For my wedding ring I prefer white, but really that’s because it goes with everything I wear. lol. I do love vivid colored diamonds. I would not mind a red diamond. If I were to get any other color I would say a red colored diamond would be it. But I love my White diamond.

I love them, but I love colour. Personally, I would either pick a colour that I know that I will not tire of, and/or that goes with most things.

yellow are so much more rare, i peronally love them! they are also pricier because of it…diamonds as awesome as they are, are really just a marked up commodity, really not rare at all.  google it, and ugh its shockingly sad!

I tend to only like the natural light pink or the canary yellow ones. I’m not a fan of blue diamonds, and definitely not the heat treated type. I did recently see a picture of the light blue Amora Gems that have come out, and they’re beautiful! I’d love to have one of those.

I fell in love with a gorgeous salmon-pink diamond ring on display at The Waldorf Hotel in NYC many moons ago.   i think colored diamonds, esepecially the pink ones, are just gorgeous.  The canary ones are pretty too, but dont work with my skin tone, so I’ll never get one. They are stunning though.

Personally, I wanted a yellow diamond in my e-ring, but SO refused to buy one.  He said he wanted something classic that would stand the “test of time.”  He feels colored stones are “a fad,” blah blah …. don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the e-ring SO picked but I would have equally liked one I had my eye on that had a canary yellow diamond.

I like pink and champagne diamonds; since in general yellow does not look good with my skin, I wouldn’t go for a yellow one personally, but I’ve seen gorgeous yellow diamonds.

Haha that sounds like my FI, mine says they look like glass to him!  Which is why he actually prefers the colored ones, works for me;)

I’m not a fan of yellow on my skin at all. Otherwise any color would be pretty. For an engagement or wedding ring I want colorless tho, as it matches everything

I love pale blue and pink diamonds. I wish they were in the realms of affordability!

I love colored diamonds. I feel if it is something you love and you won’t get tired of it, then I say go for it. My e-ring is white diamonds, but I’m flanking each side with matching black diamond wedding bands!! I’m super excited to get to wear them. The best part is everyone looks at my e-ring as “normal” just wait til I get to wear the bands! I am curious on everyone’s reaction to the set!

I love colored diamonds! I think of anything that “cheapens” them, it’s the setting. Even a beautiful stone will look trashy in a gaudy setting. But in general, the combination of color and sparkle are lovely!
