This Question Is About:

Diamond ring / tanning bed

Hello! I am wondering 2 things…one, is it bad to wear my diamond engagement ring in the tanning bed? And two, why does my main diamond turn florescent in the tanning bed?

Hi Amy,

Bad? No, but the tanning oils will coat the diamond and sparkle will surely suffer. Tanning beds use UV light and fluorescence is a diamonds’ reaction to UV light. Two out of every three diamonds fluoresce.
