cheesy pick up line, but as I got to know him I realized that is just his personality. He’s a bit of an oddball and I love it. So that is how my little nose mark became my “inclusion” and he’ll kiss it and say he loves his little inclusion. I guess it is his way of calling me “unique”. When we started looking at rings we looked into getting Asha because I really do think you can get more bling for your buck. But anyway we were talking one night and he mentioned my inclusion and I said “why not get a diamond with a visible inclusion?” and he thought it would be perfect, but that inclusions in a diamond can make it less sparkly. So we started on the hunt to find the perfect diamond WITH a visible inclusion but was just as sparkly as one without (we got some odd looks from jewellers when we mentioned we were looking for a diamond with visible inclusions). I also loved the idea of being able to look at MY diamond and know that it is MINE just by looking at the inclusion. Anyway, we found a canadian mined diamond that had ONE very visible carbon inclusion right along the edge but was sparkly and beautiful. When we got it mounted in the set (FI picked the set) he made sure the jeweler didn’t cover the inclusion with a prong (though it is very NEAR the prong but you can still see it). FI could have gotten me a diamond without a visible inclusion, but then I would have wanted an Asha, and my diamond is my diamond no doubt about it. Beautiful inclusion and all.

((disclaimer, there is NOTHING wrong with a visibly clean diamond! this is just a unique story to me and my FI!))

Edit: gah, that was long!
