I definitely love my imperfect diamond. Its I2-I3 nearly colorless 2.53 ct excellent cut diamond. I know where the inclusions are because I know where to look. I don’t see anything wrong with buying flawed diamonds. They need love too. Lol

@Sharlawalford:  I know this is old, but maybe you’ll see this. I was curious what kinds of inclusions your ring has, because it looks so gorgeous. Are they obvious or do you have to look? Feathering or black carbon spots? I’m looking at SI3s (I know, EGL is the devil blah blah blah), and they sent me a blown up picture showing black dots, but I don’t know if they’d be easy or even possible to see in person.

Hello!

I recieved a half carat round cut solataire diamond. 

It is actually my second one becuase the first one had at least 6 lines in it and it really annoyed me. I got this new one and it sparkles so much and it very high in clairity. and i had it for 2 weeks and then noticed VERY small dots, not many but a few. NO one can see them but me because I stare at it and move it around and focus on it. 

I try very hard not to get annoyed at it but sometimes it gets the best of me. I think its perfect most of the time and then sometimes see them and get discouraged. 

How can I get over this! I want to love the imperfections!

This thread has convinced me to look at lower clarity. I like the idea of being able to identify my stone so that I’ll always know it’s mine…

My ring has no carbon spots that I see under my mom’s loupe, but it does have a faint clear-ish feather on one of the sides. I can only see it from a certian angle in daylight & in the loupe at the same angle. It helps me know which way is the “right way” to wear my ring. because I’m odd and like it always to face the same way hahaha
