It depends on how color sensitive you are and also the cut. An ideal cut diamond will show much less color than a cut grade of “good” or less. I’m pretty color sensitive and I think I can tell a difference with a D and a G side by side but mounted you shouldn’t see color. If you can, it’s probably not an ideal cut, GIA/AGS certified G.

My stones are F-G but no, they look bright sparkling white to me! I am so happy with the colour.

My sidestones are a G and my center stone is a J and I NEVER see any tint of yellow.

I have solitaire stones in D, G and H colours. My engagement ring is a 1ct princess cut G, VVSI, GIA cert stone and it looks stunning. I have never seen any colour in it. I also have a RHR which has a .7ct RB D colour VVSI and it also looks stunning. I do notice more sparkle from my RB compared to my ering however I think this is mostly down to the cut. I also have an H colour, VVSI .70 solitaire in a pendant. If I put the H next to the D and G yes I can see the warmth in the necklace stone but it’s not much and I couldn’t tell if it wasn’t next to the other two stones. I say, enjoy your lovely ring!!

Nope! No white here in my G. It looks so white sometimes we joke it looks fake.

Most people can see no warmth in a G stone. If they can, it is genreally only next to a higher coloured diamond where they can see it. I have an I coloured stone set in YG and it faces up very white. Because of the metal colour, it wouldn’t make a whole lot of sense for me to go a lot higher in colour, although in white metal I might not go higher than an H (although I’ve seen excellent cut Js look white in white metal, too).
If I were you, I would have absolutely no concern over a G coloured stone whatsover. If the cut is good, it will look very, very white.

I can see a little warmth in my F (ideal cut round), but it’s at my point of comfort (price/color trade-off), because I just barely see it.

my stone is a G (GIA graded – there are differences between the different labs and their color grades, GIA and AGS tend to be more “strict”), and I can see very slight warmth in it, but I have a pretty keen sense for that sort of thing. My stone is also set in unplated WG, so that might make it look slightly warmer also

If you have a solitaire and a white setting (gold, platinum or palladium), you really won’t see any color until you get to J-K. If you have a halo with E-stones for example and a J center stone, you draw attention to the difference. Same with stones in the wedding band.

@MrsRose7: it depends on “who” appraised it as a G. GIA is the standard-the most respected. Tiffany appraises their own rings & is on par wGia & may err on the side of caution (ie if between e & F, they may call it F) according to what I’ve read on Pricescope.
EGL, IGI have far looser standards and what they call a “G” may actually be “J” per GIA standards. Jewelry stores in the US are allowed to be deliberately dishonest by 1 step (ie calling something an s12 instead of an I1 or J color instead of K) when selling their inventory!-saw that on Pricescope too..
Thus, your mileage may vary. I have a G tiffany & Co and against my D-E engagement ring, there is no discernable color difference.I know there has to be some though or it wouldn’t be a “G”.

I have a G diamond and I don’t see any warmth unless I place it against a bright white piece of paper. The paper as seen through the diamond is only a tiny bit warmer than the rest of the paper.
