If you love it why does it matter what other people think. Don’t return it if your only worry is how other people feel about it. It is not their ring to judge, it’s yours and if you love it that’s all that matters. ๐Ÿ™‚

Can you give us the more realistic stats as well as the price you paid? I agree with the above bee that as long as you love your ring, don’t worry about what other people think BUT you should definitely return the ring if you overpaid for the diamond due to misrepresentation.

Its beautiful. It’s your ring. Not other people. I don’t think most average people know the difference most see it as a diamond is a diamond. I know I don’t analyze others rings. So if your happy why question it.

hebee:  irrespective of how lovely it is, and it looks lovely to me, if it was mis-sold I would return it. 

If the stats were inflated then you presumably overpaid. 

Did you buy this off a jewellary retailer of from a private seller? If the former, I would report them and leave honest reviews online.

It’s hard to tell anything from a photo. Diamonds don’t perform their best in photos ๐Ÿ™‚

Is it eye clean? Does it look cloudy to you? Did the jeweler “grade it” in the setting? Is he actually a grader? Is the jeweler trying to sell you another ring? Do you have the original grading report? What lab graded it originally? What kind of inclusions are disclosed on the report?

Stop being worried about what other people will think. If you got ripped off that’s something to care about. If you hate the ring, that’s something to care about. Whether “people” will think it’s cloudy, that’s not something to care about.

Honestly id return it and go down to a 1.5 to get an excellent cut. It’s not the clarity I notice but the cut being off. I’ll bet youll be a lot happier with the sparkle/light return. 

But if you didn’t ask I would just think it’s a pretty ring that you go for an absolute STEAL, even with the inflated stats.

I mean… this isn’t surprising for an e-ring from Amazon. At that carat weight, a price tag of $2500 should give you a clue that its specs aren’t going to be great. And yes, coming with a certificate really doesn’t mean anything unless that certificate is from a reputable place. That said, it doesn’t look that bad to me, especially for $2500.

If you love it regardless of what it’s actual specs are, keep it. Enjoy it.

If you never loved it, can you still return?

hebee:  Hmm that’s tough then. If size is important to you, you won’t get anything close to even 1.5 ct with good specs at less than $5,000 (and even that is pushing it) unless you consider second hand/vintage rings. I think if you love the ring, you should keep it. $2,500 is probably about fair for a 1.76 ct diamond with those specs.

Daisy_Mae and kelmpm7809 are right! I believe that you should keep it unless the feather or color haunts you. I know what it’s like to be *very* particular to the point of irritating myself, but plenty of people are not and should not be based on what others think alone. That being said, I don’t think I would exchange my diamond for a better one because it now has sentimental value as the one he proposed with, which trumps my need for all things to be seemingly flawless. BUT, you are not me, or anyone else, and the choice is yours! Don’t make a decision based on what I (or anyone else) think(s)!
