    I’ve had only one person ever mention it.  It was my roommate, who was ring shopping herself at the time.

    Never. I don’t know the clarity of my ring, so I wouldn’t be able to answer the question anyway.

    People look, say it’s nice, comment about the fact that it’s simple yet elegant, just me, and might ask where we got it. That’s it. Anything beyond that would be just weird IMO.

    Nope.  And I wouldn’t know what to tell them if they asked.

    Only one person has asked me about the clarity of my ring (a friend, and we were discussing the whole “has to be a diamond” mentality), and to be honest I had to go and dig out my insurance & info card from our safe to answer them.

    Usually no one bothers asking anything about it other than what metal it is, and that it is nice/simple/elegant. And I am grateful for the lack of interest 🙂

    Like some of the previous posters, I don’t even know the details of my ring.

    nobody has ever asked me directly, but i did have a girl question why my ring was so much more sparkly than hers (our diamonds are about the same size)…she wouldn’t shut up about it so i finally told her it was likely mine had a higher clarity than hers. i later found out that i was right–mine is a VS and hers is an I1 (or I2..whatever is clearer).

    Nope, but I definitely notice the clarity of other peoples’ diamonds! I feel like it would kind of be a rude question though – akin to asking what carat size a diamond is, since it’s generally agreed that clearer (more clear?) diamonds are higher quality (at very least more expensive!) than their cloudier counterparts. 🙂

    Nope, no one has ever asked me about any of the “stats” of my ring.

    My diamond is SI1. I can’t see it even under a loupe. Here’s the inclusion picture from the vendor:

    “Eye clean” is all I really cared about in regards to clarity.

    Cut was the most important of the “4-C’s” to me.

    I am bigggg on diamonds and do value the 4 “C’s”.  But yes, clarity was important for me, as well as color.  Don’t get me wrong, I would have been excited regardless of what my Honey got me.  Just the thought of getting married to him makes me giddy!  But I am elated that he listened to me and got this ring! It’s funny bc I get comments about the size of my ring, bc it doesn’t have a big stance on my finger.  People say things like “oh it’s cute”, or “how dainty”, or “he’ll probably get you a bigger one later for your 5th or 10 anniversary”.  I just chuckle to myself because not everyone is gonna know that it’s a “Fancy Vivid” blue diamond surrounded by VS2 white diamonds!!  Tee hee.

    I have been asked quite a few times oddly enough.  I work at a bank so people look at my hands all day long.  I know the specs of my ring so I gladly share!  :o) [attachment=1538111,193595]
