My center stone is a .8 carat princess G color VVS2 clarity. What color grades are you debating between and what kind of ring if you don’t mind sharing 🙂

1ct princess cut GIA ideal cut g color excellent polish/symmetry vsi1 in 14k rose gold with g color diamond halo .12ctw size 7. It is pretty white most of the time but does show some warmth in certain lighting, which I love a bit of warmth. If I were to buy a diamond today I’d go with an m or lower 😍 Are you looking at the g range for your diamond?

I have a couple G diamonds.  My e-ring is a G (2.73ct 9.03mm GIA G VS2) and the center stone of my 3 stone is a G (1.01ct 6.4mm GIA G VS2).  Both are very white and I don’t see any tint.  Some pics below, including a shot showing both next to my 2ctw +/- studs which are a GIA H and I.  GIA is known to be the most strict when it comes to grading, so a G as graded by other labs like IGI, etc. will likely have more tint.  A lot of shapes show more tint vs. modern rounds too, so a G oval will likely have more tint vs. a G round. Not sure what size and shape you are looking at, but tint becomes more evident with size.  For rounds at around 1ct and under, H – I as graded by GIA is usually plenty white to most people except those who are very color sensitive. HTH!

I’m no expert but oval usually shows more tint than round? If you really color sensitive and wants white crisp looks, then better go with F especially in that size!

I have a small heart that are D but picks up color very easily and sometimes makes me crazy lol. But I also have L oval that I love very much cause I’m expecting it to be yellow.

I’ve never noticed a tint with my G.

I’ve never noticed a tint with mine either. The second photo I posted was taken in a room with tan walls and only my bedside lamp was on with a tan shade on it and it still looks white to me. I personally don’t think that going up to the colorless is worth the difference in price. I say save the money for the wedding/honeymoon!

Are you looking at a round brilliant or a fancy shape? Rounds hide color very well. I have aK and an L and they’re very white (to me) in most lighting.

My round lab diamond is a G. I don’t notice a tint but I’m also not an expert. I am happy with it though 🙂
