So, due to el nino, I wasn’t able to inspect my stone in direct sunlight. Today’s sky is clear! So I took some photos.
The stone I got has medium fluorescence on color G stone. Is this too much blue? I plan to propose to my gf next month. got a few weeks to replace stone. Would you ladies be okay with this much blue?
Some regular indoor shots first
some fire shot
now outdoor shots… I definitely see some blue.
not hazy, milky or oily though
I don’t think my gf has a clue what blue fluorescence is, but she might notice her stone is blue outside? so again, would you ladies be happy with this?

Doesn’t look at all hazy or overblue and it’s obviously a well cut stone. It’s all good!

Medium blue is nothing to be concerned about in ANY stone. No stone can be be milky, oily or hazy due to medium blue fluoro. GIA studies indicate that not only can most people not tell when/if a stone has fluorescence, but most inspectors cannot tell, either, without a black light. The vast majority of any blue you see in sunlight is due to reflection, not fluoro. Overblue stones are rare enough that there are collectors of them; you will almost never find one without specifically seeking one out.
And that is my round-about way of saying that your stone looks absolutely beautiful. I wouldn’t dream of changing it.

I have an E stone with medium blue fluor. It isn’t noticeable at all. That stone you picked isn’t overblue (and it’s very unlikely a G with medium fluor would be overblue), so you are fine.

The concern with fluorescence in a colorless or near colorless stone is that it could cause haziness or cloudiness (clearly not the case here), not that it’s too blue in sunlight. Many people often describe DEF color grade diamonds WITHOUT fluoro as being almost blue-white, and that’s considered a desirable attribute. Chill! I’d love a diamond with fluoro; they’re so interesting!

Keep in mind that diamonds are basically just tiny mirrors – what you’re seeing is partly the sky reflection I’d wager. It looks like a beautiful stone, and I think she is going to be very happy!
