Diamond Query: Cancel the Order and Go for a Smaller Princess Diamond with Better Clarity and Color Because of Two Big Feathers in the Corner?

| Anonymous Reader


Hi, I bought yesterday a diamond online in the James Allen web page. Today I was looking the diamond, and observed two big feathers in the corner that I had not notice.

What is your opinion for this type of inclusion in this diamond, and do you think I should cancel the order and go for a smaller diamond with better clarity and color. The link of the diamond is https://www.jamesallen.com/loose-diamonds/princess-cut/1.08-carat-g-color-si1-clarity-sku-6115699.

Thank you for your inquiry. I am happy to help!

Princess cut diamonds are more prone to chipping due to the sharp corners and straight edges. This diamond does have a thicker girdle, which will help protect the diamond. Also, the size of the feathers are small.

I would not be concerned. Also, what type of ring setting will this diamond be set into?

Hello Sebastian,

Thank you for your prompt response. The setting for this diamond will be a platinum solitaire with pave diamonds in the center.

Hi, when you say solitaire, do you mean a 4 or 6 prong ring with pave diamonds down the side of the ring shank?

Yes, a 4 prong ring.

Ah, okay. The reason I was asking, depending on how a diamond is set plays a role in how protected the diamond is. A prong setting makes the diamond more exposed/vulnerable, but I feel due to the girdle thickness of this princess cut diamond you should be fine.
