Just looking for some advice. I purchased a 1.5ct G, SI1, VG Cut Princess diamond (GIA) and there are 2 noticeable small black dots, close to the crown, when looking closely at the sides of the diamond. From the top, no inclusions can be seen.

Is it fairly common to see visible inclusions from the side of a 1.5ct SI1 princess? Can these black dots be reflections of something other than inclusions?

Thanks for your help!

Hi! Welcome!
Diamond clarity grading is done from the top down, so for clarity grading, things seen from the side ''don''t exist''. Do the inclusions bother you?

It is very common to see inclusions from the side of an SI1 stone and it is even quite possible to see inclusions from the top too! If it bothers you, then either go up in clarity or find another SI1 stone whose inclusions are not as visible.
