Perhaps you can try contacting the Etsy and Ebay sellers themselves to see if they can work with you on something.

No helpful advice, just wanted to say that I also prefer warm stones that are generally seen as “undesirable”! Given the price differences, it’s a pretty convenient preference!

Ultra Diamonds or whatever it’s called. They have awful stuff

Bluenile isn’t going to have what you’re looking for. EBay is probably your best answer. Search for “diamond” then narrow down your selection as much as possible as in: Jewelry > Loose Diamonds and Gemstones > Diamonds > Natural Diamonds. Then sort by lowest price first to see the “ugly” ones and choose your desired carat weight to get rid of all the melee lots.

 

Personally I suggest you search for “diamond, -moissanite” as that comes up a lot on diamond searches and isn’t what you’re looking for.

 

ETA: you can use the comma space minus sign over and over again too, to get rid of rough, black etc ie: “diamond, -moissanite, -black, -rough, -raw” will only show you diamonds that don’t have the keywords moissanite, black, rough or raw in the listing.

Try James Allen, select I1 clarity and sort by price (lowest first). There are some quite heavily included stones there

You can find Pompeii3 on amazon. I second James Allen too, b/c I was looking at heavily included diamonds for fun one day, and plus, you can see a movie and photo of the actual diamond so you can see all it’s inclusions and character.
