Does anyone love stones with a little warmth color in them?
From reading past posts it would seem warmth in stones is not popular. But, I truely think it gives the stone some depth. My stone has some warmth to it and I do feel and have always felt it makes the stone look richer. The perfect colored white stones I’m not that crazy about because they don’t have that warmth.
Does anyone else like stone that are warmer colored?
Does any have a yellow stone they would like to share pictures of?
I’m a huge fan of yellow stones!

I’m not a huge fan of yellow stones because my mom’s birthstone is citrine & she always hated it. Like literally remarked how ugly it was whenever we were looking at jewelry. So it kind was a preference “embedded” in me at a young age.
Warmer diamonds, I personally don’t like (anything below an H) but I don’t mind G-H colors as long as they’re an excellent cut and sparkle. I am not bashing on anyone who chooses a warmer diamond tho– I know some people enjoy them and it’s a personal preference. 🙂
I do however really like the warmness of the “pinker” stones like pinky-brown diamonds and morganite set in rose gold. So pretty! But a totally different look than near colorless diamonds in white gold/plat.

chica95110: I love warmer stones! I have a three row anniversary band that was my mom’s (the ring is around 40 yrs old now) and all the stones are warm. it’s not that noticeable, but it in certain lights,you can see a slight yellow. I love it! I also got a new ring for my 5 year anniversary and it it an OEC diamond with a very warm hue (my guess is I or J color??). Again, not too noticeable, only in certain lights. If the cut and clarity is good,warm diamonds look beautiful!

I love OEC and OMC diamonds and they tend to have more color to them. I really like a bit of color in a stone. Sadly FI picked out a brandy new sparkling white stone with good intentions.

I actually find myself very fond of yellow stones in general. For example I even like canary yellow stones. And yellow is a very neutral color. I just really like it.

I once tried on a beautiful canary yellow diamond ring set in yellow gold, and it was so beautiful, I’ve been a huge fan of yellow stones ever since.

Mine is a k, typically I can’t see any warmth, but in certain lighting I can. Somebody asked me at the gym if it was a yellow diamond. But normally it looks just like the halo diamonds. I actually love warm diamonds. I have a huge champagne oval pinned for future reference for the hubby lol.

I prefer warmer stones, and got an GIA graded H colour stone. I was very happy with it initially, but I think the ideal cut and round brilliant shape take away from the warmth of an H. I saw an H-colour modified cushion in store that was much warmer than my stone, and it was very beautiful. I would looooove a K-L-M graded diamond, but the trade in policy on my stone requires us to spend double the original amount for an upgrade, so that’s not happening anytime soon.
I get that warmer diamonds are less desirable based on diamond value and marketing, and I’m glad since it equals savings for when I do upgrade!

I never thought I would love warm stone, but it’s probably because my family has always coveted clear stones. However, my SO has inherited a transitional cut stone from the 1920s that has some warmth to it. We are getting it GIA graded this week but it’s definitely in the K-L-M range. It has so much character and depth. I can’t wait until the SO gets it finished and finally proposes. I want to wear that puppy!

I own a canary diamond. i believe it is an intense yellow which is one step away from a vivid yellow.

I have an heirloom rhr which is probbaly closer to a K-M. I never realized it was warm until I got my engagement ring (E colored diamond).

I love them. My OEC is about a K in color. It faces up pretty white which is nice but does have gorgeous buttery creamy coloring in some lighting. I really only like this coloring with antique cut stones though.

chica95110: I love the warmer/ yellow tint. You are so right, it adds depth and something about them take my breath away.
