I tried to look at the inclusions through the magnifying glass but I couldn’t see anything and felt really dumb and blind after lol. I feel like I just will leave it up to him.. like I’m driving MYSELF crazy when he should be the one going crazy! Thanks for your help!
If color is super important to you like it was/is for me, you may find yourself slightly disappointed especially if you are able to tell the difference yourself. If you can’t tell, who cares! 🙂 I will say that I was slightly disappointed with my SI1 stone at first especially since the jeweler had to point out EVERY SINGLE inclusion and “defect” to me under the microscope before sending it off to be set (for liability reasons). That and most of my close friends had nothing below a VS2. But now i could care less and I LOVE everything about my ring. I can’t stop taking peeks at it and at the end of the day, these are just codes and letters. I feel silly for ever feeling that disappointment because it’s so bright and sparkly and I constantly get compliments on it. If you love the way it looks and love that your Fiance invested time and money to find THE ring/stone then that’s all that matters! Good luck!
Update! Hi guys we went and looked aGAIN yesterdy.. My SO is a little crazy with shopping… i saw different diamonds ranging from F-i… I really only noticed the I looked a hint if yellow.. But the other colors honestly all looked the same to me unless i looked soooo closely and compared! All of the cuts were very good- ideal and sparkled so so much! Some SI1 my SO saw the inclusion where I couldn’t! I narrowed it down between 3 and he will make the final decision… and keepa trying to say the jeweler sold them to try and fool me lol because now i will be waiting and waiting and waiting! Here is a pic of basically what we looked at…. the one on the right i ruled out because its EGL certified and Ik it might look the same.. but js just rather bave GIA certification….. Also thank you all sooo much for your help and i loveee loveee loveee all of your rings you posted!
