I bring up inclusions with this nice bright flashy oval because it is easily seen, by eye, with the stone face up. It also effect the way I cut this stone. I work very hard to minimize inclusions under the table and in this case that lead to a smaller than average table. I start all my ovals with standard meet point angles, but I have never finished an oval without adjustments. The feather area is now positioned under the corner of the oval where the prongs would be placed if the stone was ever set. I am not saying that my friend the goldsmith and gem setter will be happy with that, but I think I did well with this included stone that has great color, tone and saturation. It has a nice weight of 4.01 carats.
