    Diamonds reflect light. When light hits the surface of a diamond, it bounces off the surface and travels in a new direction. This is called reflection. However, diamonds also have a high refractive index, meaning that they are able to bend and distort light as it passes through them. This is why diamonds have such a brilliant and sparkling appearance. So, while diamonds do both reflect and refract light, they primarily reflect it.
