an F colour should be near colourless.  did they ask you this in person?? 

you’re bottom pic looks yellow b/c it is picking up the colour from the flowers.

Wow!! Your ring is gorgeous!!!!!! That is all. Lol seriously though don’t let it bug you I think everyone’s rings can pick up different colors in different lighting!

Occassionally I see the yellow in my diamond… it doesn’t bother me at all! Unfortunately I don’t have any pics of it looking yellow…

Isn’t that in the colourless range? strange… I doubt they meant it in a negative way maybe they liked the warmth of the colour?

My center diamond is F color as well and I never see yellow tint it in on whatever lighting.

Mine is F, and I can only ever see warmth in it through the side of the table while in the car, lol.  Is yours GIA graded?  Different labs have different grading, so what EGL, for example, says is F, the GIA will often say is H.

Maybe because the small stones always look much whiter, even if they are similarly graded? 

Anyway, that’s a rude question. I have an L colored diamond (LOVE & prefer the warmth) & no one’s asked me if it’s a yellow diamond. They just comment that it’s lovely, and move on.

An F rated by who? GIA or another gem certifier? It makes a difference…

F should be very colorless and yellow should be completely unnoticable except as compared to a D or an E…

If its not a GIA, then an F rated by EGLS or anotehr institution may be equivalent to an H or an I which will have color

Your ring is beautiful, I like warmer diamonds, but it all depends who said it was an F…

Don’t quote me on this, but I remember reading a few places that very well cut and clear diamonds often pick up and reflect the colors around them, so that could be it, maybe?

mine’s a G and it does not look yellow at all…..so I can’t imagine an F looking like that…..I’ve SEEN yellow diamonds…mine is not one of them, and neither is yours (not that there’s anything wrong with that, if that’s whta you prefer)

I know that D-F is colorless, so you shouldn’t see yellow tint in it at all.  Mine is an E and I never see yellow.

Mine occasionally looks ‘warm’, but I’ve definitely noticed that it depends on what I’m wearing – It’s an I and cut very very well……I chose it for the fact that it was so pretty!

Mine is graded as between H and I on my appraisal, and it does not look yellow. In fact, when my friend who is the manager of a jewelry store and is diamond certified looked at it under the scope, he said it looked more like a G or even an F. Anyway, I actually prefer how warmer diamonds look. I think your diamond is really beautiful.

Well, it does look yellow next to the flowers, but I would take that to mean that your diamond is so clear and cut so well that it reflects other colors around it really nicely. So if you were next to something yellow when asked, it makes sense, even if it is a rude question. Your diamond isn’t yellow at all in the first picture! But your diamond is beautiful and I actually think it’s great when they reflect other colors 🙂
