Should Moissanite have visible inclusions?

I do have one moissy stone that does have an inclusion, it’s actually like a straight line, but luckily I can only see it under magnification.

First I would suggest though, just to be sure, that you get a small toothbrush, or tiny bristled brush and scrub your moissy really well, using Windex or dawn dishwashing liquid and water.  It may be jewelers rouge, or something that got stuck.  I have purchased many moissy stones, and almost every one of them had an oily film on them and once I cleaned them, WOW what a difference.

Do you own a loupe?  I suggest you get one so you can always check your stones, and prongs too thru time.  If you own a loupe and know for sure that the black spots are embedded in the stone, then yes, return it.  I wouldn’t accept that from a seller unless the stone was just super inexpensive (like, 20 bucks).

Do you only see them at that awkward angle? They don’t look like inclusions, but a reflection or something.

Bee, to be clear, are you referring to the tiny little black dot, at about 9 o’clock on the stone, in the first pic?

hufflepuffkatie :  It would bother me, like, I wouldn’t be able to unsee it.  Dark spots are a no for me.  I hope you are within your return period.  Do see it under a loupe.

Can you go into a jewerly store and ask if they can clean your ring and then, loupe there?  Just another option………

By the way, I use a little Wilton icing tip cleaning brush.  The bristles are super thin and get under the stone so well.  For scale, the full tip here (the top one) is one inch long.  I love this thing, it does such a good job.
