Are you sure the little black specks you are describing are not crystals due to the clarity of the diamond?

@cejo13:  I had a moment of this thought too, after I got my ring back after sizing! I noticed a small scratch that I hadn’t seen before, and for a bit I convinced myself that the store must have done something while they had it!! But, I don’t think you can damage a diamond very easily. I brought it up to my fiance, and he said that it had been there when he bought it – he went for a slightly flawed diamond in favor of a good cut and carat.  I just hadn’t noticed it in the few short days I had it before taking it in for sizing! So I wonder if these are slight inclusions in the diamond that were always there. No problem though, most people can’t see these with the naked eye. We actually went back and looked at some less flawed ones, but I like mine better, so he did good!

Maybe ask your fiance if he noticed those things before? He should have had an opportunity to look at the diamond under the scope and they should have pointed them out for him. Just make sure to reassure him that you’re not bothered by them! Don’t want him to feel like it’s not good enough for ya 😉

I am confused.  Where is the scratch, on the metal or on the stone?  The black specks sound like carbon spots in your diamond.  If they don’t come off in the ultrasonic or steamer, they were probably just always there and you never noticed.  If you have spots on your metal, it c ould be porosity in the metal, which means it wan’t made well.  Just a scratch in the metal can be buffed out.

the diamond shouldnt scratch or chip, at least not easily.  Take it to a jeweller & ask them.
