@Mrs Christopher:i don’t see the big deal with inclusions… the way i see it nothing in this world is perfect, especially not love. so i don’t care if the symbol of my love is perfect or not! as long as the diamond is pretty and sparkly that’s all that matters to me!!

I don’t have a diamond for my engagement ring (Moissy here!!) But I do have another diamond ring that has an inclusion that is visible and honestly, I love it! It makes it different and mine ๐Ÿ™‚ Most diamonds have “birthmarks” and i think it makes them all the more special. I don’t have a photo but I think it was an I1 and had a visible inclusion from about a foot away near one of the prongs.

Would I ask for a visibly included stone? No. Would I care if the stone he proposed with had one, or several? Absolutely not! I think the idea of a diamond birthmark is actually kinda cute and unique. Natural stones are gonna have little specks and veins and imperfections, that’s actually why I’m leaning towards diamond rather moissy, I want my stone to be from the ground, not too perfect ๐Ÿ™‚ 

@Mrs Christopher:  Your ring is stunning! I can’t see any inclusions at all from the top. Also loving the solitaire/plain band combo, exactly what I’ve been pining over ๐Ÿ™‚

Almost every stone has inclusions. It all depends on whether they are visible to the naked eye or not. If you cannot see your inclusion but you know it’s there, it’s kinda a psychological barrier.

My husband didnt want to a stone with visible inclusions and got a VS2.  I definitely dont see anything and cant find anything under a loupe.  I wouldnt have minded a lower clarity grade as long as it wasnt too noticible from a foot away or big enough to  effect =sparkle.  A small black dot hard to find but visible would have been just fine with me, espeically if that would have meant a larger stone.  Wink

I have an SI2 diamond that sparkles like crazy. There is a tiny little black dot off to the side of it, but I really don’t give 2 hoots. I know “my” diamond and absolutely love it.

I’ve never been great at spotting inclusions and I don’t really see the big deal unless you can see them.

It also makes a difference what kind of cut it is — We purchased a emerald cut (step cut) and the stone we got is a VVS2. We looked at a VS2 and we could see the inclusion and it made a big difference in how the stone looked…

You can see inclusions mroe fully in step cuts so it was important to me that we got a stone that didn’t have them…

I have an I1 center stone with one visible inclusion, IF you know where to look. Sometimes I see it, sometimes I don’t. I don’t see the big deal with inclusions, unless they’re really obvious–we saw a giant stone (2-3 ct?) at one store that was super included and cloudy–it looked like a piece of white quartz crystal with bits of dirt in it. It didn’t even sparkle!

My stone has no visible inclusions but I rad something a couple of weeks ago that stuck with Me.

Even a “flawless” diamond can have inclusions but they aren’t visible unless 30x magnified.

So your perfect diamond isn’t perfect either.

I prefer completely eye-clean, and mine is an SI1 eye-clean stone ๐Ÿ™‚ On the AGS report there is not a single thing under the table, just a small crystal that is under a prong, and a couple feathers near the edges. Stunning stone, and the clarity grade + fluorescence kept the price down. ๐Ÿ™‚

I prefer eye-clean but don’t care at all if the inclusions aren’t visible.

As long as it’s eye clean I’m fine with it.  Mine’s SI1 so it definitely has its imperfections, but I can’t see them and it is a Leo cut so it sparkles plenty.
