You should really see them in person, photos really don’t show base color well at all.

Depending how the person took the photo it could look snow white or butter yellow… it is neither. Go to a jeweler and browse. It’s fun to do, anyway.

PS. I personally would hint that I wouldn’t mind a smaller size (that’s very LARGE!) for a whiter color. VVS2 is very nice though!

Make sure you have the best cut! That is the most important. Here is my GIA 3x excellent I/VS1. 0,68 crts on a size 7,5 finger.

@Ohhavok:  It depends how color sensitive you are. I have H earrings and I can’t see any trace of color.

I is still in the near colorless range.

Round brilliants, especially if they’re well cut, are really good at hiding color because of all the facets.

I wouldn’t worry.

We’re talking about possibly the tiniest trace of warmth… not any kind of yellowish color.

I don’t think you’ll have any issues with the whiteness of an I

Unless you are extraordinarily color-sensitive, you won’t see yellow in an I colored round brilliant. In fact, Ira Weissman from Truth About Diamonds says to shoot for H-J in a round to be set in platinum because if you buy anything higher than an H, you’re paying for a feature you can’t appreciate. He discusses it more here.

There’s also an amusing video in which he shows people in Times Square a $5,000 H/SI2 and a $13,000 G/VVS2, both set in rings, and nobody can tell the difference.

You should rest assured that you’ll have a gorgeous (and very generously sized!) stone.

I have a 1 carat J color SI2 ideal cut stone.  I cant see any yellow or inclusions and it looks white and bright!

@Ohhavok:  You’re welcome! I bet that website saved my Fiance some serious money.

Can’t wait to see the ring when you get it!

Yeah I wouldn’t be worried about an I color too much. I personally would prefer VS1-2 clarity and maybe G or H color, just because I don’t believe in paying for VVS clarity because you literally cannot see the difference, whereas you may be able to discern a color difference. You could check out some I colored diamonds yourself to see how you feel.
