So, which of the following 4 looks to be the best ??

Also, what is the difference between Very Strong and Strong Blue ???
And finally, if I wanted to compare all 4 of these in person, does anyone know if WF will ship all of them to an appraiser for one cost or if I would have to pay 4 shipping costs ???

Thanks guys for all your help . . .

Welcome


They all have possibilities, but I prefer the last - it looks great, plus we have an image to work with. I would think very strong blue is stronger than strong blue
, in my opinion fluorescence can be a lovely thing, just check with the guys at WF that the diamonds you are interested in don't display any negatives from the strong or very strong, but I doubt you would have a problem. Regarding the whys and wherefores of the shipping costs, it might be best to give WF a call or email regarding this. The second diamond also looks like it is well worth investigating further, see if WF have an Idealscope Image of it or can pull the diamond and check it out for you - also that it is eyeclean being an SI clarity, but there is a good chance it might be.

I sure will post an give ya''ll my feelings on the stone. It is set to arrive next week after Christmas.
I have another fuor question (will repost in a separate thread if I don''t get any responses here)

If the strong blue fluor has no visible milky effects when I get the diamond, can it develop it later on ???
So, my question is will I have to worry about its milky look for the rest of my life?
Is it highly likely to look worse when dirty than a non-fluor stone?
THANKS for any insight you experts can provide me.

you better not let that stone get dirty!

i have not ever noticed a flouro stone looking worse when dirty. all diamonds look best when they''re clean though. keep it clean!

hehehe . . . of course I will keep it clean . . . and that brings me to yet another question.
All my friends have rings from B&M stores where they get free cleanings twice a year and prong checks and so on.
What do people who buy online do about regular cleanings and inspections?

well, if you clean your rings everyday (like you should!
) and maybe invest in an ultrasonic (fab!) then the extra cleanings by the jeweler won''t be as important. that said, you should look around for a jeweler that you can go to for those things as needed. most are happy to accomodate cleanings and inspections (as long as you are nice and appreciative!) especially if you buy a little something now and then.

You can take it to any jeweler and they''ll clean it and check prongs. Most do it for free, some charge a nominal fee if you didn''t buy the ring from them

I take mine to get professionally cleaned about every 3 months, but I clean it at home every day. They''re prettiest that way.
