I have been reading on this site for a while because I was planning to propose and I finally did. I went perfectly, but I have a huge problem. . .
I was referred to a local jeweler who came highly recommended. I had been researching diamonds on the internet and basically knew what I wanted to spend and how big I want the stone to be. I know my 4 C''s, so when I went to the jeweler I chose between a number of stones. I ended up choosing a J color Si1 stone. I looked great loose and when compared to I and H colored stones I could not see a difference. So I purchased the stone and had it mounted on a simple gold band. Here is the horrible part: my now fiancée can see yellow in the stone!!!!!!!!!!!!! When I look at it I can see it too! From the side, from the top and it looks really bad in artificial light! What can I do??? The stone is almost 2cts in size and I do not remember seeing the yellow when I was examining it before I purchased. Could the jeweler have switched the stone? I have an appraisal, but I have not received the original certificate from AGS. I have been assured I will get it.
Does anyone have any advice for my course of action with the jeweler and my fiancée? I am devastated, embarrassed and most of all I feel my fiancée is disappointed.
