Fluorescent Diamonds or UV Glow diamond

What is a UV Glow Diamond?

  • This type of diamond has a unique feature of glowing under ultra violet light which is mostly found in a night clubs, night spots etc.
  • Fluorescence is produced by trace minerals that are present in the diamond which gives them glow when they come in contact of UV lights. Different ultraviolet lamps are used in laboratories to test the fluorescence of a diamond. Also since the sun also emits ultraviolet rays therefore diamonds respond in sunlight as well. Approximately 1/3 of the diamonds has fluorescence effect and most of them fluoresce blue but they have fluorescence in other colours as well. While 95% of the diamonds fluoresce in the colour blue, the other common fluorescence colour is yellow. Colours other than blue and yellow are found rarely.
  • Diamonds under ultra violet light look like as below. The glow of diamond varies as per the   fluorescence value . Read more about diamond fluorescence here.

Why you should buy Diamonds with UV Glow?

  • As compared to diamonds which do not have florescence, the diamonds with florescence are less costly.
  • Some of the jewelers review sites or ecommerce sites describe florescence as a negative feature of the diamond. If a diamond has blue fluorescence it may look heavier in color as compared to its actual color, but in fact it’s a good feature. The reason that florescence was earlier considered to be negative since people use to think that color grade given to a diamond is lower than visible color of the diamond. So people have doubt that the amount paid for diamond is more as compare to its original value. The colors used to change and looked different because of the florescence effect. But if it was still able to reflect the true colors in spite of florescence, it was considered to be a worth of a diamond and to be more valuable than the original value.
