I am diamond shopping for the first time in 12 years. Looking at a beautiful 2ct stone that has been drilled and lasered for inclusion modifications, and is therefore not certified. Can anyone give me some feedback on any pitfalls to buying such a diamond?

A laser drilled diamond can certainly be given to a lab for grading and certification. Without a paper, the diamond is likely to be somewhat off graded although the seller may be the most honest of people. A dog without a pedigree is still a dog...

There is no reason to fear a laser drilled diamond. At least you are being told the truth in that regard. It may not be a super fine stone, but you may find it just right for you....That's certainly acceptable.
