My ring is a swarm of small, round-cut diamonds. The various other day while in ~ a friend’s house, the light to be coming in with the windows and also hitting my ring. The light spots that reflected top top his table, were tiny rainbows.

You are watching: Do real diamonds have rainbow sparkle

I thought diamonds weren’t supposed to reflect rainbows? (Again, I’m talking about the tiny spots that were relfected top top the table, not what I observed inside the diamonds.)

I saw a an extremely highly encourage jeweler, and also even permit him know that I supplied to job-related with a jeweler earlier in mine hometown… so i dont *think* he’d try and screw me over… my sister said since it’s a swarm ring, the irradiate is boucing turn off of every the tiny diamonds everywhere and also creating rainbows but.. I’m no sure.

Could this be fake diamonds? ns love the means my ring looks, however if my fiance PAID for diamonds, y’know… money doesn’t thrive on trees… lol

All diamonds reflect “rainbows.” It’s dubbed fire and also a authorize of a well-cut stone.

EDIT: It’s likewise normal because that them to reflect on various other surfaces if the lighting setting is right. Noþeles that shows light go the very same thing.

Diamonds reflect rainbows ONTO other objects. They perform not sparkle with rainbows in the rock itself. It’s tough to define unless you have a diamond and a cz alongside each other, yet diamonds have a white/grey/silver sparkle in the rock itself, whereas cz has actually a rainbow interior sparkle.

My diamond shoots rainbows everywhere the place when the sunlight hits it. Especially in the car, it’s so lot fun! yet in regular lighting it will have actually the normal white sparkle on the stone its self. However in certain lighting it does have actually rainbow sparkle ~ above the stone, a really well cut diamond have the right to do this and also it doesn’t look favor a CZ.

Great write-up by vorpalette:(Reply # 3)

Lol, “Shooting Rainbows” ROCK… method you have actually a well reduced stone.

I’ve had my ERing 11 months now… and also I am an extremely pleased that summertime (and more sunshine is back)… due to the fact that this infant glitterslike all obtain out in natural Sunlight… favor sitting top top the patio, or in the car.

Only other locations I’ve to be able to “simulate” something even similar indoors… is if there room pin-point halogen pot-lights about (like they have in Jewellery Stores).

Lol, Winter has been far too long (and overcast) this year… I’m happy to have the sparkle ago !!

Hope this helps,

vorpalette: relying on what angle ns look at my diamond you have the right to see rainbows inside of it. It’s normal v a fine cut stone if it’s large enough to reflect irradiate within itself.

No, probably not.

Diamonds have plenty the “fire,” simply not together a high relationship of fire to white light return together diamond-imitations favor CZ or moissanite. You need to see white light being returned ago from your diamonds too, specifically in less intense light. If it’s always way more fancy light than white light coming earlier from them, that’s an ext questionable.

As well, the fact that the “fire” was outside of the human body of the diamonds sounds favor they are diamonds… moissanite specifically (and brand-new CZ as well, but to a lesser degree) often tends to have actually it inside the stone as well.
