This maybe a stupid question to even ask but here goes. So I noticed when the sun hits my ring it will show light fragments on the roof of my car. I was talking to a few girls at work about it and they stated their rings didn’t really do this and that mine must not have been cut right because it’s not a certified diamond. Is that true? I never thought anything of it or that it was cut wrong. I thought it was funny because whenever I see those light spots like that I think of my cat because he always tries to play with them.

oxstardust421xo: I think it means your ring is real and theirs aren’t ha! My ring does that too. Mine is also an antique, so I don’t know if that has to do with it at all. Honestly, I wouldn’t worry about it. A diamond is a diamond. What’s it to them?

I’ve never heard this claim before. My ring is a diamond, and as far as I know, cut properly, and it reflects light in my car similar to what you’re describing (and it isn`t even that big…)

Yep, that’s awesome! Little sparkles all over. Don’t listen to haters!

That’s a good thing when you get a light show!

Mine shows light spots like that as well and as far as I know it’s a good cut. I actually will sit and wiggle my fingers around when I notice my ring putting on a light show 🙂

Don’t pay them any mind. My diamond (E, VS1, excellent, RB) can put on quite the rainbow light show in the car. It distracts me. haha

Agree with what PPs said. A sparkly light show is a beautiful and lovely (and good!) thing. My ring sparkles like crazy, and also reflects light in the car — on the roof and on the sides, especially when I’m driving. I think it’s a sign that you have a great stone!

Aren’t well-cut diamonds supposed to give disco lightshows?
It sounds like you work with some Hatrerade-sipping jelly bellies. Just ignore them.

oxstardust421xo: if you’re that worried, take it to a jeweler you trust and have him test it in front of you. There are lots of older diamonds (OEC, OMC, etc.) that aren’t certified, though you can always send them in for certification. It doesn’t mean that they aren’t cut right.
Certification doesn’t mean it’s cut right or not cut right. It only states what the cut is, relative to a standard as interpreted by the person performing the certification.
Sorry to get pedantic, but misinformation that causes anxiety drives me nuts. Your question isn’t dumb at all. Your coworkers’ POV is unfortunately mistaken.
