leahsullyjohn:  You’re welcome. I just took a random shot of mine to show it looking like it has inclusions – but there aren’t any there!

leahsullyjohn:  in the second picture the dark spot in the center of the stone is the reflection of the girdle. I don’t see anything in the first picture, the dark spec doesnt look like an inclusion just a reflection. Sometimes it’s just the way the light is hitting the stone the may make you think there’s an inclusion. If your just now noticing things that like then I doubt there’s an inclusion that can be seen with the naked eye in the center of your diamond while viewing from the top. I wouldn’t worry about it, buying a loop isn’t going to do anything for you other than show you your diamonds imperfections. It’s beautiful and looks eye clean to me!

Here is a picture of my original ring. It looks like there’s a dark carbon spot, but there’s not its completely eye clean. Sometimes dark spots show up on a diamond in pictures that isn’t there in real life. This is probably just a reflection that the camera is picking up.

leahsullyjohn:  Don’t forget that diamonds are known to attract oil which can make it look spotty at times.  After 3yrs. of wearing it and loving it; I wouldn’t worry about it.  I think your set is stunning.

leahsullyjohn:  Thank you. I suppose you could call it bezel set. The stone is only raised slightly above the setting so it’s protected. It’s 1930’s so I’m not sure if they would have had a different name for the setting!

leahsullyjohn: the asymmetry makes it look like an inclusion. Given that it’s also not certed, I’m inclined to think it is, as eye clean certed stones go for more. 

That said, cut often hides inclusion(s) so I wouldn’t worry too much about it.
