First of all, you need to go see it in person, but if they are the same clarity and ct weight, the I color with no fuorescence is a much easier resale in the future.  I love my K color, it has no fluorescence to it, and it still doesn’t look yellow, but if you are offered this kind of a choice, as long as the J is medium or faint blue you should consider it, but strong or very strong blue and you’re looking at a big problem down the line.

Mine is only a .81 carat centre stone, but it is J in colour. Ideal cut, no fluorescence.

The J stone looks really florecent to me, very unnatural but maybe its a bad picture. Personally if it was me i would go for the I with no florecent, i think i would rather a warmer color diamond than a diamond that looks blueish.

@shamrock1228:  There are several threads on here with J colored stones. 

J colored Diamonds

To J or not to J?!? (Show me your J-Rings)

Here’s one about different color side stones

Is your center stone a different color than your halo halo halo? 🙂

There are lots of beautiful J colored stones. J also falls into the near colorless range so it should not put off much yellow anyway. 

Here is about flouresecence

i would go with the I for resale/appraisal purposes as long as you like how it looks. one whole color grade will be worth more later on.
