They’re nearly colorless so its not like the warmth is strong. Also, setting it in a colored metal will help it appear whiter.

If you are buying a GIA or AGS H, I or J stone in an excellent/ideal cut round brilliant, it ought to look quite white – especially set in YG or RG. There are generally two schools of thought: One says that the YG/RG will reflect into the stone and make it appear yellower anyway, so why buy a colourless stone; the second says that the contrast between the metal and the stone will make the stone appear whiter anyway, so you don’t need a colourless stone. Either way, the “nearly colourless” range is ideal for YG/RG.

I have a K in a yellow gold head and I barely ever notice any warmth.

I have a GIA cert. I diamond. Marquise diamonds tend to show more warmth and I am pretty color sensitive so I can definitely see more color depending on the lighting… but honestly my diamond just looks really bright and shiny and sparkly and usually I don’t see any color. Anyone that’s commented on it IRL usually refers to how bright it is. I’ve even had people say it looks really ‘white’. I love my diamond 🙂

 In the pics below you can see how lighting can affect …

Mine is K color and I never really notice any warmth! I’m not suser color sensitive but everybody goes out of their way to compliment my ring so I don’t think it’s noticeable. The contrast between the rose gold and the white diamond makes a difference! Plus you can get a bigger diamond for your money. 😉

You will really only notice the difference when you put it next to another diamond that is of a higher grade.  Personally I would not go below an H

My center stone is a K. I can see it’s slightly cloudy at times but doesn’t look yellow.

Mine is a GIA H set in rose gold.  Emerald’s are supposed to show more colour and I have yet to see this.
