Mine is GIA graded I in color and I hardly notice any warmth! Though I may not be that color sensitive 🙂 I am not sure about the fluorescence though.

Here’s my GIA I color (no fluorescence) at its yellowest:


It’s normally pretty ‘white’ IMO. I think could do a GIA J/K for my tastes(yellow gold on ‘warm’ brown skin) but I kept reading that that would be too low in an EC so I asked for the I.

It usually looks like this:

…so, not blinding icy but not yellow/’peepee’ either (to my eyes at least.)

beefabulous:  Hi Bee. I think I already posted mine in another of your threads, so I won’t do that here 🙂 But the title of your thread reminded me of an old one I found really helpful back when I was looking, so I thought I’d link it if you didn’t already see it: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/to-j-or-not-to-j-show-me-your-j-rings/ 

I think the best question you can ask yourself is how color sensitive are you? Because a J colored stone will show warmth, it is not colorless. But it sure isn’t yellow either. But if you are color sensitive, you probably shouldn’t go with a J color.. I would suggest H or maybe I, depending on the particular stone.

Mine is a J and I love it so much. Can see warmth in certain lighting, but I like that it has personality.

I have a GIA I with strong blue flourescence, I just got it so I havent quite seen it in all lights, but I was pleasantly surprised at how white it looks face up, especially in sunlight, also I have a rose gold band which may also contribute it looking more white, but not sure!

After seeing scores of diamond in person and online, I knew I could go to an I but not a J. However, there are plenty of gorgeous J colored stones, too. Mine is a 1.71 ct GIA I with strong blue fluoro.
