@MrsDrRose612: It only depends on if you like the colors together. My diamond is an H, and when I have tried on wedding bands in the store some have looked much whiter than my stone. My side stones are a G, so when I get my band they will be in a G or H so they match. But I am super picky, as long as you don’t mind go for it. If you ask them to make it with a lower-colored diamond you may even pay less.

Forgot to say that I think the set looks GREAT together. The band is gorgeous with the solitaire. If it were me, however, I would go down in diamond color because I would want to showcase my center stone. But that is just my opinion! I really like your FH’s band, also!

it never even crossed my mind to think about color or clarity when I purchased my band. I simply tried on different rings and selected the one that looked best with my e-ring. 

your set looks amazing together! I really love it.

What do you mean by GIA/EGL paperwork? Those are completely different labs with different grading standards. Do you have two certificates?

I like the style of those rings together very, very much but I would be concerned about a color difference.

If you dont mind the difference, I think the set let looks great.  Its just personal perference, it would have drove me nuts if they didnt match, but I dont think it necessarily looks bad either.

Would it be possible to get a band that is also I color?  That way the entire set will continue to look colorless since on its own.  Most people cant pick out such a subtle difference without something else to compare it to.  But when put right next to a F, H/I only then is it noticibly yellower.

I think the set looks great!  Keep in mind that melee diamonds (like the 4 pointers in your band) reflect light differently than larger diamonds so they will always look “white.”  There’s probably no way to get diamonds that size to look exactly the same as your big ol’ I.

Is there any way that you can take a digital camera and take a picture of the rings with the macro setting? That will probably give a better indication of the color and a little more detail to look at. Sometimes a cell phone or Ipod can make the colors a little wonky. Also, since you’ve already put down the deposit ask one of the sales people in the store if they will walk out of the store with you so you can get away from the lights in the store. Store lights can sometimes distort the color of some stones.

I’m sure in normal lighting and natural lighting the color difference will not be that noticable. Keep in mind that your engagement ring is at the end of the near colorless spectrum and the band is at the end of the colorless spectrum. Not sure if that really makes any difference, but it can be the reason the diamond in your e-ring might look a little yellow against the band.

You could also go back and visit the band with a fresh set of eyes or take a friend that knows about rings and ask them.
