    I personally would go with an I or higher! But if you don’t mind the color then no one else will notice, I promise!!!

    You realize that I and J are right next to each other in the alphabet, right?  😛  I don’t think it will made a lick of difference.  I’d worry more about the cut than the colour any day!

    I would go down in clarity and up in color. Have an I center stone with VS2 or VS1 clarity. I would be very very surprised if you could tell the difference between VS1, VS2, and VVS2. I wouldn’t be that surprised if you could tell the center stone is one color warmer than the sidestones though.

    unless the center stone is closer to a carat, i dont think you will notice such a slight color difference. sounds perfect!

    @kansas_nurse:  There isn’t much difference unless you are color sensitive like me. I can see color in G or H colored diamonds (not that it’s a bad thing). Keep in mind that the larger the diamond the more noticable color and flaws are. Also a well cut diamond of any shape will hide flaws and color much better.

    @asscherlover:  ITA but I would go all the way to Sl1 as long as it is eye clean.

    I think you’ll be fine! I and J are not that dissimilar at all. They are right next to each other in the “nearly colorless” category.

    Just FYI, I have a J .52 center stone next to I+ accent stones. The accents are so small (similar to the stones on your ring I believe), they don’t even reflect the light well enough for it to make a difference. I can only see a little color in the center stone in my yellow kitchen light – in sunlight, shade, florescent light, ANYTHING else it looks whiter than whiter than white.

    IM about to give you the best advice you are going to get.  If you want to get a larger stone, but it is an I/J color, set it in NOT white gold, but yellow gold.  I’m rocking a HUGE rock (bigger than 2 carots) and I can barely tell that the color has a bit of “warmth”  but if it was set in yellow gold instead of white gold I bet I wouldnt be able to see it at all.  Pic to follow if I can figure it out…

    No, you will not be able to tell. My e-ring setting, center stone and wedding band all have slightly different specs and they all match perfectly.
