It’s difficult to tell but my guess is G.

I’d say G, H. It looks pretty clear and its a gorgeous ring!

Ah, great. Cool In GIA terms, however, that means it’s 1 to 2 grades lower, which would mean in all likelihood it’s really an H or even I. Nonetheless, it looks great on your finger. Congrats!

It really is impossible to tell in a photo.

@canarydiamond:  I love reading anything you post because your avatar suggests that you are always saying it with a smile. 🙂

but OP I agree you can’t really tell off of a photo. Gorgeous stone though!

I’d say H.  It also depends if your stone was graded loose or in the setting. When loose, diamonds are graded on color upside down.  Very pretty though!

Can you take it off your hand and place it on a piece of white paper? Take a photo of it from the side or underneath the diamond. That’s the closest way anyone can make a guestimate from a photo. 

What EGL lab graded it? International can be off by up to 9 grades. EGL USA is more strict, but only within the last year or two when they got a lot of flack and got in trouble for screwing around.
