Hello, I got engaged about a year ago. The ring is gorgeous and exactly what I wanted. However, there are visible inclusions in the diamond, I can very easily see them. I figured the ring probably wasn't very expensive because of this, but I didn't mind. Recently though, I found out how much he paid and I am shocked. He paid a ridiculous amount for this ring in my opinion. Now that I know the amount, I feel like he may have gotten ripped off. I just don't think a diamond with such obvious flaws can possibly be worth so much. Can a 1 carrot diamond, with inclusions seen with the eye, still be worth over $9,000? It's a 1.1 carrot center diamond, with 2 smaller stones on the side, with a platinum band.
