    If a 2ct diamond stone has a slight roughness on one edge, possibly where it has chipped a bit, can it be fixed in some way and how badly does it affect the value. The stone is 2ct. probably G or H and I2. Asking price is 3500. It was a girls grandmothers who now needs $. It is in a plat setting with 8 other approx. 3point each diamonds. Please advise ASAP. She need $ promto. I want the ring if it is woth the price. Sirkclower

    If the diamond is a I2 it may not be able to be polished out. If this is a internal imperfection that is breaking the surface and continues well into the diamond, then it doesn't make sense to even try to remove it.You need a expert to view this diamond before you do anything.

    If the seller is in a hurry or pushes you find another diamond.

    "roughness on one edge". Do you mean on the girdle?Yes, it can be fixed by repolishing. It'll cost you the work and loss in the carat weight. If it resulting weight will be below 2 ct, the value of the diamond might drop significantly.I'm afraid nobody can tell you how much it will cost and what will be the weight loss without inspection of the diamond by a cutter.

    Ask a jeweller to turn the stone so the offending marks are under a claw.
