I cant but I’m sure some bees will swear they can.

@KaylaFromAR:  what’s the magnification?  i have a tiny carbot spot in a tiny diamond on my wedding band.  granted YOU probably couldn’t see it because you don’t know it’s there.  but i can see it, if i want to. it doesn’t stick out- but since i know it’s there, it’s easy for me to spot.    

being that i see that- and there are lots of spots in this diamond- i imagine you might still be able to see them quite easily, even if not magnified.  at least if you had enough time to look.  maybe not though- hard to take a guess!

Nah. If I don’t focus, I don’t even really notice them even at that magnification. I mean, obviously I can SEE them, but they don’t scream “LOOK AT ME.” Regular size, I wouldn’t notice them at all unless I was looking for them.

The first thing that you’d notice is the negative impacts on lightplay. Then, yes the next thing you’d see is a sort of peppery effect.

I think you would notice this, yes.

If it were mine it would drive me batty.  If it were someone else’s I probably wouldn’t even notice.  I just don’t examine jewelery on other people, if it’s something I like I might ask to take a closer look and compliment it but even then I wouldn’t be examining it.

I don’t know why but for me I want a clear stone to be clear at least on me, so even if it looked like that close up in person and it was someone else’s jewelry it wouldn’t bother me. 

The funny thing is I love natural emeralds because of their flaws, lab created ones creep me out because they look too perfect.  But I have several emeralds, they are cheap (relatively) and especially when I got mine natural ones were even cheaper than lab created (no idea if that’s still true or not, it’s been 7 years since I bought my last one).

I say if you’re fine with it go for it!

@KaylaFromAR:  I think I would be able to notice. Perhaps not every single one, but yeah, I think I’d be able to see some. I don’t make it a habbit to check people’s diamonds though, it really isn’t that important to me. I just like pretty rings, regardless of stone or quality!
