    Just make sure to check to see if the sbf causes any problems. If not, you’ve got yourself a bargain!

    Hi. Mine is a 1.25 J with strong blue fluor and a jeweler absolutely swore it was a G or H. He was shocked at how white our J was. It looks stunningly white and crisp, and fierey. I am in love with it and my man got an amazing deal for a 1.25 because it was a J! I’ll post a picture when it’s actually on my finger!

    I have a J with SBF and it doesn’t look milky at all!  The SBF gives my diamond a whiter appearance.  I personally sought a diamond with at least some blue flouresence.  It helped with the price as well!

    1.2 carat H color with medium blue fluorescence. It definitely looks blueish in natural light but never cloudy. I think it just depends on the stone

    babybearinhipss:  mine was ritani as well. I think as long as you have a detailed video on the diamon you will know if it looks milky or not. A reputible website will also let you view in person before you buy.

    elatedmidnight:  thank you! I think it’s .8 carats. I’m not 100% certain though. It was my husband’s late grandmother’s diamond, she wore it for 50 years. I wear a size 4.5.

    babybearinhipss:  I don’t mind! No, never yellow at all! I also have an H color princess cut diamond with fluorescence and it does show some warmth in certain lighting, but that’s because fancy shapes show more color than rounds. As long as you stick with an excellent cut round, you will see no warmth in an H or I with or without fluorescence.  It seems like fluorescence really comes in handy with J-K color stones too, so if you get the chance I’d look at some Js as well.
