I have seen very different views with all EC’s [diamonds, simulants etc]  And yes you’re right, for every degree you turn them, a new shade comes out.  I understand the fire aspect of the cut, but have no clue as to why the color and brilliance change so much.

I see what you mean. Is the gray ugly in any way? (Sorry, asking bc I am considering a EC)

Is this bothering you?

I’m not an EC owner, just an EC admirer, so take this with a grain of salt. I think it may have to do with the cut – well cut diamonds often go dark in direct sunlight, and I assume that holds true with ECs as well.

Also, your ring is beautiful!

My EC does this as well in very bright sunlight. It’s grey but still very sparkly. I don’t think it’s a clarity or color issue. My diamond is an F, flawless.

Mine does this too, but it will also throw a lot of fire.  I’ve seen other cuts Round Brilliant do this too.
