Fluorescence in a diamond is a natural phenomenon that causes 35% of diamonds to glow under ultraviolet light.
A diamond's fluorescence is not visible to the naked eye.
In most diamonds the fluorescence is seen as blue, but in rare cases can be green, yellow or orange.
Fluorescence is caused by the presence of nitrogen in the diamond and does not have any negative effect on the diamond. It also does not affect a diamonds structural integrity in any way.
Many people prefer the appearance of diamonds that have fluorescence in them and also lower grades can come at a lower cost.
Fluorescence in a diamond is another natural characteristic of the diamond. It is measured on the grading report on a scale ranging from None to Very Strong.
The example below shows how diamonds with difference fluorescence levels would look under ultra violet lighting.
Diamonds that we source here at Angelic Diamonds are usually a maximum fluorescence of medium as standard.
If you would like to guarantee any grade please just get in touch and we can certainly look to source a diamond with your exact requirements for you.
The light emitted from diamonds with fluorescence lasts only as long as the diamond is exposed to the ultraviolet source, it will not remain emitting from the diamond once the light has gone, or at any other time.
No or None
Faint or Slight
Strong or Very Strong
