Does your ring have any imperfections??

Mine’s got a couple, some of which I’m not happy about– but I love my ring, so I’m not going to say a word about it except maybe one, haha.

My stone setting is a little crooked, like if it was screwed into the ring, it wasn’t quite screwed in all the way. It’s a miniscule difference, but it’s there. The metal of the prongs is also more yellow than the platinum ring, so I’m thinking they might have given us a white gold one. I’ll definitely be talking to them about fixing that. The only other thing that I’ve noticed is that one of my side diamonds (a baguette) appears to have two very small, very dark inclusions. But as I’m not really sure what the heck I’m talking about, I don’t really know.

Either way, I’m not givin’ it up and you can’t make me! Ha ha.

You probably want your jeweler to take a peek at the prong. It might not be a problem at all, but you want to make sure there’s no way your stone can come loose!

Mine has tons, but it’s an heirloom ring– it was my grandmother’s (not her engagement ring, but one she bought once she could afford it), then my mom’s, now mine.  So it has a zillion dings and is missing a few of the tiny diamonds in the setting, and is a little bit crooked.  But I adore it.  One day I’ll probably get the little diamonds replaced on the side they’re missing from, but it doesn’t bother me.  I see the imperfections as a sign it’s been loved.  But with yours, it would definitely bother me, since it was supposed to be new and perfect!  Can you take it back to the jeweler and see if they will replace the setting?

Yep, my diamond actually has two little chips, besides that the diamond is absolutely perfect. The band also has a few dings in it.

I don’t mind at all though, because it was my great grandmother’s ring before it was mine, so (like the poster above me said) I see the dings as a sign that it was well loved. 🙂

mine had a chip in it… and other dings. it’s my husband’s great grandma’s, so it’s been around a while and had lots of wear and tear. everyone that we went to said that if i hit the diamond in the same place the chip was i could crack the whole diamond which scared the crap out of me, so we got it recut. i really wouldn’t have cared other than the fact that i didn’t want to ruin it his family diamond, so it’s all fixed now.

Mine as a teeny imperfection, and only I notice it because I am constantly looking at it and am mesmerized by the sparkles… haha.  The ring is a split shank and where the split merge one side is filled in more than the other.  No biggie… makes it uniquely mine.

My setting is not perfect, but it’s an estate piece (not a family heirloom, just vintage) so I expected an 80 year old ring to have some flaws! I had to have the prongs replaced because the original ones were too old and weren’t holding the diamond properly.

Lol, am I the only girl out there without a “perfect” diamond?  Mine’s not an estate piece…it’s just all my amazing fiance could afford and I LOVE it!   I told him I didn’t need a ring, but he got me one anyway because he wanted me to feel special – and I do! 🙂

My diamond is an SI2, so yes, it does have imperfections. Can I see them with the naked eye? No way. Therefore, I don’t care at all! We saved a boatload of money by expanding our diamond search to include SI clarity grades, and I’m so glad we did!

I have a six-prong solitaire and the prongs aren’t perfectly evenly spaced. It drove me nuts when I first noticed it, but now I’m kind of over it.

My diamond apparently has inclusions that can be seen with the naked eye. I guess I’d make a terrible jeweller because I cant see anything – even without my glasses on, and Im myopic so my up close vision is usually pretty impressive. All I can see is sparkles!

For the longest time, I thought the one prong was lifted off the stone (there was a teeny hairline space, or so I thought) that I could only see if I held it up to light and looked SUPER close. It drove me nuts. Then, a week or so ago, I realized the prong is directly on a facet and the facet picks up the light of whatver is behind it. The prong is perfectly set on the stone, which eased my mind a great deal, but now I think two of my prongs are eeeever so slightly bent. LOL! I’m just going to enjoy my ring and go with it… like a previous poster said, it makes it uniquely mine. 🙂
