alanapowell: your diamond shouldn’t look yellow at all. It’s excellent cut and has strong fluorescence. Round brilliants don’t show near the amount of color as fancy shapes do. So don’t worry you won’t notice any warmth! But to ease your mind, you should start a post of pricescope and ask the diamond experts. Also jamesallen has a good return policy so if you feel like you need a diamond with a higher color grade it can always be returned for a whiter diamond with a lower clarity like vs1-vs2 and still be around the same price. But I’m confident it will be beautiful!

alanapowell: if you aren’t very color sensitive, combined with the excellent cut and blue fluorescence to offset some of the color — I think you should be just fine! If you are concerned, you could always drop down to VS2 which would save you some money to go up in color!

alanapowell: The stone looks absolutely gorgeous!! I have an oval J and I love it. Mine has some fluorescence that gives it a warmer hue, but it never looks yellow. I picked it out myself and was very conscious about not picking a yellow-looking stone, cause I know I would regret that. I think your ring will be gorgeous – remember to post pictures when you get it 🙂

My center diamond is an ideal cut J. My surrounding diamonds are H, and the difference is not noticeable.

alanapowell: i posted my ring in your other thread with my J center. The pave stones are F-G and I can’t tell the difference between them! As I mentioned, I can see a tiny bit of warmth from the side if I’m looking for it, but my stone also has no fluorescence. If yours does, it should lessen the warmth. I think your ring will be gorgeous and you have nothing to worry about!

alanapowell: Congratulations! I have a GIA K Round Brilliant center stone witha very good cut and it is super crispy white from te top view. I was also told that fluoresence and a good cut make them look whiter so i doubt you have anything to worry about. Your setting is gorgeous! Post picks when you get it!

I have a GIA Ex J colour and I’ve no regrets or doubts. I took photos of it next to a D colour CZ and yes, I can see a slight difference, but most diamonds are not D colour, and my solitaire is never viewed next to a D.
In the photos with the D CZ, mine is the one with the plain shank.

I think your ring is going to be a glorious classical sparkler. I have an I diamond with no floresence it’s pretty white. Yours has flouesence which will make it look whiter as well. The diamond baguettes in my wedding ring are an E and honestly I can’t say I notice a difference. I think you’re on to a winner.

alanapowell: I sent you the pics and specs of my JA ring, with the same setting. I have an I color Round Brilliant stone and it looks crisp white. It has strong fluorescence. My fiancé is super color sensitive and was worried about the I color being yellowish. But he said when he got it in the mail and opened the box, he said “wow!” He can’t see any warmth in the center stone when it’s set on the pave setting. I think you’re going to be very happy with your ring! Please post pics when you get it!

I have a J coloured round diamond from James Allen and I think it looks very white. Mind you I have it set in yellow gold, but I still think yours will look beautiful! If its an excellent cut it will apear very white and sparkly (I’ve only had mine for a week but I’m obsessed. I love JA!)
