Does a well-cut diamond ever have this look?

I got engaged about a year and a half ago, and we recently got married. I am having some trouble shaking some concerns about my diamond. When I first got the ring, I didn’t notice any problems with it - it took me MONTHS of watching its performance in different lights before realizing something might not be quite right. I am concerned my diamond has a nailhead effect. Obviously, this is not something I understood existed when I selected it. I love my engagement ring and I always will - I don’t know if I could even bear to exchange it for a new one - but I want to get some opinions on whether I was taken advantage of.

Does a well-cut diamond ever appear like this in certain lights? The pic with the purpley nails I took in the car right after getting it steamed at the jewelry store, and I think the diamond looks great there 55795BC6-8850-4C11-9121-BF03C402E25B.jpeg so you can see how different it looks. 04111DCE-B30B-454E-A219-28C0A2C442C2.jpeg 0FE2F19D-7527-4FE2-9D8F-CD6D61B722D8.jpeg 8028670D-ABF2-400B-9A5D-4D370A837DF5.jpeg

So it appears you own a lab grown diamond and need your post moved to the lab grown area. To me, the diamond looks beautiful. Especially the first photo.

No problem with your stone. You are just obstructing it. Make sure it's clean, but proportions wise it looks very good, i.e. these are not a set of proportions that are prone to obstruction.
