If you make sure you have excellent cut, polish, symmetry warmer diamonds ARE BEAUTIFUL and a great value. Think about it we are almost trained to think that the only acceptable diamond colors are D,E,F…you won’t know until you see them on your hand anyway. I was so worried about my J…but it is SO ME ! I love it’s personality, mostly white but there are moments when it picks up other colors.

this was taken after my fresh gel manicure today in regular outdoor environmen..

MrsSparkleBee13:  I honestly hope you’re through lying about your rings because it’s completely deceptive to post your rings in threads where the OP’s asking to see certain stones/colors/specs/etc. when you’re lying about those very things. I know you make yourself out to be someone that’s super friendly and nice and helpful here — and there are a good number of bees that think you’re a ring expert and specifically look to you for advice — but if you want to truly be helpful, just quit with all the lies.

lovealways:  She claims some of her rings are diamonds, but another poster found a link where she was selling them and the listings stated they were CZ and/or Asha (I know Asha is a type of diamond, but IIRC, they were not presented as lab grown on the Bee). 

TheGridMonster:  Agreed. Not ok to be deceptive and present a ring as something it isn’t.

FantasticFawn:  oh ok. I see she always posts on ring threads and seems to know a lot about jewelry. But I agree that misrepresenting your jewelry is kind of sad.  All of these gemstones, moissanites, Amora Gems, diamonds, CZ’s are beautiful. That’s why I love this place…I get my jewlery fix lol. I’m addicted to bling…and I might be a serial resetter….haha

lovealways:  Yeah….lying about a sim doesn’t make sense to me either. They are widespread on here and it’s nbd to have one.

You could always purchase a less expensive diamond from a place with an upgrade policy and upgrade your diamond later.

webbee:  I think a .50 is plenty especially an excellent cut round !

I can imagine a beautiful halo…. Can’t wait to see what you get. 

Its fun shopping for it and then finally deciding on the setting.

webbee:  I had the same problem with picking out a warm diamond…I went with a J that was GIA certified and I think its more an I-H…once in a while I catch the warm color but only if I’m really scrunitizing the diamond literally in front of my eyeballs. 95% of the time you cannot see ANY warmth. 3% I see a hint and 2% I see warmth.  Mine is set next to G diamonds and I see no difference. I would def check out a J colored if thats whats in your budget. 

I maybe wrong with this statement but I feel a moissy might not have much resale value so if you are going to be spending money only to replace a stone down the line..you might be wasting your money on that. You might as well get something that has some sort of resale value..and if you get it from James Allen they will let you put that money towards an upgrade down the line, which is something to consider.

jerseygirl28:  i love that about BN as well…you can upgrade in the future and you get 100% of ring value towards that…I mean it still has to be twice the price of the original ring but it’s still a great deal.
