I absolutely love my diamond and setting that my husband picked out. My diamond does however have an inclusion that is visible to the naked eye. This bothered me the first few months that we were engaged, but when I began receiving compliments from strangers about my ring, I didn’t care anymore. I received 3 compliments from 3 seperate strangers at the mall yesterday. Not one person has even mentioned to me about the inclusion in my diamond.
One more reason that I love my ring is that if I ever take it in to get worked on, I know that it will be my diamond that I am getting back just by looking at the placement of the inclusion.
So for anyone out there who is self conscious about their inclusions in their diamonds, don’t be, I think it makes the diamond that much more special.
Here is a picture of my ring right after he proposed. You actually cannot even see the inclusion in this picture, even though it is towards the center of the diamond.

My ring has an inclusion too! I just tell myself it’s there to remind me that nothing or no one is ever perfect, but to love it or them anyway!

Mine also has an inclusion! I love it!.. I didn’t for the first little bit either, but I got over it, when I remembered that I also have a visible birth mark :).. Mine is also kind of yellow, but most people think I am crazy when I say it is yellow.. I blame it on the halo stones being a bit whiter, and my skin being REALLY pale..

Mine has an inclusion too, and only I ever notice it. Whenever I show it off, no one can tell, especially when I mention it! And I believe that no love is absolutely perfect, just like a person, so neither should your diamond!

I have an heirloom diamond that was bought in the 70’s and worn for several years. When it was given to me with teeny chip in the side, but I don’t care! My heirloom diamond is flawed, but still flawless to me! 🙂

Love this thread! I didn’t notice the visible inclusion my ring has for several days after we got engaged, and when I first saw it I was concerned, but I got over it pretty quickly. No one other than me has ever noticed it, in fact I get many comments that my ring sparkles more than any other people have seen! I think that the cut of my ring somehow hides the inclusion really well.
I also like to think of the inclusion as a birthmark, and doing my research online I discovered another benefit of having a visible inclusion…it gives you something to recognize that you should check for after having an jeweler touch your ring, so if they do something shady like swap out the stone, you know right away!

My 2.53 ct solitaire is definitely flawed. It’s has black carbon spots in the center that are barely noticeable. The only reason I noticed was because the jeweler pointed it out. we got my big diamond for a steal. Even with its flaws it appraises for more than double what my hubby paid. I absolute love it! The pic doesn’t do it justice. It sparkles like crazy:-)
