I’m sure it will look gorgeous. I think we can all get too hung up on colour/clarity/carats/cut. I stressed myself nuts over someone’s comment on my ring on a forum, but I love it with it’s lowish colour and clarity and they didn’t even know about the lumps that my grandma knocked out of it that I can see when I look at it closely!

It’s sweet that he’s chosen you a ring and I’m sure he’s made a good choice.

Do you have a picture of the setting?  If it’s yellow gold, the diamond will abosorb yellow anyway.  I bet it will look beautiful!  It can still be SI2 and the inclusions may be on the side covered up by the halo.  He may have found a diamond that looks a lot better than it’s rated.

That setting is gorgeous!  Do they have a return/swap policy if you think it doesn’t look right?

I think if you have it set in platinum it might be most visible that the diamond is yellow. Because white gold actually has a yellow tint to it, so the yellow in the diamond will blend in a little better.

I’m sure it will look stunning!!  Firstly, I have an SI stone too and I can only see one inclusion and thats because I looked for it not because it was obvious.  I also have a yellow diamond so I’m clearly a yellow fan but it the stone has little to no flourescence that will take away from the chance of the color showing.  The GIA report spells it all out.

Don’t give J diamonds a bad rep! I know it has to do a lot with the cut, but my beauty is an August Vintage Cushion from Good Old Gold, and it’s a J. You would NEVER know. It looks more like an E!

Please don’t stress over the color…   My diamand has a visible inclusion, however I love it even more beacause of that, not inspite of that.   I’ve had tons of people look at my ring, and never once has anyone ever noticed the inclusion.   I only know it’s there because I have stared at that diamond every day for the past 2 yrs.   Enjoy your ring and your new fiance!

go into a jewelry store and ask to see a diamond like this…the J will have a yellow hue to it…but I think its too faint to notice without a microscope…find out where hes getting it from or just head over to the mall and look at comparable diamonds so that you can see for yourself…theres also a lot of diamond education on the web…

OP. I have a J-colored stone in SI-2 clarity. It is completely eye clean and cut to ideal proportions. My stone sparkles like crazy, and in most lighting conditions I can’t see any color. Occasionally I can see a slight hint (from the side of the stone ONLY) but 95% of the time I cannot. Is your stone round? Other cuts will tend to pick up more hints of color at the points, so round is the best cut for a J colored stone. If your stone is idealy cut, it will face up extremely white and you have nothing to worry about. J is a great color for the value of the stone. And I agree, J stones totally get a bad rep. Mine sparkles like crazy and I love it. Here it is.

@kimbean: also, if you are concerned about the halo showing the stone’s color, it is possible to have a jewelry store custom make exactly what you want with stones in the H-I color range rather than F.

 

ps. nice screen name by the way 😀
