Hi Everyone,

While reseaching diamonds for my GF''s E-Ring I learned about fluorescence and its effects on diamonds. There are a lot of threads on this subject on Pricescope. I''m hoping that future people like myself will be able to look at my stone and get some idea of what fluorescence does to a diamond. I''m a huge fan of fluorescent diamonds and feel that it makes a diamond that much more unique. I believe that this diamond is a perfect example of VERY STRONG fluroescence. Feel free to re-post them as an example for others.

First the specs:
AGS 000
.954ct
VS1
I - color
Ideal polish
Ideal symmetry
Very Strong fluorescence
Purchased from James Allen

Now the pictures:
Below are two shots taken within seconds of each other. They were taken outside in direct sunlight.

In the first shot, I used my hand to cast a shadow on the ring. It looks like a "normal" clear diamond.

In the second shot, I removed my hand and let the sun hit the stone directly. The shot has not been doctored in any way. The diamond really looks like that. It is just as clear as in the first shot, but it has an amazing blue "glow" to it. This, my friends is fluorescence in a diamond.

I was inspired by your pictures to try a few of my own! My fluoro isn''t as strong, but it was fun to try!
