When my husband and I went to upgrade my stone I made a very quick selection based on the overall "look" of the diamond. I was mesmerized at the sparkle and clarity and thought it was safe to purchase because the diamond was certified (my engagement ring had a large inclusion and wasn''t certified). After using the Holloway Cut Advisor however, I realized that my new stone is cut too deep. I know my husband is fairly frustrated because I had been lurking around this site for weeks before the purchase, hoping to be better informed the next time around but am still in the same boat. I am so upset with myself and don''t know what to do! A local jeweler made me feel worse when he said that I could upgrade my diamond for life with the company I bought from, but would be getting the same thing each time..... A poorly cut stone. I can''t return the diamond, I can only exchange and/or upgrade. But will I really be upgrading or will I be mislead again? Should I just keep the stone? Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.
