    Changed my mind — I’d say at least I.

    We say this all the time here, but you cannot accurately color grade from pictures. You can make a D look yellow and a K look white depending on the photo. 

    Just for the sake of playing along, I would guess J.

    @Heidibrooke:  I was thinking F or G, but I admit that it is hard for me to tell in photos compared to in person.

    @BlondeMissMolly:  Exactly- my own ring can look very different in photos I take based on the lighting, background colors, etc.

    @BlondeMissMolly:  +1. You can’t tell unless you compare it to another diamond. Just to play along, I’d guess I.

    @Heidibrooke:  I can see you’re new, and didn’t mean to sound snarky. I just meant, at the risk of sounding like a broken record…because I’m sure other bees have read me say that before!

    Absolutely gorgeous! I’d say somewhere between F and H. My first thoughts were G bc my princess is a G in color and mine looks pretty close to this!

    On my monitor your diamond looks very white, except for picture 6 where there is more sunlight and the diamond looks a bit warmer.  Since color grading is done with the diamond “upside down”, I’m going to go with I-J.

    It’s a beautiful diamond BTW!

    @Heidibrooke:  Only in #6 does it look warm. E is my guess. 🙂 I’ll take a chance!
