does your ring sparkle all the time?

@KatyYoung:  Well, my center stone is not a diamond, but it doesn’t sparkle under all lights. And my diamond pave doesn’t either. It sparkles best when it’s freshly cleaned and in somewhat dim lighting.

@KatyYoung:  Nope, it doesn’t sparkle all the time; best example would be on overcast days in natural light when it doesn’t sparkle at all.

It sparkles most in dim lighting, in store lighting, and in bright sunlight; in those conditions it’s crazy sparkly.

I have a barely pink moissanite and while it sparkles MOST of the time, sometimes it doesn’t sparkle at all. It sparkles in most light, but if I angle it just right it can kind of “die”. Not sure how else to explain it.

No, when it’s overcast my stones don’t sparkle at all and look dull and grey. And then at other times they are so beautiful I can’t stop looking at them.

Yeah, some lights make it not so sparkly. And the soap at work is not friends with my ring, so it gets kind of dull if I don’t clean it often.

We live in a high rise and use the elevator everyday and I must say, I dont mind waiting the 7 floors up and down because my ring is so sparkly under those lights! And of course when I clean it 🙂

The only time it doesn’t sparkle is when I’m under fluorescent lights at work. In most other lighting, it sparkles. However, for those times when I must see some sparkle, I have a handy LED flashlight app on my cell phone and that does the trick (lol).

@KatyYoung:  Mine sparkles all the time, except in bright lights (flourescent and sunlight), then it is just a very bright white with some sparkle.

Mine sparkles most in bright natural light outdoors, and in low lighting – like the cinema. 

It between it still looks lovely, but doesnt have the same sparkliness!

Mine sparkles all the time and it is a diamond.  It has even been accused of sparkling in the dark! 🙂

Mine sparkles all the time… As long as it’s clean. I once got busy and went 8 months without a cleaning. It was MUCH less glittry then!

@KatyYoung:  mall lights, resturaunts, Target LOL, bright sunlight.  On some overcast days it goes flat, on other overcast days, it actually sparkles if the sun isn’t too blocked by clouds- it’s like a pretty glistening LOL

 

I love the way it sparkles in my kitchen under the lights!!

It sparkles more in some light, but when clean it pretty much has some sparkle all the time.  If I got a while without cleaning I can really tell though, it gets pretty dull.

I have a cushion cut diamond and to be honest, it doesnt sparkle much in jewelry store settings.. where mine looks best is in natural sunlight or in low light situations.. gues that’s why they call the cushin cut diamond the candle light diamond.  There is an elevator in my buildnig at work where my ring looks totally amazing.
