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 πŸ™‚

you spent 15k on a ring and your worried you went too cheap? Unless you’re the queen of england I wouldn’t worry.

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.
