Hey everybody! So my bf and I went ring shopping yesterday and to my suprise we bought the diamond! But now that I keep thibling about it we did go for a lower color than I originally would have liked and am thinking was I too cheap?? So we bought our ring for $15,000 with diamond and setting included. The diamond itself is a I color vs2 Gia certified princess cut 1.8 carat we got a really good deal on it. And I was ecstatic so all the logic in my head flew out the window. I do like stones that are a little more warm but I very much dislike yellow. In the sunlight it doesn’t seem to be warm but with the d colored side stones u can tell. The jeweler says he will make the side stones the same color as the main stone so there’s no difference but he said if we would like to find something else he would let us. So now I’m really worried. Here are some pictures

hairstylist101: I love your ring, I think it looks beautiful. My diamond is a J color and I never really notice a tint to it.

From the pics, it looks amazing! I have a J color diamond… about 1.35 carats. You definitely cannot tell there is any yellow. Don’t overanalyze it. Also, it is good to know that it is GIA certified because they are so strict, so by any other lab’s analysis, it may be considered closer to H, etc. It’s beautiful!

I think it’s lovely. I have an I diamond too though so might be biased! In bright sunlight and side on I can see a tint but most of the time it’s pretty icy.

If the pave stones are the same I don’t think you’ll notice anything. It looks very white to me!

I have an I color, VS2 princess as well! Mine is 1.51 carats and my FI got a deal on it at $9,000 including the band (no diamonds on the band). Occasionally I will see some yellow in it so I know where you are coming from. I think your ring is gorgeous! I am constantly complimented on mine. It is likely that only you will notice the slight warmth of the color as I do….most people will be enamoured with it’s size and sparkle! I would definitely change out the pave stones to a warmer color to balance it out. Gorgeous ring!
Included a pic of my diamond for reference 🙂

gwendolyn86: I ment I went cheap on the color. I would have spent the same amount regardless but maybe go for a smaller stone with a better color.
MrsT2009: thank you! I will 🙂

My center diamond is an H with d colored sidestones. I notice the difference SOMETIMES in certain lights but for the most part I can’t even tell. Personally I can’t tell much of a difference with the sidestones from your pictures. If you do decide to do something about it I would tell your jeweler to change the sidestones rather than find a new center diamond, but unless it’s REALLY bothering you then you shouldn’t regret it! It’s a beautiful stone and a beautiful ring!
Here are pictures of mine for reference. I feel that the warm tint is more visable from the side than from straight on. It helps that you don’t have a halo setting, because halo settings usually make the difference stand out more!

Wow I think that ring is gorgeous!! I wouldn’t change a thing about it, but I agree with previous posters that if it bothers you, have the jeweler match the stones in the setting to match the color of your center stone.
My center stone is a 1.1CT J colored diamond. I don’t know the color grade of the stones around the setting but I do think they are slightly higher than J. The ONLY time I notice the warmth is from a slight profile in the direct sunlight (and even then, its usually only early-morning sunlight, if that makes sense?)

hairstylist101: I think it’s gorgeous! Mind you melee stones will always look whiter, even if they’re the same color, due to their smaller size, but it will be beautiful, I’m sure.

I have an I color solitaire and I never notice yellow. Originally I had a J but I did notice yellow and it made me crazy. My I has strong blue fluorescence in it which make it look even whiter too. I was told I’m very color sensitive becauer the yellow in the J drove me crazy but I never see yellow in my I.
