@chloees_mom:  You’re talking 4 tenths of a millimeter.  That’s a teeny tiny difference.  A table of 6.5mm is ideal proportion, which I belive less than 1% of all diamonds are cut as because you lose too much rough.  In other words most diamonds do not have ideal proportions.

Diamond size goes by weight anyway.  So if your lab report says you have a 1 carat diamond then that’s what you have. You haven’t been “cheated” at all.

Since you asked, I would just suck it up.  If you really wanted all the flash you could afford, then I would have dropped lower in the color and gotten something bigger for the same price.

My e-ring diamond is .42ct.  So you already have something much bigger than I had.

Well since you’re asking, that isn’t a very good spread. Your stone must be cut deep. What are the crown and table proportions? If you’re within the return period, it wouldn’t hurt to look at others. If you love your diamond, that’s what matters. I personally would probably feel cheated and return it.
