I have a G and it is icy white. You likely won’t see any color in a G, H or I. I’m not sure the exact classification scale, but G and I think H is ‘near colorless’. Those are not really considered ‘warm’ generally. If you want warm, you should try a J or K. 

Edit – I have a round brilliant, not a step cut. Maybe a step cut would show more warmth, but I would be suprised if they showed so much color to be considered a warm diamond, but I’m not familiar wiith step cuts at all.

This is my H (GIA graded) diamond set in platinum. This picture isn’t the greatest, but you can’t see color in my diamond in person at all. Are you looking at GIA graded diamonds? An H colored GIA certified diamond will be a lot more colourless than an H In another grading.

My ring is an H set in platinum. I don’t notice any color at all, truly. I think going for “near colorless” instead of “colorless” is a great way to save, because I couldn’t see the difference (when looking at all excellent cut RBs). No way to know till you can see the H emerald in person! But i bet it will be gorgeous if the cut and clarity are excellent.

I have an I cushion (XXX, VS1) with D-E-F diamonds in the pave band.

I do occasionally see a touch of warmth if I am looking closely but I am always scrutinising it. 99% of the time it’s colourless and sparkly. Even if it does show some colour it’s beautiful. But if you do want warmth, you will probably want to go to a J or K.

The picture is taken inside on an overcast day so is a bit rubbish but hopefully helps.

mine’s more white and doesn’t really have any color. i haven’t been able to photograph it shiny though so it just comes off as dull in pictures 🙁

TexasBride2Be:  thank you so much! I love it. I think maybe the H does give it a pastel-y glow but I’ve never lived with a colorless icy one so I couldn’t say if that’s the difference. Here’s a pastel-y pic. A lot of light also flows through the side of my setting in all directions which helps the brightness too. Another element to consider!
