I believe the cut makes a big difference on the appearance of colour, because the cut is what allows the light to come through the diamond and so the better the cut, the brighter and whiter the diamond appears 🙂

Also, I love your ring!

Wow, sounds like a terrible first experience. Crazy to think they would even get the carat incorrect, seeing as that is an objective factor. Was the 1.04 a total weight of your band plus the center stone? 

Cut is known to enhance the stone’s appearance more than other factors. It can really enhance color and hide a lot of imperfections. I’m glad everything got sorted out for you. Your ring is gorgeous!

If buying a non cert’d stone, you are really depending on the knowledge of the person selling it.  And that can really vary.  My guess is is that the first stone was “graded” very liberally in all areas.  The ct weight is especially concerning, as they literally weigh them.  There is no guessing. So being off like that is just plain lying.

amndax :  that is seriously crazy! I feel like everyone (jewelers/jewelry stores especially) know that carat is based on weight, not appearance! I’m seriously in love with your ring. My SO and I are buying a ring in the upcoming weeks, I’ve always had my eye set on a classic 6 prong round solitaire, but I’ve been seeing so many amazing ovals, I’m thinking of going with that instead. So elegant!
