I love diamonds of those colors…however, they are not for everyone. I suggest before purchasing you see it in person (if possible) some can be very pretty and others can just look yuck.

Do you have a picture??

@CarolinaPeach13:  well, like you said it’s hard to tell from the picture. The stone is going to look a lot more yellow next to white diamonds set in white gold..soooo…if that’s the look you are going for, go for it!

I have a right hand ring that has yellow diamond accents and they are set in yellow gold with white gold and white diamonds…I personally love it.

 

In all honesty I would ask for a better picture….can you return it if you don’t like it?

@CarolinaPeach13:  I think yellow prongs will reall help set the stone apart fwiw 🙂

@CarolinaPeach13:  When one is very specific about color, I would try to see it in person or buy from a distance if they have a return policy.

ETA: If you want intense yellow, I would go sapphire. There are some really sparkly intense yellow ones out there!

@CarolinaPeach13:  There’s a bee on here with a low color grade- let me see if I can find her– I can never remember names!

I think if you do light yellow it needs a yellow gold basket and prongs, personally. Where are you buying from? For colored diamonds I would go with diamonds by lauren. They also seem to know just how to set colored diamonds to enhance the color.

U won’t look like yellow. It’ll just look like a lower colored stone. For a YELLOW effect, you need to at minimum go with W-X, better if Y-Z. Then add a yellow cup to enhance it.

And yes, it looks like a very poorly cut stone (the one you posted a pic of). The table looks large, and the lower girdle facets look dead. It’s too shallow.?
