maybe they meant the tiny diamonds in halos or pavé settings?  They’re so tiny you can’t really see colour in them, and then the bigger center stones would be of a higher colour grade?

@MrsAL2012:  My original 1/2 carat round diamond had a small light-colored feather inclusion that could be seen if I held it up to my eye and squinted. When I upgraded, I bought another I stone, because my old one never bothered me.  In fact, I liked having the inclusion because I knew it was mine after having it worked on or cleaned! I think cut and color are much more important to the naked eye.

Mall jewlers often try to sell them.

Edited because I don’t want to offend anyone.

Mine are SI2 -3 clarity diamonds…I got my ring of an ebay seller but had it resized by a local jeweller who told me all but one of my stones face up higher that an SI 2 -3 clarity. He said one had a visible carbon dot on the edge of the stone. So it was definately an I clarity. I can see it now that it was pointed out to me but I dont really care as my ring sparkles like crazy and we got it for the interesting design of the setting….and for under a $1000 we didn’t expect any different!!Laughing

mine is an I1-I2 but a really good cut and color. It came set in platinum. We got it at an estate jewelers who thought he was giving us a whoite gold setting. The price was great…traded it for a larger pear shaped halo ring that I disliked plus some misc jewelry.Its 1 ct, sparkles great and is pretty darn colorless. I can see a carbon spot sometimes, but only in certain  light when I look at it in certain positions. It doesnt bother me at all 🙂  Some people are more sensitive than others, and I am a complete realist when it comes to finances. You have to see the stone to really know if you will like it. make sure you look at it outside, away from the lights in the store 🙂

Mine is H-I clarity, VS-2 (.54 carots).  I love it.  It is so beautiful, clear and sparkly.  So sparkly.  I don’t think mine is white, or colorish at all.  Although, I didn’t get any say in the matter, it was an heirloom ring.  I was even surprised to find out it was graded at an H-I, as I thought it would have been considered clearer.  I love the ring, and the diamond, and I am so honored to have it.

I have no shame ….  My baby gir’s center stone is a 1.75 ct F – clarity I1.  The lil flaws she has represents the lil flaws that I have as well.  I am not perfect so why should I judge a beautiful stone with minors flaws that only I may see or  know all about.  To the normal eye you can’t see unless I point out details of things.  Just imagine a world with everyone looking the same and being judged as not beautiful because you have a flaw or two.  For me part of the charm is knowing my baby girl is not perfect.  The same way Fiance loves me and accepts myimperfections, I love my ering as well.  I wear her proudly… no shame in  having a lil spot or small blemish.. Just means she is unique just like her owner Laughing

two of these are GIA I1 clarity the last EGL USA…



this is under macro photography with no photoshopping the white inclusions.  I clarities can be beautiful or ugly, just like SI’s, and even VS’s sometimes that have carbon or feathers in central places.  can’t judge them by their certificate.  gotta see them in person
