I just got engaged and last night out at the bar under black light my diamond started glowing... I have three diamonds on my band and the other two did not glow. My friend said it was strange... but I'm all curious.Should Diamonds glow under black light? The middle diamond is larger than the other two.Any knowledge about this would be great.. thanks!

There is a jeweller in Australia who sells 'disco diamonds'.
Every stone in a setting is full of blue fluorescent diamonds and the jewels glow in black lights in disco environments.
It is an advantage for stones of the color of yours to have some fluro. Dont worry that 1 is and 2 ain't.
Just think of it as a great party trick, tell your friends that one of your diamonds had some radioactive chemical spilt on it today as you walk into the disco
then watch their faces

My guess is that other two doesn't have fluorescence... From Fluorescence section of the tutorial: "About 20% of diamonds exhibit fluorescence. You have probably seen fluorescent minerals in natural history museums. Their fluorescence can be seen in darkened rooms with black lights. The effect is like a white shirt in a discotheque.The most common fluorescent color is blue, and this can vary from weak or faint to very strong." Do you have grading reports for your diamonds? Does your "glowing" diamond look oily or cloudy in the sun light? What is its color grade?
