During their July sale, I purchased a fancy intense yellowish orange diamond from Leibish. It's a lovely little pear and is pretty much exactly as pictured and described. The only difference is that the GIA report says it fluoresces a medium blue but when I shine my (long wave) UV light on it, it looks like it's fluorescing yellow or orange.

oo I love it! What a gorgeous colour! I never used to "get" pear love, but I think I'm turning around, after seeing such gorgeous pears lately. Can't wait to see it haloed! :love:

Mmm, it's beautiful and a nice FCD size too.
FWIW I've noticed a couple of mine also have florescence that does not seem to match the GIA report.
I wonder if GIA uses some certain type of UV light or some combo of UV with white light when grading fluor.

Sig, you never ask a lady her weight, age or shoe size. :D

Yep. Never ask. Just assume. And present your assumptions. "Excuse me, are you 63, 15 stone, and a size 13?". Always goes down well.

Especially if you miss by a couple of digits. Good fun.

Hmm, came back to look at that pretty little pear. Good stuff.

Heh, my diamond is a svelte .31 carats and is about 5.5mm x 3.5mm. I didn't ask the age but I'm guessing a couple million years

She looks young and vibrant for her age ;))

Beautiful colour and very nice shape.
