Engagement Diamond Ring

Honesty is the best policy, as long as your fiance know this and she is alright with this then goes ahead. I find it really strange that a clarity enhanced diamond could be graded a VS 2 that is not possible! The diamond should still have a cert! That's my first concern. Diamonds have grading certificates for a reason, YOUR PROTECTION! Accuracy is important to the beauty and value of your gemstone. Usually to bother enhancing a stone the clarity or inclusions have to be pretty visible. Thus they drill holes to the flaws and bleach out the dark inclusions and usually fill the holes or large inclusions that break the surface up with a compatible material.

The only problem is that this makes the diamond unstable you can't work on the ring. It can't be cleaned in a real ultrasonic or steamed and it needs to be. Diamond is magnetic to oil and it needs to be heated to release the oil from the stone. There is no way to care for your diamond like a natural diamond.

Find a nice GIA cert diamond SI 2 in clarity and F- G in color with a good make, or an EGL SI1 EF as they are much more leaning in there grading. Please realize that a clarity enhanced stone is filled with a substance that fills in any fractures in the diamond, this may help to disguise any fractures or feathers in the stone, but it will also diminish the fire and brilliance of the stone and you still will have an imperfect diamond. However if price and size at a "price"are primary by all means purchase a clarity enhanced stone. But please remember an "edsel" is an "edsel" forever. You will be better off long term, that way you can upgrade. The certificate acts like a pink slip to your car it is very important.

Would you buy a car without a pink slip? You can also do a diamond halo around the center diamond to make it look bigger!!! 1 carat can look three carats. It is very fashionable. The process used to fill surface breaking cracks in diamonds is to "impregnate" them with a lead rich glass. The original clarity of these treated diamonds was I2-I3. I would be skeptical of any gemological testing lab that would grade a Clarity enhanced diamond VS2.

That being said, I have seen some incredible looking diamonds that OVED has treated. I have usually sold them for earrings or pendants because I know they will suffer minimal wear under those conditions, but I recall an engagement ring or two that I've mounted with clarity enhanced diamond. I think they fulfill a need in the marketplace and offer customers another option. I would definitely go with one of the companies, like Ovid, that offer a lifetime warranty.

just in case. I just hope that you are very honest with your fiance about the ring that you would like to get. You don't need to show her what the ring looks like, make it so that she can just make out in her mind what she thinks that ring might look like or you can always take a picture of a ring that kind of looks like that one you want and tell her that.

If she is fine with it then I hope that you make a good choice.
