I have a G centerstone. It’s never looked yellow to me. Are you having it set in white gold/platinum or yellow gold?

I have a G as well, looks beautifully crystal clear!

I almost had a G for my ering and I’ve had G stones in other rings (all WG). IMO, it doesn’t look yellow and since you are not setting it next to D/E colored stones, you will be fine.

P.S. I have a H&A cushion and I love it! Congrats on your H&A round!

@Minirayray:  Mine is an heirloom, but the jeweler estimated it to be a G. It is beautiful and I have never noticed a hint of color!

I would trust your jeweler’s words.  After all, he’s the one that’s going to be liable if you ultimately reject the ring Wink

I wouldn’t be concerned with a G-color.  I have an H-color stone and it always looks sparkling white to me.  But then again, I have a round brilliant and excellent cut diamond which I heard both really help with the overall look of the diamond.  What shape diamond are you getting?  If you’re concerned about getting a really white diamond, I wouldn’t go below an H.

Oh, and my side stones are F-color by the way.  I really can’t tell the difference

Nope, there should really not be any yellow unless you have like Superwoman vision. The ideal cut of your H&A should be able to mask any tint of yellow better than an average-cut stone. Even then your stone is only a G and there should be almost no yellow to begin with. I have a J color H&A and it only has the slightest warm tint at certain angles or when put up against a white backdrop. I dont think you need to worry.

Is it a GIA-graded G? I think those are generally pretty nice. Mine’s an F and I have to really, really look to see the hint of warmth (and I am very detail-oriented). G is only one grade below… I wouldn’t call it yellow-looking. I think it’s categorized as “almost colorless” and that is accurate. It’ll look pretty white most of the time.

Mine is an H and doesn’t look yellow to me. I’d think your G would be just fine.

Mine’s an H and the side stones are D.  In this picture you can maybe see a tiny bit of warmth?  I’ve never noticed it in real life though – it just looks super white and sparkly.  I wouldn’t worry  :)

Sorry this is so freaking huge!
