EGL says it’s a S-T in color. GIA labels it as a light fancy yellow. Cushion. 1.5ct. It looks cream outside of a setting and in a setting it looks yellow. And ditto pricescope. That’s where I get my colored stone porn. 😉

My solitaire is a J, or at least that is what they said when we bought it.  I am thinking about having it reappraised because the color seems much lighter to me.

@MrsFuzzyFace: It’s hard to tell from pics, but that looks more like a G color to me.

My ring is a K in colour…..(will post a pic later), but i think you may be right about yours being brighter, mine is a much warmer colour than yours but supposedly only 1 grade away…

I dont know if mine is actually a K or darker, but the appraisal certificate states its a K. Whatever it is, i wouldn’t change it for the world, i love that its a warm colour.

@MrsFuzzyFace: It might be the cut that makes it looke so good?

My wedding band appraised as J, and the halo stones are g… I don’t get it…

you really can’t tell these things from pictures.  Lighting etc will affect how it comes out.  Best way is to go to various stores (better to go to a jewelery district as opposed to a chain store like Kay) and see those stones in person.  Plus, the clarity and cut will affect how warm or not it looks.

My diamond is an M! We decided to go lower on the color scale to get the largest bang for his buck. Personally I think all of the colors on the diamond scale are beautiful, so it was an easy decision to look at warmer colors.

There are a few things about this diamond that make it appear a little whiter, too. First, it is graded by GIA, which, along with AGS, is one of the strictest labs when it comes to color. Another lab like EGL might have called this a J or K diamond. Second, this stone has medium blue fluorescence, which helps it appear whiter in some lighting. And finally, it has an excellent cut and it’s a round stone. Diamonds tend to show their body color more in fancy shapes and when the cut quality is not as good.

That’s not to say this looks like a perfectly colorless diamond, not at all! I can definitely see its tint, but I love that about it. It seems to have more dimension to me, and the colors it throws off when light hits it are amazing!

I have a J colored August Vintage Cushion from Good Old Gold. The cut is so spectacular that it looks nowhere near a J 🙂 I love my little bauble!

This picture has a weird reflection going on in the middle, but you can tell the true color from looking at the outer edges of the diamond 🙂
