I am not an expert, but does your diamond have blue fluorescence? If you are not happy with the diamond, maybe you might want to consider returning it before your time runs out on the return policy. From what I have read, fluorescence can cause a cloudy look, but this is not always the case.

What lab graded this diamond? When you say that this does not look like the diamond that you purchased, do you mean outside of the jewelry store lighting? Have you put your proportions in the HCA advisor to see where this diamond falls?

The diamond is a H color other then that I do not know, I am waiting for the information to be sent to me with the other information. I have noticed that then the stone is wet it is really pretty but when dry it does have a slight cloudy look to it. does this flourence that it is showing thru affect the value?:confused:

Hi! I am just curious at where you have purchased this diamond that you are still waiting for the cert and information on it. I personally would not want a diamond that looked cloudy unless in water. There are so many options out there - you really should take the time to look and see what is available. What size is the diamond that you purchased? If the diamond has a strong blue fluorescence, it will effect the value of the diamond - especially if it is displaying cloudy.

Hope that this helps! Like I said, I am no expert - just have loved reading and learning all that I could during our buying experience. Cut Nut is one of the experts on here.

For starters I went to helzburg diamonds, :rolleyes: . The ring that I like had a lower qty diamond in it so I requested another stone. . . The one that they ??switched?? it with was really nice, from what I remember and shined and was clear under the lighting conditions in the store from that I thought. But now that I have the ring out in the normal lighting condition of my work or out in the sun and house, it seems to not sparkle like I first thougt. Now I was not the person that picked up the ring from the store after the stone was replaced and the sizing so who knows what really happened. i just know that I am not all that happy with it. . . it is a 1/3ct Marquee(sp) cut. :devil:

We had our diamond set at a Helzburg Diamonds, and they have a full 100 day refund policy. You sound like you are very unhappy with the diamond - I would not keep something that was nagging at me, like your diamond seems to be doing to you.

I don't know if you have researched the cut of diamonds at all, but if you do decide to return it - it might be worth your time to learn a little more about the 4 c's. This site has some great information!
