    Our budget was similar and I ended up with an H color 2.01 SI1 that is eye-clean – I couldn’t be happier! It’s gorgeous, not yellow at all and it sparkles like crazy. Therefore my vote is for the G color 2 carat. Let us know what you decide! Here is my baby.

    The halo will accentuate the color of the center stone – or highlight its faults. A G color center next to H color halo diamonds will be a much better match. I would not go down in color in this instance. Quality over quanitity, IMO! Good luck ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks so much! My finger is a 6.5. One of the reasons this stone was chosen was for how large it faces up while still being an excellent cut! Also, that is a pretty zoomed in pic. Here it is on my hand (my avatar.) LOL

    Your 2.5 ct sounds a lot like mine. I can tell you that I have a J colored diamond with strong blue flouro, and it looks white white. My pave stones are all h-i and the center diamond looks whiter. Plus fluorescence is just about the most badass property a diamond can have.

    @bluerose88:  I have a 1.51 I color and I had to ask my fiance to show me the GIA report because I didn’t belive him. In my diamond, at least, I can’t identify any color (even from the side). I’ve compared it to diamonds of higher color, and honestly can not tell them apart. But all diamonds are cut different! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Go to the webpage truthaboutdiamonds.com

    This webpage is very helpful when it comes to explaining what to look for in a diamond, so that you are not paying for a characteristic that isn’t really that noticeable. For example, the website claims that for round cut diamonds, you can get an H-I color diamond, and people will hardly notice.

     

    Personally, I would probably go for the I color diamond, since the clarity seems to be better that the other one anyway.

    @bluerose88:  Thank you! He definitely did well! This is under one of those spotlight thingies over the table at Hard Rock but it’s really sparkly in normal light too!

    @bluerose88:  I have a J colored diamond– and the ONLY time it’s slightly yellow is when I am in my salmon colored bathroom– and it’s not even “yellow”– it’s picking up the salmon and therefore looks warm.  I have a yellow dining room/living room- never does it look yellow.

    Guys it’s not the color or fluorescence it’s the difference between an ags ideal optics excellent cut and a GIA excellent faceware calculation that doesnt look as stunning. The angles and per perportions have to be just right and the G si1 has the bling going for it. And an eye clean si1 is the top choice of consumers later down the line. If u ever upgrade it will be much easier to resell and you this is going in a halo…so the .5mm will be hidden by surrounding diamonds.

    Go with the 2.5! People tend to forget that carat is one of the 4 C’s. An I is still colorless and VS1. Wowzers
