A HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT After reading the reviews, I was really expecting a wonderful ring. But, I must have received the lemon out of the bunch. This diamond was returned. When I first looked at the ring, I thought there was some sort of greasy/oily grayish substance on the stone. But, after closer inspection, itís just an extremely poor quality black diamond. All the imperfections in this stone are quite obvious. Pros: The silver setting is very pretty. The diamond is secured in the setting Cons: There are numerous occlusions throughout the stone which resemble lighter colored speckles. There is an extremely large fault line (end to end) almost dead center right thru the middle of the stone -along with other smaller veins throughout the stone. Plus, the entire top surface of the diamond appears to be a different color (sort of grayish) because of all the occlusions/imperfections. The center fault line in this stone is so significant, I really fear it will soon crack along this line. Very pretty setting Ö.. very poor diamond!
