Diamonds are an incredibly hard gem. Still, they are a very brittle stone and contain natural flaws regardless of their quality. It is a pure myth that a diamond cannot be broken or damaged. Diamonds are actually damaged every day.
The most common causes of a damaged diamond is either through the setting process or every day wear and tear. Diamonds damaged during the setting process are not necesarily the fault of the setter or an indication of their skill. Again, all stones are brittle and can contain flaws that are simple not capable of handling the pressures applied during the setting process. Whether the jeweler or setter of your diamond confesses to the fact your stone has been damaged and contracts a diamond cutter to repair it is another story. Another common cause of diamond damage is every day wear and tear that nicks, chips, and cracks diamonds.
