I thought this would be an easy decision since I really really like my G IF oval, but it’s not-of course. The I VS1 oval is stunning. It has no bowtie and sparkles like crazy! It looks huge compared to the smaller oval. However, it is definitely warm. Please help me decide! Once again…lots of pics!
The I diamond next to the G/H diamonds:

@Heidibrooke: Honestly, I can barely see the difference. However, I do prefer warmer diamonds, so I voted the bigger I!

That warmth would drive me crazy but I am very color sensitive…love that bigger size though!

I prefer the more elongated look of the oval you already have. I would keep it.

Although I love that the larger one has no bowties, it is too warm for my tastes. I would stick with the G.

@Heidibrooke: I definitely like the wamer larger stone! Not only is the size awesome, but I actually prefer the tint of warmth in it! 🙂
Plus, I sort of like the larger ones proportions a little more.

I am ambivalent about warmth so I’d go for the bigger one, personally. It just depends on whether you’ll look at it and just be irritated at seeing yellow….

Yes, side by side, you can see a difference in color, but I don’t think it’s a great difference, and I’ve always preferred a little warmth. So, to me, bigger with little warmth is win-win. YMMV.
ETA: When on your finger, the difference in color is minimized. I see the biggest difference in color against the white background – and thats apples to oranges since the warmer stone is flat and the cooler stone is mounted and on the side.

@Heidibrooke: The other is definitely too warm for my tastes. I’d worry that instead of the size making you question it, it would now be the color that makes you want to switch. Ovals show warmth easily, and I can definitely tell. I have an F, and I love how white it is.

The bigger one sparkles more in my opinion and the warmth is only apprent in a side be side comparison. I say go bigger.

I think the bigger one is prettier. It has a fatter shape to it that I prefer in ovals. I think it looks a lot sparklier than your current stone. I don’t see a difference in color honestly, but I’m not color sensitive 🙂

I am not a fan of warmth, so I would stick with the smaller stone. I also like it’s thinner proportions, which visually elongate your finger and make everything a bit more elegant.

I think you need to figure out if the warmth will bother you in time. That will likely be the deciding factor.
It seems to bother you a bit now… so it might bother you a lot in the future.

I prefer the smaller, cooler diamond. I’m pretty colour sensitive though, so I notice quite a large difference. The diamond that you already have is beautiful !
