Diamond Query: Durability and Price of a 0.80-Carat VVS2 Diamond with Feather Inclusion

| Anonymous Reader

Hi Sebastian, I was searching online to learn more about diamond inclusions specifically about feather, when I saw your page and it is defiantly informative and helpful.

I would like to get your opinion on a diamond that I am about to buy for my wedding. This diamond is:

Weight: 0.80 carat
Color: E
Clarity: VVS2
Polish: Excellent
Symmetry: Good
Fluorescence: None
Clarity Characteristic: Feather
Girdle: Slightly  thick to thick
Table: 73%
Depth: 71%
Culet: None
Measurement: 5.06*5.05*3.59 mm

I am not a professional but when I looked at the diamond with a loupe, it looked so clear. I am most concerned about the durability because of feather inclusion. Is there a way you can help me to be sure before buying the diamond? Many thanks in advance!

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

Is the diamond GIA graded diamond? If the diamond is a VVS2 clarity, you do not need to worry about the feather inclusion. It will not pose a durability issue.

And if the diamond looks pretty and sparkly to you and the price is fair, I would say you can buy the diamond with confidence.

Hi Sebastian, I can't help myself not to ask you, if in your opinion $3,700 is fair price for this 4Cs diamond? Thanks!
