    I’m not sure, but when I’m at work and under black lights, my diamond glows bright white/blue/purple.  I’m not sure how to describe it, but its so pretty and noticable.  I’ll have to find out for sure and I’ll let you know

    I thought it would be nice to have a fluorescing diamond, but I’m alright with it not having fluorescence.  I haven’t checked the band to see if any of those stones fluoresce.

    I have another ring with small diamonds that have some fluorescence, but it’s really not noticeable because the diamonds are so small.

    Right before the wedding I went to a tanning salon and could see it lighting up. It was neat (but i was afraid to open my eyes).

    @ellabee: while florencense can make a diamond look whiter it’s not considered a desireable diamond quality because it also makes it look merky or hazy.  If a diamond has florencense, its price will be significantly lower than the same diamond that does not have florecense.  Your diamond certificate should clearly state whether your diamond has florecence.

    Yes, mine has a bit of flourescence.  It’s considered a lower-quality thing and makes the diamond cheaper, but it makes my ring look so white and bright.  It is awesome.

    edit: blue flourescence, that is.

    My center stone doesn’t, but three of my random other 32 tiny ones do haha! One of them is SO bright, and I really kinda wish my center stone did it, I think it’s awesome!

    FH says he believes there is a faint blue flourescents. It’s on the certificate but I’m too lazy to go look.
