yes mine is!! I have a tacori setting which uses G/VS1. I have a J/VS2/Ideal Cut center stone 

When the ring is cleaned at the jewelers, i can’t even tell (I stare at it alllll the time). When I first got it, I noticed it right away, but now I am pretty used to it. No two diamonds are alike, and a G/VS1 would have cost us thousands more and I didnt want to sacrifice size!!!

I do not have a halo, but when I was looking at wedding bands and ring guards I could tell the difference in the colors immediately when I tried them on with my ring. My ring according to GIA is H in color, I’m not sure what the bands/guards were E/G in color and they were definitely whiter. I still looove my stone and it looks completely white to me in all lighting but compared to others when up close the difference was obvious. I would maybe suggest getting the halo diamonds the same color as your center. It will look better and save you a few bucks, and maybe put the $ you save towards your bands 😉

I personally think that warmer diamonds are gorgeous. Especially in a more vintage setting. My diamond is an I color as well and even though it isn’t the stark white of a D it still looks plenty white to me. 

Here is a video link to a J color diamond in a tacori halo setting. Every time I see this ring I drool. So pretty! You can totally pull off a warmer stone in a halo.

@mg1363: What a beautiful ring!! This is a great question you posted though, I am considering getting a halo around my solitaire, and did not even consider how a different color on the halo diamonds may affect the overall look.

But yours looks great, and you really don’t notice any difference.

Yes, it is but there is no difference when you look at it. The center is J and the side stones are either F

Yes mine is..and sometimes its very noticeable..but I love the warmth in my diamond..my center diamond is graded an H  and my melee diamonds are f/g. I personally love the contrast of the  warmer princess cut surrounded by near colorless round brilliants. its hard to capture in a photo its more apparent in real life.

Center stone is D, halo and shank stones are G.

hollyeve16:  I know this post is from years ago but my engagement ring is very similar to yours and I was wondering what type of wedding band you have. Thanks!
