Sooooo a few weeks ago my fiancé and I ordered a ring to be custom made at a local jewelers. the diamond I picked was a hearts and arrows ideal G. At the time I loved it, but after reading what some people had to say about G colored diamonds has me worried that its going to look yellow. I stated my concern to my jeweler and he said it won’t look yellow, and the fact that were having blue diamonds next to it will cancel out any yellowness…but I’m still worried. Do any of you have G colored diamonds? Any regrets Or color issues?

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
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.

@romantical my diamond is a round brilliant cut ideal hearts and arrows, I picked it because it was the single most sparkley diamond I have seen…and I looked at diamonds for 3 months.

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!
