I would have personally gone for a pink moissy if I wanted a sparkly pink stone. But if you love it and it has a lifetime warranty I wouldn’t stress. 

Also. Festive nails.

If you’ve done a lot of research on coated diamonds and it comes with a lifetime warrenty then you shouldn’t worry about it. It does seem like the price is alittle high for an SI1 but this is the first time I’ve never heard of a coated diamond. It’s awsome you can get a pink diamond for so cheap. It’s really pretty and I’m sure once it’s in a setting you’ll love it.

I don’t know about coated diamonds but did you mean 6k for the setting and stone or just the diamond? Just wondering.

JLo84:  I wouldn’t worry about it. 

I have a blue diamond which for the price we paid couldn’t possibly be naturally blue. I ‘think’ it is irradiated rather than coated but I didn’t actually ask so I cant be sure. I bought it because it is a diamond, so hard (I wanted Emerald but Jewellers advised me against it when I told them how hard I intended to be on my ring!) and I love the colour, I always wanted a coloured stone and the dark green, light blue, and teal shades this thing turns in different lights is beautiful.

If you have a lifetime warrantee then your ring will always look the way you love and you are buying it for love and not as an investment. I say enjoy.

Seems like an awful lot of money for such a low clarity, but if you love it thats what matters

Wait- was the diamond itself $6000? Does being coated give it more value? I looked up stats on Blue Nile and a 0.8 Color D with a very good cut and the same clarity is $4200 so if the diamond was actually $6000 that seems kind of overpriced unless the coating adds value.

Not to be a killjoy but I really don’t think that was the wisest purchase. Nothing wrong with a coated, SI diamond at all…it’s simply that the price paid for that size/specs was way too high IMO.

from what I understand (and I could be wrong) a color coated diamond is one that already had the color but was so light it was worth less (a pink stone looking really light brown, a blue looking light gray). So the treatment is to bring out the color to a level that would make it worth thousands more (but its treated so it’s not at the same level as a natural colored stone of the same hue) 


i think it looks amazing personally.  I’m a diamond girl so I would have gone for the diamond over the mossy or sapphire.

Show us the ring when you get it designed!

Very pretty. This is the first I’ve heard of coating diamonds.

Does the coating process make it more expensive? My diamond is the same size, G color, VVS2, ideal cut and it was around $2000 less than yours. I don’t think it was a mistake to buy it if it is what you wanted, but you might want to check to make sure they offered you a fair price.

LilLis:  I also have a blue diamond, and those are created by irradiation. 


colored stones are gorgeous – and your pink one is fabulous! πŸ™‚

It’s a gorgeous rock! I also would be a little wary of price. My 1 carat F VVS2 was around the $6k mark. I would look further into the specs and value if I were you. Sorry :-/
