I don’t think that hard water can etch a diamond. We also have VERY hard water, and my stone looks just as good after 1.5 years. Try scrubbing it with a baby toothpaste and mild soap. That’s how I clean mine.

If that doesn’t work, I would take it for a better inspection. A jeweler will be able to tell you if it is damaged or not. I suggest going to the one where the ring was purchased from if possible. If not, try a local store, not a chain store. You’re more likely to get better help without the “you should just buy a white diamond” sales pitch.

Good luck!

@hiroshymatetrastar:  i know this post is old..but maybe it’s a “non”-flaw you never noticed before…black diamonds are actually one big flawed diamond so any space where it isn’t flawed is noticed (opposite to white diamonds) ….I started seeing flaws  (or non-flaws)on mine as well…but I just think I havn’t noticed before…the jeweler said it was fine as it is hard to find a “perfectly flawed black diamond” which in essence would be the perfect black diamond
