Can you crack a diamond

Topic: Ring Setting


Can you crack a diamond when setting it in a setting. I got a 1.1/6 of a carat marquee and my husband had a jewler put it into a setting I now notice that when you hold it up into the light you can see what appears to me as a crack. it goes from on end to the other. Some Jewler said that it was just an illusion in the diamond but i think either a crack close to the surface of a scrach. But the surface seems to be smooth. Can you help me?


Hi Cheree,

It is possible to crack a diamond when setting it. Tell me more about your diamond. Clarity? Natural?
