I’m not a diamond expert but it’s a no from me. I LOVE salt and pepper diamonds but there’s something about the pattern of the inclusion that doesn’t sit well with me in addition to the crumbling bottom.

You would lose a lot of weight if they tried to even it out.  That’s the only reason they would leave it like that when they half ass facet the tops.  Also-just a word to the wise-I fell in love with those “diamonds” that appeared severely included and filled with color as well.  Not once but twice on ebay I got burned from different sellers because neither tested as a diamond.  So honestly you really don’t know what you’re getting.  I wouldn’t waste my time.

I think it’s really stunning, and if it’s a good deal and you can afford it and you want to buy it by all means. I probably wouldn’t set this in a ring you want to wear everyday, maybe a pendant or ring for special occaisions?

…this stone is clearly damaged. I personally would not consider it.

Definitely not with the chips. If you bang it on something it could break. Love peachy s&p diamonds though, so keep looking!

lemonsandlife71 :  it’s beautiful and I’d buy depending on price. I wouldn’t use it for a sentimental piece but I would  buy  it for a pretty ring I’d wear on my right hand asid worry about longevity.

You Could also set in such a way that protects the underside from being accidentally hit. My engagement ring has a decorative metal basket that covers the underside of my ring. It’s a pain to clean but could definitely be utilised to stabilise the bottom of your stone.
