Yes, it's a B&M store. I'm a little concerned about the flouresence taking away from the F color. Do you think this is something to worry about?

What cert does this diamond have (eg. AGS, GIA, EGL etc.). Are you able to see this stone and compare it with one of the same color and no fluorescence. Does it look oily or cloudy?

To learn about the effects of fluorescence take a look at:

https://www.pricescope.com/tutor_fluor.asp to learn about

This is why I am asking about the cert:
Another reason the trade discounts flourescent diamonds is that some laboratories use grading lights that emit a small amount of ultra violet light. This means lower grade blue flourescent diamonds are possibly assigned a better grade than they should.

It has an AGS certification. I have an appointment to look at the stone. I'm also being shown a VS2, G color with no flouresence for $7,800 with extremely similar parameters.

With an AGS cert it should not be an issue with a slight medium fluorescence. Do you have a copy of the AGS cert as it will have the Crown and Pavilon angles so you can run the numbers through the cut advisor and possibly someone can get you an diamcalc picture.

I entered the numbers in to the cut advisor, and it returned a rating of 1.5, with Excellent in all categories except spread, which received a Very Good. I'm assuming this rating is acceptable.
