Some days my ring looks a little yellowish. But I don’t know if that’s a clarity issue or my finger underneath Undecided

Well, every diamond technically has a flaw in their ring =]

My friend has an emerald cut that has a large blemish. She loves it. It makes it hers.

Mine are hidden by the cut of my center stone but if i look real real hard, i can spot deviations in a ‘perfect’ stone in the smaller ones.

I think it’s kinda fun to go hunting =]

My diamond is set a little crookedly.  Its inherited from FI’s great-grandmother though, so I’m not complaining.  I only notice because 6 months later, I still find myself staring at it for minutes at a time.  Its so sparkly!  Maybe after we recover from the wedding costs, I’ll have it looked at, but for now its not a major concern.

i did, but we got it fixed. it came to me with a chip in it. it was a 4th generation ring, from his great grandma, so it had a lot of wear and tear. every jeweler we took it to said that the chip made it extremely weak in that area, and if i banged it in the same place i could easily crack the whole diamond, which scarred the crap out of me, so we got it recut. good as new!

It doesn’t bug me, but my sapphire isn’t cut in a perfectly balanced way. I’m sure I am the only one who will ever notice, though.

The slight imperfections from getting it sized down do bug me. Eventually I will address that.

I have a perfect center stone. Flawless D diamond. Well since this took up a lot of FI’s budget when he chose my side stones he looked at two pairs and naturally he chose the one that was less expensive. They probably wouldn’t be that bad but since they are next to a flawless diamond they look a lot worse. One is lower on the color grade and the other has noticeable flaws. O well I love that he custom made my dream ring and at 22 I have over a 2ct diamond ring. We will probabaly upgrade in a couple of years, so then I’ll have a nice pair of earings =)

Mine is a fairly yellow stone all things considered, and does have a large flaw.  But that said, I rarely notice either. 

The stone was my Nana’s and I love it.  (Its also ENRONMOUS, 1.8 ct) It’s got 48 years of good relationship Karma attached to it and it makes me think of the wonderful relationship my grandparents had and all the trouble my Grandpa had to go through to marry my Nana. So the flaws actually make me happy.

I have no noticeable flaws in my ring… I know its not “prime” stone or anything… I didn’t want him to spend the money on “perfection.”

I’ve only noticed a speck in a ring ONCE, and I was looking at it through a macro lens 🙂

You can see a small flaw when you stare at the ring for long periods of time (like I do.)  But it was an heirloom from Fi’s family and a beautiful setting, so I don’t care.  It’s just mine until it’s time to pass along anyway.

I have a princess cut and if you look closely, you can see a blemish in the ring. I don’t mind it at all though. The stone is incredibly white. I really like my diamond!

My beautiful yellow diamond has a filimentous inclusion that I can only see when I look through the girdle. (Like when would you ever do that!)  I love it because I can know without a doubt that no one pulled a swaparoo when I get it cleaned or worked on!

As far as I can tell no flaws in my diamonds, but my bands are super thin and after my engagement ring broke, I was told that it might happen again because of the design.  But the jeweler won’t charge us to repair it if it ever happens again.  Since both my wedding band and my engagement band are the same it’s double-trouble!  Hopefully our jeweler never goes out of business!
