1) Different labs may grade softer than GIA, therefore a GIA graded K might be an AGS J. 

2) There is a spectrum to color. It has to be less color than a K but more than an I to fall in the J range.

3) Grading can be subjective and not all stones on WB are certified by either the same lab or even a lab at all. Some are graded in house and the appraiser gives it a color grade, not the lab.

4) Clarity characteristics, fluorescence, shape of stone, settings, color of side stones, metal color, lighting, and viewing angle can all have an impact on the amount of body color a stone shows at any given time.

Good old Gold shows this in a video about a N and M colour grades but it gives you an idea if you applied the same logic to a J. Some J’s may appear more yellow and some more grey or brown and the large value difference because of that. I have a friend that wanted a large stone on a set budget so she was happy to go greyer on the colour scale as she wanted to avoid a warm tinted diamond and she got a beauty that looks incredible and unless you were colour sensitive or it was compared to a F, G you would think it was white.

Here is my J colored diamond. It looks very clear in natural light however, I do notice more of a yellow tint in dim light or where the lighting seems to be more yellow toned. e ring

mariastarlove :  Yours looks super white! I have a GIA J, VS antique cushion. Like PP said, the tint mine has is steely grey – not yellowish. It actually looks much worse in photos than IRL….

wrkbrk :  Aww, thank you! Did you know that Ijust happened upon her? Someone else was the one who selected the diamond and worked with CvB to create the ring. But after a few months the original owner decided to sell her. She posted about it on PS and I saw it minutes after she posted. I snatched it right up! Didn’t even need to size her or anything. And the original owner was selling her for the exact amount I had saved for an upgrade. It was meant to be! Then I reached out to CvB to create a coordinating one-of-a-kind wedding band. Everytime I look down, I think of how everything just seemed to fall into place for her to become mine. 😍

My stone is a J, but I really never notice any yellowness to it at all! Sometimes when I scrutinize a photo of it, I can see a subtle bit of yellow, but not in my day-to-day.

Here is my J! I think mine seems super white. The diamond is from my grandma’s engagement ring while my husband helped customize the setting.

Yours looks so white!

My center stone is a GIA VVS1 color J 3.01 

I chose all rose gold to make the diamond appear whiter. Sometimes it looks whiter and other times it looks warm πŸ™‚
