Since we seem to be on the topic of light yellow transitional cuts, I thought I''d show mine.

I bought this .27 carat R SI2 (according to the seller anyway--it''s ungraded) transitional cut diamond a year or two ago. The inclusion looks a bit on the big side, but hey, it was less than $40, and anyway, I actually like inclusions.

Under UV light it shows a bit of yellow fluorescence, which could be contributing to the nice lemony color.

Here it is sitting in a vintage (1920s?) setting I have, along with a couple other small diamonds. One is a .30ish J I1 with (I believe) medium blue fluorescence (I don''t remember exactly & can''t put my hands on its papers right now), and the other is a .29 F I1 with strong blue, graded by AGS. I took this shot in strong, shaded daylight, and I like it because it shows the effects of the fluorescence pretty clearly.

Sure--here you go. It''s an 18K setting I bought on ebay umpteen years ago, but I haven''t ever gotten around to setting any stones in it. I''m not sure what would be best. I''ve thought about setting the three little diamonds, but they''re more fun to play with loose.

The setting again.

Thanks for the compliments, guys. I know it''s not a high quality diamond by any means--I just thought it was fun having a little yellow guy & couldn''t resist at that price.

I LIKE it! I think I''m deciding more and more that I love yellowish stones. They look so yummy!

And here are the Three Little Bears under UV light.
Oh my
what a COOL photo!

That's it. I'm officially in love with medium blue fluorescence.

I really love your R stone too - I'm a big fan of its faceting. Really beautiful. Thank you for sharing!

Aw, thank you guys for the kind words!

Musey, the one on the left (the J) has medium blue fluo, and the one on the right (the F) has strong. Which are you a fan of--medium or strong? (Or both?)

It''s funny, my Infinity has strong blue fluo, as graded by AGS, but it''s far less strong than the strong blue in these pictures, more like the medium in these pictures. I wish my Infinity went purple in daylight like the F does in the daylight photo here.

Medium all the way, baby!

They''re both very cool, but I like the slightly softer glow of the medium.

Ah. Yes, I know what you mean. I love how there are different colors of fluorescence, like the yellowish fluo in the R. My L OEC--my Grandma Rosie''s diamond--has very faint greenish fluo. It''s really subtle, but cool.

Someday when I win the lottery, I''m going to have a piece of jewelry made with carefully selected pave, so that in ordinary light it just looks sparkly, but under UV the diamonds all light up in different colors and spell out a secret message. Won''t that be fun?

Thanks, Grace!

It wants maybe 4.5 mm stones? Something like that. What kind of stones do you suggest?

Hands down, my choice would be OMCs or early OECs and mostly because I love "ring pop" diamonds in these settings.

Did I mention its gorgeous and I'm envious
?

Thank you!

"Ring pop" diamonds is a great idea--I love the idea of their little heads sticking up.

I do love the setting in the box, but it's not so flattering on my stubby little fingers, which is probably why I haven't set anything in it yet. It really should belong to someone with long, elegant fingers.

What a little cutie. I love the soft yellow color.

$40? I''ll take ten!!!

The ring also looks great.
