@Chay:

This is my first post (been lurking for a few weeks now), I am having the same issue as you have. I just recieved my e-ring on 12/3  and the first time I went out in the bright sunlight I was shocked. I have attached a pic, is this the same thing that is happening to you? I need to go back to the jewlers on a sunny day and show him exactly what I am seeing.

That looks like flouresence to me. Was type of diamond grading report do you have? Among jewelers, only GIA and AGS reports are known to be accurate. Other grading reports are not as reputable and can often be off in their grading. I might suggest going to an independent GIA certified gemologist if you want to find out your diamonds stats.

I wouldn’t panic as flouresence is actually a very desirable trait to many. The only reason it gets a bad rap is that is some minute portion of flouresent diamonds there can be a cloudy or oily appearance. But this is very rare. Pricescope has a good education section on this

Also an easy way to tell if you have flouresence is to get under a black light if you can find one.

Sounds like it’s fluorescence.

I’ve seen bits of blue light shining from my diamonds from time to time, but I never noticed if the stone itself looks blue?  Sometimes they look almost gray depending on the lighting…but that happens with all my diamonds (all from different jewelers, and I’m sorry to say I don’t know the specs on color or clarity).  I’m curious to know what that means though!

It’s definitely flourescence.  If you are a clubbing person, you can see it turn neon blue when the black lights are on.  Enjoy the show!

I agree that EGL grading isn’t as accurate as GIA or AGS.  It looks like flourescence to me.  Since your stone is an I color, the blue will actually help make your stone look whiter.  I’ve heard people who try to get a little blue flourescence if they go beyond a J color to offset any yellowness.
