Diamonds: 1 carat diamond
Alloy: 18ct palladium white gold
Setting: claw

Hard to forget this ring. The customer had purchased her engagement ring from a jewellery chain and one day noticed a large black carbon inclusion in the diamond.

There is nothing wrong with people buying diamonds of the lower grades, just so long as they know what they are buying. There are very few perfect diamonds and I always point out flaws to my customers so that they can make an informed decision on  the diamond grade that suits them.

She was not happy and came to me for my opinion as she felt she would not have purchased the ring had she known it was flawed in such a way. My only advice was to take it back, ask them to fix it or refund.

She did and then I made this ring for her.
