Hi all,

I am a novice at this so all opinions are greatly appreciated. I am looking at diamonds in the G to H color, can fluorescence be beneficial in enhancing the color of the diamond?

Thanks.

Hi Ttrutt,


The arguement behind fluorescence continues.

Basically, fluorescence has a nitro-glycerine type
quality behind it.

A little or,(faint to medium)can be harmless, and in some cases helpful with color. But to much can cause the diamonds appearance to be oily, cloudy or murky.

Now this is not applicable to all diamonds with strong to very strong fluorescence, only some!

Best thing to do is get the diamond checked by an independent appraiser, and keep that question on your things to ask list.


Buy Informed!

Can some of these super heavily flourescenced diamonds take on the appearance of Opalized diamonds?
