I have a J and I love it. The only times I’ve felt insecurity is after spending too much time here!

Your ring and stone are BEAUTIFUL!  Wear it proudly!

I am patiently waiting for my ring to come in! Boyfriend & I finally finished designing it & are waiting for our trusted family jeweler to call so he can pick it up! When we first started looking, I always thought I wanted a perfect color, perfect clarity, as big as we could afford, etc. But after realizing diamonds are ridiculously expensive, we ended up getting a 1.41 ct cushion cut, very good cut, halo, H color, SI1 clarity. Our jeweler (who we trust 200%) kept saying over & over again, you really do not notice color unless there’s a MAJOR difference & you literally line up the diamonds side by side. Even then it may be hard to differentiate. He kept telling me, don’t be concerned with color or clarity, go with the ring you fall in love with. To the naked eye you really do not notice imperfections of color differences. Go with your heart & gut – do not worry what everyone else thinks.

I agree with other posters: It’s your ring, if you love it then keep it! However, you don’t sound totally sold on it. I guess you’ll just have to decide which of the Cs is most important to you. I clearly don’t know your friends, but I’ve noticed that almost all of my friends have no clue about anything other than size of a diamond, and after the initial first look, nobody stares at rings enough to notice anything. If you’re color sensitive, just make sure you stay with an excellent cut round brilliant, they hide color the best ๐Ÿ™‚

My round brilliant is an I color.  However, it’s a XXX and certified by GIA. It also has slight fluorescence. I’ve had people ask me if it is a D color.  ๐Ÿ™‚

On overcast days, it looks kind of gray… and maybe the slightest tinge of yellow.  I think I’m just super critical and can notice it because I KNOW about its color grade.  ๐Ÿ™‚

I love all diamonds but choose a warmer stone for my e-ring!  Mine is a GIA L-faint brown and my Boyfriend or Best Friend doesnt see any color in it either!  Next to other diamonds that I have that are D-color it almost looks fancy but on its own I just cant stop looking at it and looks very white.  It changes colors depending on lighting and I love it even more.  It also sparkles like crazy because of the cut and polish.  Im sure I will get some comments about it being poor quality or not colorless but I still love it.  

I doubt anyone will notice the color in your solitare and your friends will not care as much as you do about it.  Also….you might want to try another J. You may have just got one that has more warmth than usual.  What matteres is if you like it.  If you were not worried about what people think would you love the diamond?

Aweds89:  my stone is H is color and it’s not noticeable unless you really put it up to the light and look at it. I don’t mind a little yello at all. It’s something to use to recognize my diamond.

OP I see no warmth – your stone looks beautiful! I have an I color diamond and I have ZERO regrets! Sure, in some lights it occassionally shows a hint of warmness, but the other 97% of the time it looks perfect and we saved thousands by going with a slightly lower color.

Mine is an I and occasionally I see some color when i look from the side, but never from the top. I wanted a certain size so I chose an “I” rather than higher color to get the size I wanted. 

I personally find J’s to show too much color for me though.

My diamond is a J and I always think it looks very white! An excellent cut really helps.

My ering is an I color. I really dont think it’s that different that anyone would notice if you don’t tell them. I also think that the nature of a diamond is to reflect a rainbow of colors so unless it’s stationary in warm light you’re always going to see a rainbow.
