Hi guys

I'm new to the forum

I got the engagement ring for my future fiancé from a jeweller

0.9 carat D color SI1 however STRONG FLUORESCENCE

Under the light the diamond looks a bit blurry but I guess it's a bit normal?

Does it look milky or hazy to you as I am unable to tell for sure

Thanks a lot!

It does not look like it to me but then your picture is not very close up. How does it look outside in the sun? Perhaps you
should take it to an appraiser if you are concerned and dont know what to look for.

It is hard to tell from the photo, although it does not appear hazy based on the clear contrast and brightness pattern.

The effect of strong blue fluo can vary alot.

Some diamonds with strong blue can be completely clear and radiate clean blue.
Some radiate slightly pastel blue, which can be stunning as well.
Some are just murky/cloudy/hazy.

The toughest part is differentiating pastel and cloudy/hazy.
You will have to assess the diamond under various lighting conditions, including direct sunlight.

See how the diamond interacts with UV in sunlight and glows and if the appearance pleases you.

There are many youtube videos on strong fluo and hazy diamond. Also many PS threads as well.

PS. I like the case. It reminds me of LV epi leather.
