I see the yellow too! hopefully it’s just the lighting.. but if you hadn’t posted the color I would have guessed it was an H color. And if you’re paying for an E I knot that’s not what you want to hear!
Good luck and update us!

I see a tinge of yellow, but I am more concerned about the light leakage. You can see the band right through the diamond, and a diamond shouldn’t look or act like a window. This kind of leakage will affect its light performance.

I have an E color GIA certified diamond, if the lighting is yellowish, or I am wearing yellow, it reflects yellow! Or if the lighting just REALLY sucks, it isn’t a very pretty color. I can see what you mean in the picture. I take it the ring isn’t on your finger yet, so you haven’t been able to explore different lighting? I should have taken a picture of my ring yesterday when I was wearing yellow. And my windows are huge in my house so I can’t take a picture of my ring under the nasty yellow lighting in my kitchen until it is dark out to show you that an E color isn’t always bright white and crystal clear. But here’s a picture of my E stone in it’s best lighting.

I can see what you mean. Gradings we done by people and people are fallible. If I’d had to guess I’d say it looks very near colourless, more a G? Could just be reflecting yellow from the surrounds though. Lovely either way, no one but you will think about it once, let alone twice

My D can look yellow in certain lighting – usually pub toilets!

I do see what you mean. I have an “E” and I agree it can occasionally look yellow in poor lighting. However, in white lights or sunshine, it is the sparkliest ring I’ve ever seen!

Agree with PPs that have said so much depends on the lighting. Diamonds do amazing things with light, but what that means is that they also reflect ugly yellowy lighting.
Also agree that grading is subjective and all stones are different, so variation within a grade (even if ever so slight) is to be expected.
And also agree that fancy cuts show more color.
Look at me, I’m just so agreeable today!

Thanks for all the advice.
We did go back and the jeweller let us take the ring into the sunlight to be sure. It sparkled bright and white so he got it!!!
A month later I’m engaged!
Everday I love my ring more and more!!
