bodhimcbod:  I think that is stunning. The setting and stone are so elegant and just amazing. I love the cut, too.

I don’t know as much about the older cuts, but my understanding is that those types of cuts actually look better with a stone that has some color to it. (I might be totally wrong here, and I hope someone will jump in to correct me if I am.)

In the pictures, to me, it doesn’t look very yellow at all next to the platinum. I’m generally pretty color sensitive. But the only way to know for sure what it will look like in person is to actually see it in person. Is there a good return policy? So that you could try it out to see whether or not the lower color bothers you? It could be that, once you see it in person, it won’t bother you at all.

I think it’s lovely! A J ring will look slightly yellow because that’s the shade it is. It depends on your personal preference ultimately.

omg its $12,500 for a J colored 1.09 ct?! Thats way overpriced IMO. My biggest thing was color, I got a F colored center stone for under $10K thats almost 2 ct… just make sure you are getting ur $$’s worth!

It really depends on the individual (how colour sensitive you are) and the stone itself. My ring that’s being made is going to have a j coloured heart diamond and when I saw it in person I only saw yellow when it was totally upside down and didn’t see the colour from face down or sides. However, when I was shopping around I also saw another heart with the same rating and was extremely yellow. So the cut and individual diamond can play heavy here.

it is a beautiful ring. I have heard that your more likely to get more colour with an OEC, but that’s just from my research. I’d say… If your worried about it in pictures then it could only look worse in person. I would say that you should be 100% happy if you are going to spend that amount of money, it’s not a cheap ring.

Gorgeous ring! I myself love a bit of warmth in diamonds so am comfortable going down to K, BUT that being said, I wouldn’t entirely trust those photos. I feel like most places do a whole lot of photoshopping to their pics. Is there a return period? It’d be great if you could see it in person first.

Beautiful ring!  I love classic solitaires like that.  I have an I/J colored diamond that doesn’t look yellow at all. Mine is an old european cut and sparkles beautifully.  You should see if they can send you more photos and from different angles or a video of the ring.

I had a j colored diamond and it was fine…but the price seems a little high for that color grade.

It’s beautiful but extremely over priced. You could buy an oec diamond and have a setting made to look exactly like that one for almost half the price. 

Here are some examples of comparable diamonds. There are some great custom jewelers that could replicate that setting and save you thousands. I recommend getting a quote from David klass his prices and work are outstanding. Just a thought 🙂
