The feather is a very common inclusion. It can be perfectly safe - or - it may pose a problem.

 

The size and position must be considered: The feather in A is tiny, completely enclosed and not in a vulnerable area. No problem. Feathers in B are larger and occur near the girdle. They require physical examination by an expert to determine if they are surface-reaching or open and what risk they pose.

 

Since a reputable expert has sold #2 to Dragonfire I anticipate it was examined and there is no problem.

Diamondlover,

 

Feathers are extremely common and they are not all a breakage risk. In fact, most aren’t. By definition an inclusion that materially affects the durability of the stone renders it, at best, I-1 in clarity. Durability is definitely a valid thing to be concerned about in shopping for diamonds, especially with princess cuts, but you’re basically expressing a concern that the stone may be misgraded by the lab and that the lab report is insufficient information to make a sensible decision. On this we agree, but missing a serious durability problem is not usually the issue, at least not with stones graded by the major labs (AGS & GIA). Presence of a feather should not, by itself, be a deal killer.

since feather may have chances to pose a problem so it's better to avoid. save the trouble. ;)

 

I apologize DL. I presumed you weren't aware that feathers can be safe but it sounds like you already know. It's your right to take that position. Just as some people insist on only D color or VVS clarity; you have to choose what makes you comfortable.

Ok... Just remember though, some feathers are simply a crystal that expanded slightly during millions of years of formation, deep inside the diamond. You don't want to hurt their feelings do you? ;)
