Size doesn't matter.
Usually, there is no discount for a medium blue H VS.... (according to M. Rapaport)
(maximum in some cases : around - 2%).

Best regards,

Trichrome.

Hey thanks - just a quick followup:

Is a med blue flour considered helpful (and if yes, then how much) in an ex/ex cut H ?

Thanks again!

Fluorescence can be very helpfull in an H stone.... there are some chances it will
make the stone a little bit whiter face up.... It won't change anything about the cut : if your
diamond is not well cut, fluo won't change a thing about it.

Also, fluo makes your diamond unique.... people (like myself) love to see that
glow .... it makes your diamond magical.....and easy to spot besides a zirconium....

However, in the industry, strong blue fluorescent diamonds in the DEF color scale
get a discount.....why?.... because some people will tell you that these diamonds can
get a milky appearance under some types of lights..... bull****.... this phenomenon is very
rare...so you can get a pretty diamond like that for a GREAT price..... if you want to
be safe, go with medium blue...

Hope this helps,

Trichrome.

JMHO - I wouldn't buy a stone *without* bl. fluor. Med/strong blue more than likely will make the stone face up whiter. I have a 3c "I" stone w/ med/strong bl. fluor. The stone faces up plenty white & is set in platinum w/ f/g stones beside it.

The only valid complaint I have heard about stones w/ strong blue fluor is that in sunlight the stone does take on a purplish "hue". One person found that offensive. I like it. On very rare occassions, the stone may appear milky in sunlight. Make sure you view the stone in sunlight.
