@hopefloats: I’m pretty sure I remember you getting a nice quality stone. It could just need a bath. 🙂

Gray… as in the colour, or as in it’s looking dull? Rings can get dirty quite quickly… try having it cleaned before panicking!

it’s probably dirty. i know mine starts to look grey and dingy when i havent washed it.

try this: boil some hot water

line a bowl with foil (shiny side out)

cover your rings in baking soda

pour the boiling hot water over and let them soak for 5 minutes

take a fork and pick your rings out  (cause they will be hot) and wait for them to cool. then run it under warm tap water and they will be super clean again!

@hopefloats: This might be a stupid question, but could it be that you’re just getting used to seeing it on your finger? Like it’s not catching your attention as much as you thought it was initially?

@hopefloats: If I touch the table of my diamond it scuzzes up so quickly. I keep a glasses cloth on hand to give it a wee wipe every time it looks messy.

How did they clean it?  Maybe they put something on it that is actually attracting dust and dulling it.

@hopefloats: It doesn’t look grey at all. It looks lovely.

I had a lot of issues about my diamond at times over the last year, but now I’m back to loving it.

@hopefloats: When you go in, definitely bring it up to them.

However, it doesn’t look grey to me at all, it’s absolutely stunning!

It doesn’t look grey, it looks lovely!!! And huge, who doesn’t love that?!

 

When I am at the gym or in Starbucks (I guess it’s the halogen lights?) my ring looks almost silver-ish. Everywhere else it looks normal!

In some lighting conditions mine looks silvery too but in good lights it looks like a disco ball.
