So my SO is toggling between the two colors and cant decide on which one to buy to put in my ring. I don’t really like warnth in a diamond, but want him to get a better deal by going for a G or an H…. I know G’s are pretty white…but is H pushing it?
Does anyone own these and have pics?
Thank you SOO much for your help

To me it doesn’t look warm or yellow at all On a regular basis. the only time I can see it is next to colorless diamonds. Not a big deal to me though. All diamonds are unique. Always helps to see it in person before buying it.

I’ve got an H and it’s not warm or yellow at all. As soon as I have enough light I’ll try to snap a pic. If it helps we debated between a G and then went for H to go up in clarity. No issues with color at all.

Mine is an EGL E, which would be more like a G/H by GIA standards. I never see yellow/warmth in it even with the rose gold reflecting.

Mine is a G/H and there is no hint of yellow in it at all. Every diamond is different, though, but I’ve never seen any warmth in mine (in my profile pic).

Mine is an EGL F…which is about a H I would say. It appears white all the time. I don’t have any issues with warmth with this stone.
It depends on the stone though. I don’t ever like to go off of what a certificate says and would much rather see the stone in person and compare.

Mine is G in color. I don’t see yellow in it – even from the side.

What are the diamonds cut?
If it’s an excellent cut H, it shouldn’t show color.
If it’s a good cut H, it probably will show some warmth.

GIA H or I should be fine… It’s still near colorless.

Mine is a G and it looks 100% white all the time.

westcoast_girl: My original ERing has an H-colored center stone.
I’ve never noticed much warmth in it. I think G or H-colored stones are beautiful and can be a wonderful value. But I agree with what PPs mentioned: It’s always best to look at a stone in person before making a final decision. Stones can vary widely in warmth within the same color classification. And cut and clarity can make a big difference, too.
Also, you might want to think about what type of setting you want. And what type of metal. You might notice more warmth if your center stone is surrounded by smaller stones of a higher color or if it’s set into a whiter metal. Not always … but it’s a possibility.
Good luck with your search for the perfect stone and setting, too (if you haven’t already found one, that is). It’s a super exciting time, and I’m happy for you!

A G or H stone graded by GIA or AGS will not be at all warm/yellow. For an I, it’s really about where on the I color spectrum it falls – there are high I’s and low I’s. By J there is usually a faint tint.

I have an H color princess cut diamond and it does show some warmth in certain lighting..but with an H color round brilliant you shouldnt see any warmth.

Thank you all soooo much!!! You put my mind at ease. It will be an Excellent cut GIA certified cushion diamond…so it shouldn’t show any warmth then.
My SO will see it in person (but you know how guys tend to be a little color blind? hahah)
Im looking forward to posting a pic of it soon!!!

I tried on a bunch in that range at Tiffanys a few months ago and I did not notice any warmth whatsoever- and I got a 98% on that color senstivity test.
Very exciting theres ring progress!!!
