It depends on how “white” the white diamond is and how “yellow” the yellow diamond is. The same goes for any other coloured diamond. The more vivid the colour the stone is (including white), the rarer it is and the more valuable it becomes. The white diamonds you find in rings tend to have a hint of yellow in them – once you take them away from the bright lights in the store!

Have a good look around, you might find a paler yellow that you love at a more reasonable price.

Fancy colored diamonds (yellow, pink, etc) do cost significantly more than white/clear diamonds.

However, if you go really low on the color scale of a clear/white diamond they can have a yellow tinge but not the vibrant canary diamond color.

Here’s a site where you can browse different colored diamonds and their prices. With colored diamonds though I’d really want to see them in person before making a purchase if at all possible.

If you get a diamond on the X, Y, Z end of a diamond color instead of a “fancy” variety or a canary, you can get a nice lemony color without the premium.
