What you’re seeing is a table reflection and diamonds have them too. Culets (not cutlets smile) are usually only found on old cuts and look like this “hole” in the centre of the diamond:

Me too!!!! I had my heart set on a F1 H&A but I can’t take my eyes off of the little black hole. I changed my mind to have a lab grown diamond instead. More pricy but I increasingly started to feel like some of the characteristics of a moissanite were not sitting well with me.

If it bothers you, look at non rounds. You might prefer a crushed ice style  cushion or oval.

jennynyc15 :  This has nothing to do with the culet (not cutlet LOL) The diamonds I picked to highlight table refelctions are both Whiteflash ACAs and graded AGS 000. Again, see my posts above explaining culets and table reflections.

jennynyc15 :  You can see a table reflection in both.. it just depends on individual perception I guess.

The reflection bothers me too, OP. Have you considered shapes other than round? 

Here is a comparison of an OEC vs Ring Bearer. The OEC has a culet.
