It'* not really glowing. It'* refracting off all the facets of the stone. There might even be some adhsive/epoxy holding the stones base in. It might be that, then that glow is refracted through the stone.

I don't know diamonds, but I know refraction/light, etc.

Glowing under blacklight means they are diamonds and not CZ, but not very good diamonds.
