Bought Engagement Ring With Knot Help!(Si1)

Recommended Posts

I might have gotten myself into a predicament guys. I recently purchased a diamond, Si1 Triple excellent. My girlfriend picked it out she loves it, it is to be her engagement ring. It looks to be eye clean and reflects light very nice. I looked at it from multiple angles as did she and didn't really pick up on the inclusions. After the fact i started reading up on the inclusions listed in the GIA report and started reading up on Knots..... Needless to say, i am now worried about the structural integrity of the ring. :oops: I negotiated them down quite a bit in price, which led them to a no return policy, i can however exchange the diamond if i am not happy with it. My question is, how bad is this Knot in my ring? I will say that the place that i purchased from has a lifetime diamond and ring warranty, should anything happen to the ring. Your advice would be greatly appreciated. Ive linked GIA report for your review https://www.gia.edu/report-check?reportno=2268470343

Any opinions on the cut of the stone?

Yes. The only one that matters:

(BTW: a knot graded SI1 by GIA is fine; by definition, SI inclusions are not detrimental to integrity or durability of the stone in the opinion of the GIA grading panel, otherwise they would have called it I1. The knot has gone through polishing without falling out, experiencing temperatures and pressures that will never be experienced again unless the stone is re-cut).

You are so right! I was having second thoughts because the stone technically doesn’t fall under “ideal specs” even tho it’s an excellent cut. I am relived about the knot.

I’m relieved to something positive! The folks over at pricescope didn’t think very highly of it. I know that shouldn’t matter but I must admit, I was having a panic attack for a few days. I don’t know much about stones. 😕
