carbon deposits in a diamond

Recommended Posts

i bought a diamond wedding ring set witha e.g.l.certificate the color is "h" and the clarity is s/1. from the top of the diamond you cant see any flaws with the naked eye. but from the sides of the diamond you can clearly see small carbon deposits. that is what the jewelery store said they where,and said it was stilla s/1 grade. ive been reading that a s/1 grade you shouldnt be able to see inclusions with the naked eye. please give me your expert advice, if the diamond is graded right for clarity. thank you serg

Whether or not you can see the inclusions with the naked eye from the side is not what determines the clarity grade. However, EGL is not as stringent as GIA on color and clarity grades.

The last stone I saw that was suppose to be a SI2 EGL graded stone, would probably get an I2 if sent to GIA.
