She was a gemologist and putting things in layman’s terms for me. She said indented natural is a fancy word for a small chip. She showed me where those are (I didn’t even see them). Then she said the thing I actually saw is definitely a chip that was caused by blunt force. We have my old diamond insured but haven’t updated the insurance with the appraisal our jeweler gave us from the new diamond. But the gemologist said that the appraisal is inaccurate at $8,500. So I have no idea what to do there.
Seems odd the appraiser is calling indented naturals ‘chips’. I didn’t think these were one in the same.
Do you have the ring insured? If not, I would suggest you either get it insured (which you’ll need an appraisal for) or don’t wear it until you do have it insured. That is the only way to protect against further loss/damage.
