lavenderstone:  I think that some diamonds with lots of inclusions can be really pretty – but it’s a different pretty than a VVS1 Diamond. 

Some of the inclusions can be spectacular 😀

I love that orangey/rosey one on the bottom!

But these all look alot like other kinds of gemstones to me. For example, the top one looks alot like moonstone/mother of pearl and the bottom one looks like a pale jade to me. If I saw one of those rings on someone’s finger, I would never think it was a diamond. I don’t mean this in a negative way at all, just an observation.

Oh wow those are so pretty! I’m a huge fan of rough diamonds, but i may need to add milky ones to my list!

I do like sparkle and defined facets for “fine” jewelry, but the rings you posts are lovely and different. Almost reminds me of quarts though. I like the look of the twig-style rough diamond rings as well.

Heavily included diamonds are missing the elements that make a diamond special to me (sparkle/light dispersion, even their strength sometimes), but I can still understand the appeal. They do remind me of quartz, and each of them is really unique.

All of those are very pretty.. and I agree with PP who said they look like other types of gemstones.

I wouldnt want one as an engagement ring, but for a RHR I would totally rock it!

I think the stigma against inclusions is kind of BS. My diamond is rated as I1. Not opaque, and the color is F, ideal cut, so it still has that typical “diamond” look, but it is so beautiful for having such a low clarity rating. If I ever get another diamond (probably won’t because I don’t care), I won’t even look at all these silly “ratings.” They mean nothing to me. I’d rather go by what I see with my own eyes.

And I think those opaques are gorgeous!
