I have fallen in love!!!  Love this asscher cut...I think either of these would make a fine 20th anniversary gift!



I choose number one as this would be unusual as I love sapphires....but this one is very unusual though...I prefer uniqueness~!

Great minds think alike!  Number 1 is the one I was leaning towards too!

Darn, I have to admit I like the second one!

Is it true that you can easily tell a fake diamond from a real one by holding it under a strong light for a while. If its fake it should glow for a short while after the light has been switched off, I think!
Needs to be done in a dark room me thinks.

But as I have no diamonds, real or fake, I cant try it...anyone?

COOOOOOOOL!!!!! That is pretty cool!!! But, then I'd buy a fake one, because I like the glowiness.. Heehee. I want to try the experiment, but my parents hide their diamonds away! :o

Hmm.. I assume a few minutes, like 2-3 minutes under a light bulb or something. But the more time it is under, then the brighter the glow would be. Could you try it for us Carolyn? And tell us the results. ;D I'm really curious. ;D Oh. Take a picture too, without the flash! ;D If that's possible, that is. ;D

Well, I have a whole bunch of Cubic zirconias and as a firm believer in empirical study I will now conduct this experiment !!

Or does it work with other fake diamond materials ?
