Flourescence

Hi

 

some of the diamond cert shows that the flourescence of the diamond is faint blue.

Is this good or bad, should i get a stone that says flourescence is none?

my jewler told me that the faint blue makes the diamond looks brighter and it's a good thing. Please help.

 

thanks

hi,

fluorescence is a bit of a complicated subject.

How does it affect the diamond? Well, it makes quite a big difference as to the color of the diamond. The shape of the diamond. The nature of the fluorescence. Generally speaking faint fluorescence is virtually impossible to see.

What is the size of the diamond? What is the shape of the document? Have you seen the diamond?

I'm from southern CA. The diamond is not GIA, but it's from DGC , diamond grading company.

E color, vvs1, exellent/excellent, but i did not notice the grading of flourescence. It's

a heart and arrow cut, so i guess it's ideal cut. The diamond is round.

 

thanks.

hang, my advice is to run not walk away from this one.

This is exactly the type of diamond that absolutely must have a G.I. report GIA.

The lack of a GIA report-or the use of other reports such as what you've seen, raises huge questions.

If it was a cheap diamond, lower color or clarity -then maybe some bogus report would be acceptable.

But not in a diamond which is purported to be E color and VVS clarity and 1.77 carat size

HI Hang,

I do not want to discourage you from buying a very nice diamond, only to caution you that you should be careful who you buy it from.

Since dealers know that only GIA is taken seriously by other dealers, it's important that you find a dealer to sell to you, retail, that will work on the same rules.

It's not that the other labs are bad-what's bad, is sellers trying to convince buyers that the other labs or anything like GIA, and they are not.

it's important to find an honest dealer

Hey Hang, I'm just curious because I'm in the same area. Who is this jeweler that wants to sell a E/VVS1 of that size with a DGC report? Are they downtown in the LA jewelry exchanges?
