heres my G with a J side by side

i don’t see much of a colour difference, more so the cut (e-ring is signature ideal, the middle finger one is a very good, and it also has a slightly lower clarity, but it’s almost twice as big in carat weight so…)

My e-ring center stone is F, and the stones in my band are G’s and H’s.  I think from D-G, maybe H you won’t see a difference in color.  Color is actually one of the least important factors, cut is the main thing.  If it’s well cut, it will show and refract the light.  if it’s poorly cut, it will look dim and not as bright.  But as PP’s said, you really need to try them on in person and see what you like with the different metals.

Mine is about an I…I haven’t had it formally appraised as it was passed down to me. This is just what my DH’s dad said stat wise. However, it has very good clarity and it extremely sparkley. The side diamonds are HOF and when they are all clean, the center doesn’t look out of place at all.

Mine’s an F set in 14K White Gold. Granted, this picture was taken in a bathroom (hey, they have the best lighting!) and with an iPhone, but you get the idea. 😉

F, SI1, Excellent Cut, White gold and hubby’s is polished tungsten carbide.

I find it is always bright, clean and clear looking.  No hint of yellow at all.  It’s fire and brillance is fantastic…always sprakles the colors of the rainbow.

But I do agree that you need to see them in person.  My husband worked with the gemologist as she brought in 3 diamonds and made this one work in our budget as it was significantly prettier in person than the others.

mine’s a cushion cut I color, VVS2. The cushion, like the asscher, retains color. I can see a hint of yellow in some lights. I didn’t really mind the colors as I like warm diamonds as well.

My AGS 000 J colored “A Cut Above” H&A diamond.

Better cut hides more color, so diamonds face up whiter! Ideal cut diamonds look whiter, brighter, and bigger overall.

I found this series of videos super helpful in helping to identify which color grades I was comfortable with:
