Wedding Etiquette Forum


Yesterday I made a post asking if anyone had any similar experiences with re-setting a diamond to hide an inclusion. After finding out that it shouldn't be a problem, I'm wondering now if I should actually go and get it re-set. The inclusion bothers me, but I'm wondering if this is one of those things that I would be better off leaving well enough alone.I would be happier if the inclusion was hidden, but I'm worried that if I re-set the diamond the prongs will become weaker and the diamond will fall out. I have a warranty and insurance through the jewelry store, so I wouldn't have a problem replacing the diamond if it does fall out, but like I said, I'm wondering if I should even bother with all this in the first place.What would you guys do?

    I'd leave it.  You're the only one looking close enough to see the inclusion.  even with it hidden, you still know it's there so it really doesn't change things.

    Ditto Moose.  I'm sure no one else can see the inclusion.

    No one has mentioned anything to me about it either. I'm the only one who has noticed it, but it still bothers me. I turned my ring around though so the inclusion isn't facing me. I don't know why it bothers me so much, you can't see it from the top of the diamond because it's under the girdle. Maybe I'll just leave it alone. I do have to go back to the jewelry store soon anyway though for my semi-annual cleaning/inspection. Maybe I'll just ask the jeweler to see if he/she thinks it's worth it.

    honestly, I don't mean this rudely...but it makes you sound unappreciative of the gesture (the ring). I don't love the inclusion in mine...but I can tell you one thing, I love the ring. I would leave it be for now. You can always upgrade your diamond in a few years (this is our plan).

    I know, that's why I talked to my FI about it first. Actually it was my original plan to upgrade the diamond in a couple of years too. FI actually liked this idea, and suggested I turn the original diamond into a necklace or something.
