I don’t think you will notice the inclusions, especially if they have previewed the stone for you and say it’s eye clean. It also scores well with the HCA tool meaning it should have very nice light performance.

If you are very concerned, why don’t you have them send you the unset stone so you can view it yourself?

blonderoast :  Oh yes. There are quite a few inclusions on the topmost facet – crystal, cloud, feather, needle, but I honestly think that they are so small that you will not notice them. It definitely is eye clean.

G colour, excellent cut, polish and symmetry too. I think it’s a good one.

I can’t even pick them out in the 360 degree picture, so I highly doubt you will be able to see them with the naked eye.

I have an SI2 and I can’t see any of the inclusions with the naked eye.

blonderoast :  Even knowing the inclusions are there I couldn’t see them.  Plus the type of inclusions are needle, feather, cloud, etc that aren’t very noticeable to the naked eye anyway.  I have an SI1 because of a cloud inclusion right at the top, and it’s not even that noticeable when looking for it.  As long as the cut is good (which it is) then you should be fine!

With all the sparkle that will be going on with the light performance I really don’t think you will notice them or even be able to see them. This is a very big blow up shot of something that is quite small in real life so those inclusions really are miniscule. I do think having the odd inclusion is not a bad idea. It is like a fingerprint. You will always be sure it is your diamond if it ever goes to anyone for repairs. I agree the specs look good.

Your first diamond you posted looks really nice. I can barely see any inclusions in the super-magnified picture so I doubt you’d see them in person even if you were really looking hard. Looks like it’s a 60/60 style cut which is what mine is. This style of cut can make the diamond face up larger and whiter than other diamonds of the same carat weight. The best thing to do would be to have them send you the diamond to view in person 🙂 

The second diamond you posted only has a stock image.

blonderoast :  I am by no means an expert but can they send you both diamonds and you send back the one you don’t want? Or possibly pull both diamonds and video them side by side for you? 

In your black and white photo of the second diamond I do see the inclusion but the photograph is super-magnified and not in motion like the video, so idk if it’s really comparing apples to apples. 

For the fluoresence- from what I understand this is something you’d need to see the stone in different lighting conditions to tell if it will affect the stone’s visual beauty. Sometimes it can make a stone look “milky” in certain lights.

I think the first stone looks fine. My center stone happened to come in today – it’s VS2 and there were some inclusions I could see on the video of the stone online (we bought from Yadav Diamonds). I cannot see them with my naked eye – I don’t even have a clue where they are when I look at my diamond in person.

FWIW, we bought my stone knowing it’s graded as being strong in fluorescence (that discounted the price) after reading the report that the GIA found most people couldn’t tell the difference between fluorescent and non-fluorescent diamonds. I looked at the stone in strong sunlight today – I couldn’t see anything wrong with it. To my eyes, it still looked clear and white.

I’m no expert just a diamond lover but in all honesty I don’t think you’ll notice anything once it’s on your finger and certainly nobody else will. Whatever the inclusions are it makes your diamond unique.

I don’t think you’ll notice that with the naked eye.
