    I must be dumb… I see no difference. I would not spend money on a difference that slight

    @Heidibrooke:  I don’t like the warmth. It looks a little too yellow for my taste.

    I’ll start off by saying that I think both are beautiful, however I personally like a little warmth in diamonds. Also in the photos of both diamonds on your hand the colour difference isn’t as noticeable as on the white background. I also prefer the shape of the second one.

    I generally like the larger one, not for size but for the overall look of it versus the smaller stone.

    Tough decision! I like the shape of the new one, and of course I like the size! But, I’m not crazy about the warmth…

    I don’t like warm color diamond. It really shows in couple photos. I am glad you decided on the cooler stone

    Personally, I don’t care about the warmth but I’d still go with the smaller diamond because I prefer the shape. It looks more feminine to me somehow.

    @Heidibrooke:  If you prefer cooler stones- I am telling you- stick with the G.  Once you have had it past the return perdiod, you won’t think twice about it.

    My first ering, the stone was whiter.  My for-real ering- it’s a J.  But I like the warmth, plus my band is yellow gold- so they blend nicely together.  It’s not like my stone is yellow is looks white, of course- but for example, when I am in my darker salmon colored bathroom, my stone become very warm, IMO.  My old stone was only an H-but it was super notoceable! So going from a G to an I- if you’re on the fence with the warmth, you will regret that, especially because you will notice it in your larger stone.  Even though you know you like larger- bigger isn’t always better if there’s a quality about the BIG that doesn’t suite you perfectly- and color isn’t like an inclusion (inclusions are small, usually only seen by the wearer, and only when they bother to look)- warmth is in your face, baby!  (I’m trying to look at the facts and break it down if it were me who had to decide- and from what you’ve told me about you, and what we know about your stones…..stay with the G- because it fits you)


    And I will tell you- your I has warmth (I’d be all over that haha)– keep the G- and if you’re dying for more finger coverage down the road, think about a cool halo (unless you’re not into that)- or just be super pumped about your super white super awesome oval.

    I love the bigger one. I’m not sure why I like it so much more than the other..there’s just something simpler about the setting and the warmth of the diamond I love (which is weird because I normally like whiter stones) but I say go with the bigger one (:

    I think it only looks warm because you are comparing it to a G.

    My diamond is an H, and my eternity band is an H, and they look super-white.

    I would absolutely go for the bigger stone, no questions asked.

    TBH they look soooooooo similar in size, I would just go for the one with better clarity and colour stats. The warmth of the larger one looks very apparent, which is something I would care about.

    @Heidibrooke:  I am going to speak very severly to you now, so fair warning.

    That oval ring you have is perfection. STOP looking at others. Just stop it.

    Don’t you remember when I told you to get that oval, it is perfect? Why do you think I’m wrong????!!!!!!

    hahahahaha but yeah, cut it out!

    Or sweet jesus just send me the pretty ring, already. You don’t deserve it.  🙂
