  • poll: Is your diamond fluorescent?

    Yes, blue or purple . (faint, medium, or strong)

    Yes, yellow. (faint, medium, or strong)

    Yes, other color. (faint, medium, or strong)

    No

    I don't know and it doesn't matter to me.

    I don't know, but I would really like to know.

    My gem is an awesome non-diamond stone.

    Extra other option.

    @littlemissmango: haha I am a BAD Catholic…..I didn’t give anything up! I would like to look at pricescope, but I am afraid to get addicted (as I am with this!). I kinda want a wedding band with fluorescent diamonds now! My engagement ring (main stone) doesn’t have any :-(. It sounds kinda fun to have one!

    I don’t THINK it does. Is it done to a diamond or a natural thing.

     

    Bees- don’t be offended by people saying things are “lower quality” or “less desirable”. Nobody is trying to take a cut at you or your ring, its just an industry standard. OR you can join this post

    The one my Fiance proposed to me had it, but he made the shop replace it with one that didn’t when it was resized, because he thought it was a quality thing.

    I actually quite liked it but it did look cloudy next to the other diamonds in the shop.

    I have never heard of this before! I doubt mine does though, my diamond was very low cost.

    Mine has a medium blue fluorescence.  I’ve never seen it glow thought, but I think it would be cool!  It does not take away from the value of the stone, for some reason people have decided they don’t want it.  I have a lower on the color scale stone but it looks white from the top so maybe it does help.

    Mine doesn’t glow (just checked it).  I had never heard of this before but it’s fun to read about.

    mine scintillates blue! It looks blue in pictures because it emits blue light when the flash hits it. I *heart* it!

    I don’t think my center stone does. I’m not sure if the diamonds on either side or in the band do.

    My report says that it has strong blue fluorescence.  I haven’t looked at it under a black light but it definitely has a strong white appearance when looked at straight-on.  I was recently told by someone that they’ve “never seen a diamond that was so white before”.  🙂  It’s rated as G to start with.  I don’t think it looks cloudy.  It might be a little cloudy under some lighting, but I don’t really have anything to compare it to.  It looks very clear and very sparkly most of the time. 🙂 It was also cheaper than stones of comparible quality without fluorescence because it’s considered to be an imperfection, so it was a good deal for Fiance since we both think the fluorescence is really cool.  I’m going to take a look at it under the UV at work next week if I don’t forget. 🙂

    Yea! Fun topic. I’m deciding between 2 diamonds now, just got them in from James allen. It is a one carat pear, H Color, Si1, and it has very strong flourescence. On this diamond, I think I would say that the flourescence makes the diamond look slightly milky in some light. But you know something, compared to the 0.61 carat, I colored cushion (vs2), I’m actually pretty torn! You can actually see a faint blue glow to it in the sunlight vs. the comparatively slightly yellower cushion. I love the color and effect so much, I think I might be able to forgive the fact that it isn’t quite as clear as the other stone. Both stones cost around $1350, so I’d be getting way more diamond for the money.
