    I can spot it from a mile away

    I can but I don't think it's a big deal

    I can not

    There's colors in diamonds?

    I’m pretty good at detecting gradiants of color (as I work in creative) but honestly, I don’t see color in other people’s diamonds usually. If I see it, it’s because it’s super warm.

    In addition, rarely am I so close to someone else’s ring that I can really scrutinize it. DH and I noticed poorer cuts and to some degree, clarity, more than color.

    I don’t notice & don’t look for it either.

    If someone handed me their ring to look at, yeah I could probably see the color in it as I’m pretty color sensitive. But for regular everyday interactions? No. I don’t pay that much attention to other people’s jewelry.

    I do want fries and ice cream..separate though! I can never do dipping fries in milkshake.

    on the other hand, I can’t detect color either unlesitIt’s really obvious 🙂

    I’m often not paying attention to what people are wearing at all, but if I notice the ring, then yes. I’m very detail-sensitive, that’s why color and clarity were very important to me in my own diamond.

    I might notice, but that doesn’t mean much. 

    I think diamonds can be beautiful at any color. If you love your stone, then don’t second guess yourself.

    @minipenguin:  Yes, the reasoning I think is that cut and clarity (mostly cut) will cause your diamond to sparkle and refract light and when a diamond doesn’t do either, it’s either VERY, VERY dirty or a poorly cut stone with a lot of inclusions. FWIW, I have a stone with hearts and arrows and even when it’s super dirty, it still sparkles. So it’s more noticeable when a stone doesn’t sparkle then if it simply looked a little warmer. It’s easier to spot from a distance a large but not sparkly stone than a sparkly, but warm, stone.

    I don’t notice color, I do notice if they are clean or dirty though!

    On a side note, fries dipped in milk shakes has to be one of the best combos ever.

    I see yellow really easily in diamonds/moissanites. I probably look at peoples rings more than the average person though. I just think they are sooo pretty:) But yellow hints do turn me off.. Found that out pretty quick when I was e-ring shopping with DH. I doubt most people look at others rings that often to notice.
