peteilo:  I don’t have an oval, I have a heart. I’m pretty sure it’s an I1, because that is the clarity of all the rings at the chain my husband got ir from. Honestly? I don’t see any inclusions. My ring is only a .25 though, so I think size really makes a difference. I’m sure if I looked at it under a loupe, I’d see something, but I’ve looked at it from every angle and don’t see anything! I feel kind of dumb, because I should be a Weddingbee ring board gemologist by now. 

My ring, looking pretty clear.

It looks kind of white here? Is it cloudy? I don’t know.

Some glamour shots. Regardless of the low clarity, she still gets her rainbow on.

peteilo:  Thank you! Like I said, IRL, I don’t see anything.

What size stone do you want? I think inclusions are more noticeable on larger stones, but I don’t think they detract from their beauty, especially with a fancy cut.

ETA:Diamonds by Lauren is a good site to see IRL pics of differest cut/size stones with different clarities. Lots of hand shots too!

This Diamonds by Lauren rin is an I1 and 1 carat

.55 Si2

.53 I1

GIA 3ct SI2 G color eye clean. princess cut are not cut graded by GIA but it is GCAL rated excellent.

i have no issue with the clarity grade, it’s eye clean and EXTREMELY well cut. I actually was going to buy a better clarity stone but I fell in love with the facet pattern. When I look into it it seems to be endlessly deep which I LOVE. The g is a bit warmer I only notice it slightly when it’s absolutely clean but if I had to do it again I’d leave the clarity and upgrade the color if I could find the same faceting otherwise I’m totally in love with it.

peteilo:  99% of the time no. When the light hits it in certain situations there’s a feather that shows but it’s rare that I see it. Idk where you’re shopping around at, but you’re able to see all the diamonds that James Allen has in stock in whatever parameters you set for the 4 Cs on a 40x loupe so you can weed out the really included/cloudy ones.

peteilo:  Not a ring, and not an EGL cert, but I have a GIA certified SI2 diamond pendant; it has a feather inclusion at the side, which I can’t see with my naked eye (so, it’s eye-clean). It was from Blue Nile, and the other specs are F colour, triple-X, 0.41ct:

With that clarity, and partciularly with a lab less stringent than GIA, I would advise seeing it in person, or at least making sure you can return it, or, purchase from somewhere like James Allen as PP suggested where you can view magnified images to get a good idea. I would also avoid cloud inclusions.

Hope This Helps
