It looks dull? Do you have a better picture?

it could be classified as a yellow diamond but it seems really cloudy- like any diamonds, cloudier stones are less desirable.

that does not appear to be fancy yellow, but rather a diamond in the S-Z color range, fancy yellow is bright and pure and vivid. No brown.

@debbieotoole: I almost complimented someone on the board yesterday for their yellow diamond, but I read a bit more and they said it was a J color. I would have been mortified.

How many carats is it and how much did they pay?

@debbieotoole:  I can definitely see the yellow, but it’s not the best pic so hard to tell.

There are different grades of yellow diamonds… it’s a scale.

I posted a pic to help illustrate.

It could be fancy light yellow, or possibly still within the letters range. Sometimes diamonds that are on the lower end of the alphabet are sold as yellow diamonds, but at a discount since fancy yellows start to get up there in price.

@debbieotoole:  I also looked online at their site and couldn’t find the ring, nor any info on the quality of diamonds in the ring.

@debbieotoole:  if it’s a ‘real’ fancy yellow then that’s a good price for a shop price (my local jeweller has a half carat fancy yellow for £5k, a 1 carat with halo for £10k). But the stone you’re showing doesn’t look ‘canary’ yellow, I’m wondering if its towards the deep spectrum which makes the yellow dark and less attractive. It’s still ‘fancy’ but ‘fancy deep yellow’ wouldn’t be as desirable. It does look more yellow than say a w but it could also be the lighting…

@debbieotoole:  they’ve also made the mistake (as I’ve seen a lot in high street jewellers) of not setting the stone in a yellow gold basket. People who buy a coloured stone want to make the most of the colour and for yellows that means a yellow gold basket.

The lighting is really bad but I would still call that a fancy yellow diamond. They aren’t all canary yellow.
