I just got a large pink spinel today. I absolutely LOVE the cut, colour and sparkle factor. There are some visible inclusions, but they don't bother me. However, there is a small chip on what I think is called the girdle (still learning all the lingo). My jeweller thought this may cause an issue - if I bezel it, further damage may be caused during setting, and if I don't, it's more vulnerable when I wear it. I got a good deal on the stone, but still paid a fair amount of money for it. I already sent an email to the vendor indicating an intention to return it, because I'm worried about the chip. But this makes me sad. Keep it, or send it back?
