My question is, if it is VVS2 and comes with the GIA certification, the diamond will not have any inclusions visual to the naked eye, correct? I wish this certificate had the inclusion map (or do they not give you one for VVS2+?) It does mention pin point. Is that the smallest type of inclusion? I have seen feather, crystal, etc.
I attached the GIA cert. to this post, because i couldn't get the link to work for some reason.
I have read alot about the craftsmanship on their settings which is why I want to purchase the loose diamond only and have it set at a local jeweler. Will jewelers do this cost effectively or is there going to be a huge fee to set a diamond in their setting?
I have also read that Blue Nile's cut grading system is, for lack of a better word, flawed; but if it comes with a GIA certificate claiming excellent cut, does it matter what Blue Nile lists it as?
I bolded all of my questions. Thank you in advance for your expert council, I have been reading these forums for about a week and you all have given awesome advice to many others.
