So I was driving to work this morning and just HAPPEN to have a loupe in my car to look at my ring with when I'm stuck in morning traffic.. :Up_to_something: well I saw something that worries me maybe a chip but I couldn't really tell. I tried to look more when I got to work but I'm just not sure if it's a chip or a refection of the ring.. besides taking it to a jeweler is there any other way that I can do myself?

Do you feel it with your nail? Make sure it's completely clean and dust free, then go sit in the car and check it again.

You say "reflection of the ring" - do you mean it's on the pavilion, by the base of the setting? I've seen those reflections. If that is where it is, I wouldn't worry too much ....

No, I think it may be a inside crack which you can't feel it from the surface

the setting, it looks like a half circle ish shape on one side of the diamond.

Setting reflection! I get the same exact thing on my e-ring, and the first time I saw it, it freaked me out BIGTIME. Then I noticed it was symmetrical and calmed down .... you're fine. Breathe a big sigh of relief ....

Haha, glad it was only a reflection and not a real reason for panic.
