@katy13:  Cool! Is the cut quality the same in both rings? I don’t really see much yellow in the bottom stone, but it appears to be reflecting less white light than the top stone.

ETA: Which is which? They look nearly identical in size and I’m not size or color sensitive!

few questions before a legit comparison can be made:

1) are both certified by the same certification?

2) what are the other specs of each ring? (clarity, and cut rating)

3) have both been properly cleaned at the same time?

I have a D flawless too. I was able to see a stark difference when compared with other stones in the store. I could care less either way, but it’s what Fiance wanted to get.

I think it’s really difficult to make these kinds of comparisons fair.  Not all VS2 stones are created equal, some are more cloudy than others, which can affect how white/sparkly it is.  Also, were both stones cleaned the same way right before this test?   The G stone could have had a year of dirt/grime on it from day to day wear, for all we know.

The reason I’m saying this, is that usually a G color would not appear as yellow as in these pictures here.  I am a proud owner of a beautiful J-colored stone, and the only time I see any warmth in it is in direct sunlight.  It’s a beautiful stone, and never appears as dull and non-white as the G you’re showing here.

Anyway, just my 2 cents. One can save a ton of money by going with a G-colored stone or lower, and in my opinion, they look just as beautiful, even if sometimes showing a bit of color.  Here are some examples of my stone in different lighting, and one to show some color in it:

Natural indirect light:


Fluorescent light:


Direct sunlight:


Sparkling like a mothereffer in the car on a cloudy day:


Showing some color (indirect sunlight, I think):

And, OP, your ring is obviously made of GORGEOUS!  Lucky girl!  


And it is possible, that my stone would appear more yellow when directly next to a less colored stone, but you could never tell unless directly comparing them, I guess.

Lesser colored stones get a lot of flac here on the bee, I just wanted to show that they’re not so bad!

Cool pictures, OP! Yours is certainly bright bright white (well, colorless, but you know what I mean) in comparison. Seems like your mom’s has more of a grayish and/or brownish rather than yellowish undertone, which I know is fairly common too. You can tell better the tone of the color in person and from the side though.

My diamond is an F and I adore it, but I do love to see the pizzazz of a D!
