I like diamonds best in the F/G/H range or in the M/N/O range. I don’t care for the inbetween quite as much, although most diamonds are pretty regardless. As for moissanite, I haven’t seen much in person, but to me the problem isn’t the yellow, it’s the green/gray that bothers me.

As long as they match both wedding band/side stones/center stone. I think they look fine.

It’s when there is a big difference between bands that the yellowness stands out even more and looks bad, in my opinion.

@joya_aspera:  Oh I am well aware that fancy blues, pinks, intense yellows etc. cost more than D. I was referring to the D-Z scale, not the diamonds that fall outside of it.

D’s are typically more expensive than E-Z is all I was trying to get across.

I am looking at getting a fancy intense yellow for my engagement ring.

@Creiddylad:  For me it depends on the metal. I like colorless/near colorless stones in white metals and warm stones in yellow and especially rose gold!

I cared about it before I got my ring…now I don’t think I could care less.

@joya_aspera:  I thought i’d see more grey diamonds for sale given they aren’t as rare as I thought. When I looked online I saw lots of speckled ones but struggled to find grey colour eye clean stones that weren’t very very pricey. I might have a nosey in the jewelry quarter.

My radiant moissy sometimes looks ice-white, other times it looks pale yellow. I personally love it but I understand it isnt everyone’s cup of tea. I just really like things with unique qualities. For a long time I was positively obsessed with opals for this same reason. I love my moissy because it looks like what people would expect for the most part but it gives me that lovely color-play and it is still unique. Pretty much sums me up all-in-all: looks totally normal but not so much when you take a closer look 🙂

I think that:

A: the warmer color is probably not going to be very noticeable unless it’s held up against a perfectly white stone. 

and

B: if you have unplated white gold, the stone & color might match very nicely. (I have an unplated white gold ring that is a tiny bit on the warm side. the diamonds look super white in contrast to the metal.)  or if you use yellow or rose gold, then of course the rock is going to look very white by contrast!

I love them all. But if I had to pick I would get a stone with a color h or lower. I tried a diamond that was an E at the local jewelry store, and I felt that it was to white and bright against my olive skin tone. It was actually off putting and since have only been interested in warmer stones . I would love to have the oec moissanite for my engagement ring and that’s a j colored stone.

@moonadea:  Put sapphires in the ring next to it and  instead of throwing green/grey it will show a beautiful faint blue when the color comes out, because that’s what your eye picks up on.

@BuBuBubbles:  Well I don’t really like sapphires, but that’s probably a good tip for someone else.

I have a K 1.12 centre stone in white gold and a channel set band with maybe .75 F-H coloured (i dont know exactly) diamonds in it.  I asked my mom if she could see the difference in stone colour…NOPE. I could up close in certain light, but when is anyone that close to my ring???

Its all in our heads is what i’ve decided. The most important thing is the cut quality. Honestly thats the only thing that people notice (if anything at all).
