Why would a diamond do this, and have you seen it before?

My diamond seems to appear what ever color is around. And I don''t mean a little like it reflects in some of the facets, it like REALLY takes on a color. For example, when I am in our basement which has red oak rafters, my ring is VERY pinkish red. If I am in a room that is painted a vivid color, like blue, my diamond turns blue. And when I am in my SUV, which has tan interior, my ring turns this aweful tannish green color. I think the green is from the sun strip on the windshield. Anyone seen or heard of this before?

A diamond that is gathering the Intensity, Color, Brightness of light, and "details" in the environment it is in, is a good thing.

It is showing you it is returning well the "elements" of what it is getting and returning this back to your eye.

Even if you pass your hand over the stone, you should see the color of your skin, refracting through the facets, as you move your hand. If you do it is performing well.

Hope that helps.

well, i would think that this means you have a well cut diamond where all the light coming in through the table is going back out through the table.

pros- correct me if I''m wrong.

Why would a diamond do this, - a diamond can reflect back only a part of what was coming in, if the main amount of light was of a particular wavelength (for example red in a room with red walls which absorbed other colors of light but red) your stone will return same waves to your eyes.

and have you seen it before? - everybody have, think of your diamond as a mirror, walk into your basement with one and point it to the wall - you will see a wall reflected and if your mirror is not colored (like colorless diamond) you will see a color of the wall.

This example is simplified to the extreme to illustrate just one of the properties of diamond.

WoW! Ok, thanks. I feel better now. I''ve never seen another diamond that did it, but those pictures really helped. I guess it bothered me mostly because of how ugly it is in my car. LOL.

mine definitely does that as well, i love it. it makes the diamond such a chameleon. one of my fave places to view my stone is in my car which is blue interior. so it picks up these lovely icy white blues in the stone and makes it look kinda fluorescenty, especially when it''s newly cleaned. ahh *sigh*

Cehrabehra, what did you mean by ''Does the aset have a lot of green?''
oh I was just curious where the color was coming from - someone who knows more about ASET could explain it better....
