    Nope. Never ever ever noticed a diamonds colour. Only its sparkle and size. Mine is a K and i even asked my mom if she noticed a different between my e-diamond and my wedding ring which i think has G-H diamonds.  She said nope. 

    Edit: i have a very good cut k coloured radiant. The only time it has a bit of a yellow tinge is sometimes in direct sunlight. Most people only notice the sparkle. And i dont notice it having yellow hints much at all anymore.

    Yes, but I don’t look for it. I’m extremely color sensitive, so if someone has their ring in my face and it has color, I will notice.

    At a glance (i.e. someone walking by me) I don’t even notice other people’s jewelry; but if someone shows me their ring, I definitely notice the color (I’m pretty color sensitive).  I don’t think they’re any less beautiful than a D colored stoned though.

    The only one I’ve noticed is my friend’s ring because she got engaged just before me.  I don’t really notice color, mine is an “I” and she claims hers is a “D”.  The only difference between them that I see other than hers is larger is that hers looks cloudy to me.  I don’t know if it’s because of the cut (mine is princess, hers is radiant), but her ring, although beautiful, just doesn’t sparkle to me.

    Maybe if its the ring of a close friend and I’m really looking, but no – they all look good to me if I’m just glancing around.

    I would definitely notice the over-all sparkle and size of a stone before I would notice the color.

    My stone is a J, so clearly warmth is no big deal to me.

    And honestly, I’m rarely in a position that I’m so close to somebodies ring to think that I can detect color, but then again I don’t mind it so maybe thats why I’m not looking.

    All I really notice about others jewelry is sparkle, if its sparkly that is. I also went through this with my ring, I have a J, at first when I got it I thought it was really white but the longer I had it the more warmth I could see in it. I also discovered that I really love warm stones and not really really white ones, but it still bugged me that others may think my ring was “yellow” . I have since gotten over that, no one has ever said anything bad about my ring, not that I should care if they did. Also I initially had a G stone but it had bad clarity and my J is nothing but sparkles, it has has good clarity and cut. If you love it, keep it, I don’t think other people really look too hard. But if you think it’s gonna bug you, maybe consider a lower carat weight in a higher color.

    @minipenguin:  I notice when someone has a diamond ring that looks dull. And if a diamond is super warm, or super white, I notice other wise I just see pretty sparkle and dont think about it. I imagine your I color Looks great!

    @minipenguin:  I don’t know if I’m good at noticing color, but I can spot a dull diamond from a mile away. I think that may have more to do with cut or a combination of cut and color.

    I can notice the colour in other people’s rings, but mostly because I looove it. I proudly wear an engagement ring with 2 H coloured diamonds. 1.25 carat, antique cut, internally flawless, but much warmer than what most people would consider ideal. I find that the warmth gives more character to the diamonds and adds a gorgeous steeliness and depth. Of course, that is only if the cut and clarity are awesome. And I prefer antique cuts, so that may have something to do with it. 

    I say that if you are attached to your ring, keep it and love it. Don’t get so fixated on the colour that you ruin it for yourself. Focus on the things that you love about it! I am sure that there are many things to love.

    I don’t pay remotely that close of attention to other people. I supposed I *might* notice if they literally held out their hand for me to examine it. Even then, it has zero bearing on my thought of them.

    I don’t do much more than glance at other people’s rings (unless they’re newly engaged and showing them off.) Still, I would never even think about it.

    I’m not sure if I do or not. I did see a girl with a beautiful solitaire yesterday. Iti wasn’t a very big stone but I was struck by how white it was and very sparkly too. I commented to my mum afterwards did you see that girls ring to which my mum replied she hadn’t even noticed even though the girl had served her at the till. 

     

    I think something I’m starting to realise is us bees are a bit ring obsessed and always looking at rings. I’m very obsessed. Since I got engaged its the first thing I look for on a woman! Before I got engaged I couldn’t of even told you if someone I’d just been speaking to was wearing a ring or not! 🙂
