@canarydiamond:  My stone is a VS2 and I honestly can’t see any flaws. I looked at it through a loupe and still couldn’t see them. If you’re worried about it being eye-clean and you’re shopping online, I know that at jamesallen you can ask a representative if it’s eye-clean and they will tell you. They were honest about it with us and made some alternative recommendations when we liked a stone that we were not sure about.

I have a 2 ct SI1 and cannot see any flaws. It really is going to depend on the stone, which is why you need to see them in person and not just buy based on specs.

I have a VS2, H Colour, Ideal Cut from Bluenile and it is SPECTACULAR! It is 100% eyeclean. I did get to look at it in the loupe and I can see a little feathering at the bottom but thats it. Make sure you do ideal cut however..because that really is the most important thing.

VS2 by definition should be eye clean.  I have a VS2 and cant even find the inclusions with a loupe. They’re in there somewhere, the jewler pointed them out to my husband when he bought it…. probablay helped the stone was perfectly clean.  I wouldnt worry about VS2 clarity.

Love BlueNile. Their appraisal was 3000.00 more then what my Fiance paid, and our appraisal here was 5000.00 more. Great customer service too.

You’re overthinking this. A VS2 should 99.9999% of the time be completely eye-clean. I think the definition is “somewhat easy to find under 10x magnification by a trained jeweler.”

Agree with PP.  I have a VS2 and just like pinkshoes I can’t find the inclusion even with my loupe (yes I am a nerd and I have a loupe at home).

If it’s well cut, you shouldn’t see anything.

I want to address your question of inclusions weakening the diamond. It depends where they are located. If a flaw is in the middle of a stone, then yes it might weaken the diamond. If it is off to the side, then generally that’s more desirable as long as it is not visible to the naked eye.

You should not have any problem with a VS2!  Something to keep in mind, though – Blue Nile does not have their stones on site.  If you ask them if a stone is eye clean, they will ask their vendors and the vendors of course are most interested in a sale.  I am not saying Blue Nile is bad, I know plenty of people who have gorgeous stones from there.  But if I were purchasing a larger stone like a 2 carat, I would want them to have the stone on site to really tell me what they see!  I know Whiteflash has them on site, and maybe James Allen, but I’m not positive about JA.  Just something to think about!

I love bluenile! The best part about them (other than the price and selection!) is the 30 day return policy! So I think that should give you more confidence. If you get the stone and it isn’t exactly what you hoped it would be, it is no problem at all to return it.

@CorgiTales:  I totally used that return policy too! One of my side stones didn’t look right. I sent it back and they fixed it, no questions asked.
