My GIA J colour diamond. An excellent cut helps a round brilliant face up white. It looks white to me and nobody has ever asked about the colour. The second photo shows it next to my Cartier eternity with E/F colour diamonds

Mine is a J and you can definitely tell, but I love it anyway!

The round is a G color and the princess cut is an H color.

This is an H and it’s still white white white! In an excellent cut Round Brilliant it doesn’t matter as much. Great way to save. In fact I think Ds are kind of a waste, they’re soooo much pricier and you can’t really tell the difference between that and E, F or even near colorless unless their right next to a D. (Speaking about RBs- cushions, radiants, emerald cuts hold more color)

Mine is a GIA I, and it is plenty white enough for me. I doubt you would be able to see colour in most nearly colourless stones unless you compared them right next to a colourless stone, and sometimes even then it is hard to tell. And excellent cust also goes a long way toward making a round stone face up white.

Mine is very obviously not white, and I love it. The color is absolutely mesmerizing, in my opinion! The ring belonged to my great grandmother (it’s over 100 years old!) and is an S-T color.

Mine is an H color and the diamonds in my band are G. They look white to me. : )

Mine is an I cushion cut, the pave stones are F-G, I think. The fancy cut definitely shows more color; sometimes I see the warmth and sometimes I don’t. I don’t love the warmth but I am very color sensitive, as it turns out (bummer to find out after the fact). Most of the time though, it sparkles like crazy and I don’t notice the warmth, only really in my office or very dim lighting.

I will say this though, we were shopping for bands the other day and some of the more diamond-heavy bands looked very white next to my center stone. I’m not sure if we’re going to have a band made with G-H-I stones or just go with it, I haven’t quite figured out what I want to do yet.

Looking a little warmer but sparkly

Looking whiter
