I know that full-on green diamonds are radioactive… so… slightly radioactive maybe?

There are diamonds that have a green tint, to varying degrees. It’s a fancy color, like yellow diamonds, so it’s just a preference. It’s not necessarliy good or bad. I’m guessing green undertones means it’s very slight. James Allen often has them for sale, with actual pics of the stones. http://www.jamesallen.com/loose-diamonds/fancy-color/green 

 


 

Sorry, tried to post as a link, but I’m new, and apparently did it wrong, lol. Here’s a screen shot from the website

@AllRosesandSunshine:  Personally, I’m a huge fan of diamonds that are not pure white. Green is personal favorite, along with champagne colored diamonds. I would totally rock a green-tinted diamond. But, it all depends on your preferences. Also, you may want to check their return policy; if you’re considering keeping it (based on how it looks in person) definitely make sure you can return it if it’s not to your liking. Good luck! And if you decide to keep it, please post pics!

@Opheliah:  all three diamonds on the bottom row of the image you posted are gorgeous and right up my alley. Laughing

Instead of being yellow or brown, the J colored diamond has a greenish tint to it.

Presonally, I would vastly prefer a green undertone to a yellow/brown undertone.  If it’s a J, it will still be very light.  It might be really nice.  Do they have a decent return policy if you get it and hate it?

If it’s a J, it is probably only the lightest green tint, and only visible if a) you’re looking or b) in certain lights. It’s just greenish instead of yellowish or brownish as moriah said. I suspect it’s going to be amazing, so I hope you post pics, even if you don’t keep it!

Also, since you chose a J color (my personal favorite), you probably weren’t expecting a totally pure, blinding white anyway, so it might not even bother you at all.

@AllRosesandSunshine:  hmmm,I would not want green undertones in my diamond unless it was my intent to have a fancy colored diamond.

Can you post a picture? Is it GIA certified?

Just a side note. With the larger size (1.34) (warmer) J color and even some green undertones, it may be mistaken for moissanite. Surprised  As you’ve chosen (& are paying!) for a honest to goodness billion year old from the earth one of a kind (expensive) diamond, you probably wouldn’t want there to be any question that its anything less.

I am not familiar with Adiamor, good that they called you  to let you know, however clearly they think the green color could be an issue for a buyer..

Let us know what you decide and post a picture.

This sounds like they did not know until they pulled it so they’re letting you know before they ship. If they have a good return policy have them ship it and if you like it you’re all good if not ship it back. My sapphire was this way it was tagged “purple sapphire” and came in witha  lot of sapphires that were mainly color changers and purples. This one when they took it out of the vault they figured out was a color changer they didnt know the degree when they sent it but found out it wasnt fully tagged for what it was. We got a pretty good deal because the shift this stone has is actually very complete and it would have been more expensive had they known, as is it was one of the most expensive they had of these per carat due to clarity and depth of color.

@Miss Mauverick:  I agree! The bottom row is very pretty. The others have a touch too much yellow for my taste. Though I have to be honest, and say I would not have a green diamond as the center for my engagement ring. They’d make a gorgeous RHR though!

@AllRosesandSunshine:  just look at it in person and send it back if you don’t like it. Adiamor is wonderful with stuff like that.
