What exactly did she say to them when she noticed? I haven’t ever heard of this before, but I would be afraid that they would deny a different stone being put into the ring

Wow, that’s ridiculous… but I guess it makes sense to get the ring independently re-appraised if the stone is replaced. Details about her interaction with the store?

Fortunately, I know exactly where the inclusion is in my stone (its not a VS). It’s not really noticeable, but with some looking I can find it, it’s like a fingerprint (one unexpected advantage of not spending the big bucks we didn’t have for an “eye clean” diamond).

Is the diamond certified or laser inscribed? I have never heard of this happening IRL, I thought it was some horrible jewelry urband legend!

@KatyElle: Based on how I’m reading it, she knew she was getting it replaced- her previous stone was chipped. 

So, basically, she had to get a new stone, and they gave her one of a lesser quality when they replaced it.

That is great that she noticed! I am reading it as she had to have the stone replaced too.

If your stone is certified then it is laser inscribed so you shouldn’t have to worry if you are having it checked, cleaned, dipped, etc, because you will know your stone by the inscription.

@tinylittlebird: Oh, because you can have chips buffed out, I didn’t think the jewelers would just switch it out automatically like that.

I thought the only way to “fix” a chipped diamond was to get it recut? which will make it smaller.
