I <thought> that fracture filling or drill and fill in diamonds resulted in blue/purple streaks? Not red/orange.

I did see once a diamond that had a garnet (ruby?) crystal inside it. That crystal was eye visible so I didn’t buy it but scientifically I thought it was cool.
I mean....I guess I could be wrong but I did find whisps that were described as pink online but they looked reddish orange to me that were an example for FF and looked identical to what I saw in the diamond.

I did contact the seller about it just describing my findings and they seemed shocked. They offered a full refund or a partial refund and since I do like the look of the diamond I decided a small partial refund felt right.

Id still like to move forward with its ring setting and just make sure to baby it lots!

Here are some photos online of the red whisps im talking about.

Mine looked the same but way way smaller and much harder to detect!

If the stone is enhanced these are my thoughts. I would make sure either way though before asking for anything from the seller.

The seller was inexperienced and was selling her jewelry with only two other pieces listed.
She seemed truly surprised that it was CE but who knows. :think:
Inexperience from a seller is not a good excuse. IMO one makes sure what one is selling is authentic and true to description. I know not everyone operates on that business model but ignorance is not a valid excuse. IMO.

If you are in love with the stone @Garnetgirl and want to keep it (and I completely get why you would want to) I would explain to the seller you expect to get a percentage off the cost due to the inaccuracy of her description and the fact you thought you were getting a natural diamond ie not an enhanced one. JMO FWIW.

Thank you Missy! & I agree! Thank you for being such an advocate and someone to bounce ideas off of. It truly helped me to understand how I was feeling and what I ultimately wanted to do with this diamond that I loved.

& Thank you to everyone that chimed in! This was probably my oddest thread in that it took such a dramatic turn with the probable FF news!

To wrap up this thread in a strange turn of events;

-I contacted the seller explaining the situation, & she came up with the idea of a partial refund.

-With the partial refund, (excluding the price of the 6.6g platinum setting and the two 3mm princess diamonds) the diamond itself only cost me $300. So I'm very happy with this!

-The ring was sent off to DanielM and I sent him my inspiration pic thats in this thread! Hes aware of the nature of the stone and is creating it as we speak!

-I also decided to use the two 3mm princess cut diamonds as side stones for a different three stone ring made with this sweet powder bluish lilac sapphire I just purchased! It has a window but I feel like it adds to its icy quality. Like a pool of water!

A lil' tease on how the 3-stone is going with my sapphire and the natural diamonds taken from the ring! It's going to be set in a simple but beautiful low profile trellis ring in 14k yellow gold. A little rich butter to compliment the stones icyness!

No cad yet on the diamond ring.
Im excited as it will be a good everyday diamond ring & Ill truly enjoy it! Ill just make sure to document that its FF and let my children know in case of inheritance for resell purposes.

I kept the diamond despite its enhancement because it just grew on me immediately, Im not sure how to explain it but I just love the cut and color and size. $300 aint bad for it! She reminds me of a woman who decided while she's young to get botox/fillers to keep from having any lines on her face. Haha My "botox" diamond!
