Would you take it back?

I got this ring today. It's 1.5 carats total weight with a .5 carat center stone. It was a bit under $4000 with some insurance and whatever. The center stone has this black spot that I can see and it's bothering me. Should I take it back? I just don't know if the ring with an obvious flaw isworth what I paid for it .

 I'd take it back, for that is just too large.

If it's bothering you, take it back.

What did the certification say about the clarity?

You're not going to get a perfect .5 ct stone for $4k, sorry.

I'd take it to another jeweler and have it appraised. Maybe it's worth that, maybe it isn't.

Ultimately it's up to you. Do you want a diamond with an obvious flaw? Do you care that much? If you love the ring and the price, will a detail change your mind?
