I found a really beautiful princess cut diamond.. VS1 clarity but has a cavity in the upper left corner? Would this be a problem? I plan on getting V-prongs and think that it should cover it up and since its graded VS1 it shouldn’t be too large? Any advice on this? what would you do?

Can you see it just by looking at it or do you need a scope? If it couldn’t be seen without a scope I would probably still be interested depending on the other specs and just consider the birth mark as a way that makes my stone unique. I don’t know how I would feel if it’s visible though.

I personally can’t see it and the diamond is completely clean other than that. It really is beautiful! I just don’t want to have to worry about the durability of the diamond. I heard some people never have problems with cavities though and it will be covered by the prong.. insurance covers things like that right? or no?

The corners on a princess cut are its weakest points, so if the flaw is too close to the corner it will make the diamond susceptible to breakage. If you haven’t I would suggest that you view it yourself under a microscope just so you know exactly what you are getting.
Aside from that the V-prongs should help keep it relatively safe. You might just want to consider removing your ring for any activity where the ring might get banged around. Also, definitely check in with your insurer!

I used to have a princess and it ended up cracking and I think it might have been due to something like this.
