My diamond has a visible inclusion, also right near the middle at the top. I’m the only one who has ever noticed, and I will always be able to recognize it as my stone. I love everything about my ring, including the inclusions in my diamond πŸ™‚

ladycirtolthiel:  <- yes!  I have a couple inclusions, but really, I’m the only one that will ever notice them.  You’ll always know your stone is your stone, and just think of it as giving the stone some personality.

Your ring is really pretty! My stone has a cloud type of inclusion but it’s not noticeable unless I look at it from the side.  I actually think it gives my stone some character and I always know it’s mine when I get it back from getting worked on.  I’m sure nobody else notices these inclusions like we do since we stare at it all day everyday.

we are so picky over our own things. I know it’s how you feel about it that’s important, but unless someone’s really into diamonds and is studying your ring, it’s would be not on anyone’s radar.

My w-band (which is priceless because it’s an heirloom) has five 10pt i1 stones. They sparkle like a dream. Nobody, and I mean, no.bod.y, gets their face that close to my ring to see the inclusions.

Enjoy your marital bling. Wear it in good health!

I have an EC with one inclusion right in the center.  I have sometimes have to point it out for people to see, I can see it no prob but I like it because I know it’s my stone every time I see it πŸ™‚

My mom’s center diamond in her ring has a huge inclusion right down the middle. She’s usually really picky about her jewelry and all her other diamonds are VVS, so I have no clue what made her choose that ring but hey, if it works for her. She loves it and has worn it proudly for decades. Like you said, just make friends with it!

Mine does. It’s white so it’s almost impossible to see unless the light is right. Fiance picked it anyway because it’s an E in color and he loved how sparkly and white it was, since princess cuts are a less innately sparkley cut. I love it. I’ll always know it’s my stone, and no one but us will really ever notice. It makes it unique and different.

littlewhale:  Personally, I like inclusions. What’s the point of having a natural stone if there is nothing about it that makes it unique? If I want a flawless stone, I’ll just save some bucks and go lab created. In fact, that’s what I do with sapphires because I like them as flawless as possible. With diamonds and emeralds, I prefer the inclusions that come with the real thing. I mean, people pay thousands of dollars for flawless diamonds when moissanite gives you the exact same look for a fraction of the cost. My ring is an I1. It doesn’t have anything visible to the naked eye, but it’s also very small. I think I may see a feather and if I turn it the right way. I wouldn’t trade it for anything!

Bridey77:  this!  Every one of my rings has inclusions, some of them are much more visible than others,  but no one else ever really sees them but me.  Seriously, nobody gets close enough for long enough to actually see anything but sparkly diamonds.  The “best” clarity one I have is a vs2, and I cam still see an inclusion from the side. My one carat solitaire has a few black spots right on the table, but no one can see them except for me,  and only in some light. I think,  as others have said, that it gives my diamond character, and I’ll always know it’s my stone. Unless they really affect the integrity or sparkle of the diamond,  they don’t bother me πŸ™‚ going to include a picture for the OP, that I think shows my diamond’s inclusions pretty well.  

And just for referencemost people are surprised when I tell them the center stone of this one is an i2.

I think your ring is quite beautiful, make friends with it, it’s lovely!

I do and have come to love it! It makes my diamond unique and mine πŸ™‚ after a while you probably won’t notice it.

littlewhale:  my 1.51 carat G si1 diamond has eye visible feathers and some specs you can only see under magnification and up close pics. It drove me absolutely nuts, so now it sits in our safe. My stone has a cut grade of very good so if it were excellent/ideal cut the inclusions wouldn’t be as noticeable. Oh well, live and learn!

In this pic you can see a large feather on the top of the table

Extremely noticeable in this pic next to the crystal clear oec moissanite

how can you tell where inclusions are on your ring? I’m not seeing any in any of the pictures posted
