    I do see the color, and to tell the truth, I think it might bother me personally.  Probably not so much if it was in a solitaire, but compared to the other diamonds in the band it stands out (generally smaller diamonds will look whiter than larger, so they usually use lower color grades for those)

    If you love it, don’t worry about it.  And colored diamonds are pretty popular now, so that’s a plus.  I do love the delicacy of the band and the size of the center stone together.

    It looks yellow/warm to me, BUT I love it. I would proudly rock that diamond. I love a stone with some faint color in it. I think it reflects light so much prettier than a white diamond. warm stones have so much personality. If I EVER got a round diamond, I would want M-P in color. So pretty.

    I definitely see the yellow as I can definitely see color in diamonds and much prefer G and higher colors but that is totally my personal preference! If you like it then no problem. If it bothers you then you could talk to your fiancé about an upgrade. Do you have a certificate or appraisal? You could get it appraised to see what color it is.

    Yes I can definitely see the yellow. And I agree with another poster, the side diamonds do seem like a higher grade in color. Your ring is absolutely beautiful though! So much sparkle!

    @lapelirroja:  Personally, I think it is a true diamond. It is sparkly and has a yellow undertone, but not in the way a moissanite has those things, if that’s what you were thinking.

    You’re not crazy, I can definitely see the warmth in it and it makes it easier to see next to those sidestones with a higher graded color.  Still a pretty stone though.

    Why don’t you just take it in somewhere if you’re curious to the color specs?

    I don’t think you’re being a tough critic at all…it’s a your ring and it’s beautiful. To see if it really is yellow in color (or in the k-L range), take off your ring and put it against a true white piece of paper to see. Having the ring on your finger will not give an optimal view of the color (ie the color of ur skin and the colors around the ring will be reflected In the stone). If you want an official opinion, I highly suggest you get an appraisal.

    OP, do you have insurance on the ring?  I think you need an appraisal for that (not sure, I need to look into this myself), but if you are thinking about it, that could be your way to get the information you want about the stone.  You have a beautiful ring, but yes, I can definitely see the warmth.

    If I were you, I would play up the yellow. If you get yellow gold prongs or bezel, it’s possible that the yellow will be picked up in the stone and make it look more like a fancy.

    It doesn’t look bad now, though. But it is warm enough that I think you’d have better luck playing up the yellow than trying to make it look whiter.
