(Closed) Do you think you could quickly spot inclusions if this wasn't magnified?

Depends on the type and position of the inclusion.  When I was first looking I went to a jared and could see the clouds and pinpoints all over their favorite si stones and even vs. The vs2 gia I got I can see if the light hits it absolutly perfectly and I’m looking for it.  I was not impressed with the igi grading most of them were clearly like the one at the start of this thread and it would have bothered me in a bigger stone, if we were talking smaller like .25 or possibly .5 I don’t think those pinpoints would be to noticeable to the unaided eye or someone not starting at the diamond from less than a foot.

Yes , I actually can. Fiance and many friends are in the jewelry business. I can usually spot flaws based on their color play. I actually sit there and separate stones based on their flaws. Of course, they are inspected under further magnification as well. It is part of my job.

I do think you’d be able to see those inclusions.  Since there are so many and they are spread out all over the table, they will affect the light return, causing you to be able to see them even more than if it were a stone with optimum light performance.  I might consider this for a RHR or a pendant, but not an ering.  🙂

@KaylaFromAR:  ditto what cmbr said… WB isn’t a good place to ask about diamond specs — go to Pricescope and there are lots of members that will be more than happy to help you get the best stone for the money.  🙂

yes.  I think they are easy to see in real life too.

@KaylaFromAR:  whoa yes. that is some serious carbon action. a feather here and there and a well cut diamond can go unnoticed but something like that would be incredibly noticeable to me. to me, this diamond would be a poster child for “obvious inclusions.”

have you looked at any actually eye clean diamonds? massive difference.

It’s pretty obvious to me and it does bother me – but it doesn’t matter, because it’s your stone and you love it!  Who cares what other people think?

Yes, that stone looks like absolute crap. Not even for free would I wear it, sorry but you asked. You can do better!
