Need advice on a strong florescent diamond.

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I'm new to this forum, I'm sure this question has been asked countless times. I figure every situation is different so I thought I'd come here for help. I've found a diamond that I'm happy with the specs....all but the strong florescent. As I understand it usually there is a 1% chance of a negative impact. I'm going to add a link to the diamond, can I please get an honest opinion from everyone here, thanks.

I wouldn't say it's a roll of the dice. As you point out, "overblues" (hazy/oily look in UV-rich lighting) are rare, and vendors should be able to help by asking whoever holds the stone to report on it - second hand information isn't always 100% reliable, but it's not in their interest to lie to you since detection is easy and would only result in cost for them! Also, since this is a JA exclusive diamond ("True Hearts"), they may have more information on it or even hold the stone directly.

Great insight and advice, thank you
