This might be a silly question, but I have seen a lot of women say that thier diamond goes dead outside in direct sunlight. I was just standing outside right in the sun, and my diamond was going crazy.
I do have a very firey diamond I must say- it looks clear and you can see the hearts and arrows cut on a cloudy day, in the kitchen, especially when I just have the above the sink lights on, it’s very firey.
So I’m just wondering- does your diamond sparkle in the sunlight?

Yep. I keep trying to get a good photo of it, but no dice.

Mine does! It’s my favorite time to take a look at my ring. Unfortunately clouds are right in front of the sun or I would post a picture.

mine is a cushioh cut, so it doesnt have as much brilliance as a round, but it has a lot of fire and in the sunlight you see all of the fire…. interestingly enough you can also see it in low light situations.. guess tha’ts why they call cushion cuts the candle light diamond….

@MrsEME: Mine sparkles best in store lighting and low lighting, and direct sunlight.
Only time it doesn’t sparkle at all is outside on a cloudy day; then it just looks clear/white.

@creeative1: mine is a round- but mine is definitely more fiery in the sun vs brilliant, and low lighting = major fire for me, too. I did read (for rounds) that the deeper the diamond (which is not always preferred)- the more firey. Which is also why OECs are apparently more firey. My diamond is 2% deeper than what some consider to be ideal depth. So I’m guessing this is where my fire comes from….not sure though!!

mine is a flower cluster in a halo and it really goes crazy in sunlight!
the other day i was in a sunny room and I could see all these little reflective circles on the piece of paper on my desk…took me a few seconds to work out that it was from my ring!
