    I have a gorgeous D color 2 carat pear. There’s an inclusion and you can see it if you look carefully.

    I only saw it once it was set. I didn’t see it before when we were stone shopping and it was sitting flat on my hand.

    But I love my ring! I love the inclusion. It reminds me of me! (Shiny sparkly but with a couple of flaws) And like someone said, it’s also a great way to identify your diamond.

    bellaamore523:  Yeah, I’m aware that that’s a possibility. I’m usually very careful though, and I plan to speak with the jeweler making my wedding band to see if they think it’s a huge issue or if they recommend simply resetting the stone so that its underneath a prong or something. Unfortunately, we aren’t able to go back to the person/place he originally bought it from, and buying another stone is money we can’t afford to pay right now, so it’s really not an option to change anything at all. I appreciate the concern though (:

    I honestly like my inclusions.  Makes my ring unique and not exactly the same as someone else’s 🙂

    Honestly your ring isn’t that hard to find I’ve seen thousands or rings like yours on ebay and etsy and tradesy, etc for your price range. Maybe you cam try to sell online and use the money to do some research on the 4C’sto find your dream ring. I’ve literally spent a whole year looking for an engagement ring and have barley found tr perfect one but I have to save up a little more.

    soontobemissescavey:  Can the store order another ring that is the same one so you can compare and choose the one that suites you more? IF YOU got your ring from Kays or jared They send in 2 other rings just for you to look at so you can choose the one you like the most. Same ring though so you dont have to feel bad about having a completely new ring?? Zales does this as well I have a friend who works for them.

    He’s probably right that no one else is going to notice.  As long as he got what he paid for, which is sounds like he did since you said it was so inexpensive, I’d say try to deal with it… especially since it’s too late to do anything about it anyways.

    I literally had to pick my laptop up and hold it close to my face to see it. I would keep the ring. It’s a lovely token of your engagement! You can always upgrade later on.

    My Fiance claimed that my ring is of the highest clarity, but it has an inclusion near the top that I found. I like to think of the ring as being resprensentative of our relationship–imperfect, but beautiful despite its flaws. Only I will ever notice the inclusion, and it reminds me that we are imperfect people and that things won’t always be easy, but that we are making a choice to be together and love each other every day. Therefore, I make the choice to love my ring, not because it’s perfect, but because it’s US. This is probably me putting too much thought/meaning into a ring, but I digress 🙂

    My ring has a noticeable inclusion in it too… I honestly could care less. No one else besides my husband and I know its there and we laugh about it that when I bring it to the jeweler to get cleaned or anything we always check for the little spot when we get it back to make sure they didn’t switch out the diamond. Also sorry for the crappy office lighting.

    soontobemissescavey:  It doesnt hurt to ask it might make you feel better in the end. I would stop in and see the jeweler with your fiance you should have a grace period regardless even after the 30 days is up they should honor it. Just explain your concern a lot of diamonds can be the same with the 4 CS and look different. Just dont wait any longer if you do decide to try to do something! I had a ring with a really bad carbon spot and I it just really bothered me and fiance understood. As for BEES saying oh this is my diamond cause of this spot okay but did you know they can laser a barcode on the inside of your diamond to ensure its your diamond as well just in case its stolen? i see a bigger benefit in that then anything else.

    I think that if it bothers you and it’s all you see when you look at the ring then you should look into getting the stone replaced. But if you can see past it to the sparkle then why trade it in? Personally, after cut, clarity was extremely important to me. My vision is better than 20/20 so I asked for VVS1 to ensure I’d be happy with the stone.
