I have a speck of black in my diamond. I just got it 2 weeks ago and just noticed. WTF

what is it? i think it's an imperfection. I'm not trying to sound like a whiny bitch but my fiance hasn't seen it in person and he proposed to me while he was in Iraq. He's sad right now so I don't want to complain about come on it's my wedding ring and i've shown it to a couple other people from work (even older men who don't care about diamonds) and they can see it.

  • That is what an imperfection/inclusion would look like. If you know the clarity of the diamond then you will know whether or not it is normal.

  • It is normal to find inclusions in diamonds and other natural gems. Not a problem, and they make every stone unique.

    That's got to be a BIG OL DIAMOND if people can see the inclusion! Congratulations on your engagement!

  • alyson was tactless but on the money. The price of diamonds is based on the the 4 C's - cut, clarity, color, and carats. If you see an imperfection, then it has a lower grade clarity. Your fiancee may have chosen a lower grade clarity in order to be able to afford the larger size, or the "whiter" color. Not a big deal - there are very few "perfect" diamonds and really how many people are going to be looking THAT closely at your diamond? I would see it as giving my diamond character, you will always know YOUR diamond!

  • Why worry about the diamond when it is the man that you should be looking at his integrity.
