you make some very good points! I do love how it looks, I’m more looking to see how other people’s reaction would be as I really know zero about rings! The whole thing started with me contemplating getting it set in a halo setting but then reading a post about a girl that did this with a diamond that was a bit cloudy, and ended up very unhappy as the contrast between the diamonds surrounding the center ring was so big that it made the center rock look dull in comparison. And then I wasn’t sure if I’d look like a complete dufus walking around with a ring that was very “bad” quality. -haha, see what I mean about knowing.nothing about diamonds? 😀 I love the fact that it is inherited but I also know my boyfriend only wants us to use it if it’s a “good” diamond (whatever that means). Pretty much I guess I’m wondering if it, immediately at first glance, looks like it’s of poor quality. Or if the cloudiness is just another quickly quality which makes it unique 🙂
hopefully my ramblings make some sense! 😀

I’ve had a lot of people react to the cut of the diamond! I had it tested so I’m fairly sure it’s a real diamond, but I can totally see where u get that from!

yes your ramblings make perfect sence! do some research on diamonds for yourself. Personally I feel like Jewelry is what you make of it. It has no intrinisic value only the dollar amount we assign to it. So get what you love. My BF and I had differences in what we like. He wanted perfect good quality diamond for me. Flawless/ colorless. But I wanted something else and we setled on something that most people would condiser as bad quality and an undiserable diamond! But at the end of the day I LOVE it and that is what matters. After all not many people are going to pull out a scope and examine your diamond and if they do I would get some new friends. LOL If you do not like the contrast of a halo setting, go classic and let it’s beauty shine in a solitare setting. Check out my thread: Diamonds…Are they all hype? I was having some doubts, and the other bees reasssured me. It was my first post, so please forgive my slightly offensive tone.

Its a pretty stone even if it’s not a perfect one. I think it will look great once it’s set. It’s an heirloom and it’s free! If you get it apraised you will know just how much you saved! Haha.
I had a friend who went for size over quality. A huge 5ct diamond that cost about $3000. Can you imagine what it looked like? She didn’t care. She loved it. She thought it had “character” and loved that it was huge.
