Sorry, I don’t actually have a blue diamond, but my mom has blue diamond earrings. They arnen’t quite as sparkly as a clear(?) diamond, but they’re still pretty sparkly. I think they’re just missing some of the fire that clear diamonds have, but they’re still reflecting light!

I love blue diamonds.  I have earring and a ring that FI got me.  He got the earrings at Hannoush and the ring at Zales.  You really need to look at the stones though because they can vary in color greatly. I think that they still sparkle but nothing will ever sparkle like a good diamond.

Here is my ring.  Its not the best picture though.

I’ve seen a couple enhanced ones, and they weren’t terribly sparkly.  This probably has more to do with the fact that enhanced blue diamonds are usually treated grey included diamonds rather than the blue treatment.  For clear, sparkly, blue diamonds, maybe check out lab created diamonds.  If the diamond is made with the prescence of boron, the stone ends up being a true blue.  It’ll be more expensive than treated diamonds, but will look better.  DNEA and Takara are a couple companies that make them.

I had a blue ceylon unfired sapphire which gives the same effect as a blue diamond but much more sparkly with a lot more depth.  Still can’t part with it even though I’ve been divorced for over two years.

Mine are definitely sparkly, but not as much as the other diamonds in my ring. We found it at a local jewelry store. My stones are really bright aqua and really clear, but I’ve seen what I’d call “dingy” blue diamonds that are dark greenish blue and a lot less sparkly.

If you want sparkle, you should invest in a lab grown diamond rather than a color treated diamond. I have one, purchased through pompeii3. It’s pretty, but it is pretty flat in comparison to white diamonds. I can see the facets when I look in it, but light doesn’t refract the same way.

I just ordered my blue and white diamond wedding band. I havent seen this particular ring in person. I did do some reasearch though before buying it and saw a few in person and they sparkled like crazy! It’s such an interesting colour, soo rich!

I have a blue diamond engagement ring and it is UBER sparkly! There are a few online retailers who sell blue diamonds. I definitely wouldnt recommend shopping in retail stores.

We ended up going with http://www.FrontJewelers.net who I would highly recommed. They were great to deal with and had so many options.

My fiance and I cannot imagine a more beautiful ring. I am beyond happy with it.

Best of luck!

I believe if you go to a personal jeweler rather than a commercial jewelry store you will find amazing deals on blue diamonds!   My .85 carat blue diamond was $1500.00…and appraises at over $4000.00…it is what you are willing to pay…with also finding the best place to shop!  🙂  Good luck!!!

Brian Gavin would be a good spot for blue diamonds… They are expensive but have rave reviews on the diamond forums.

Ceylon sapphires give you the color and the sparkle.  Just something else to consider

Blue diamonds do have a ton of sparkle but you need to be in the right lighting conditions. Mine sparkles like crazy in bright sunlight and in resturants but not so much on overcast days outside.This picture was taken under a lamplight. I love my blue diamond and would not trade it for anything…except maybe a bigger one..lol
