Mine is a GIA K colour. I think with I/J/K or maybe even lower colours that I haven’t tried on, it’s hard to tell that it looks yellow unless you hold it right next to a D-G colour. But then again, some people are really colour sensitive. And all diamonds are different. I’ve seen a few J diamonds that look more “coloured” than my K. So who knows! Diamonds are so fickle. Excellent cut and higher clarity help coloured diamonds look brighter and maybe whiter. 

My camera isn’t great (doesn’t focus on diamond) but I’ll post pictures in different lighting:

Whitetoes:  Thank you! I love ovals as well, so pretty. Just know that fancy cuts (ie: not round brilliant) will show more color, so keep that in mind if you’re color sensitive.

Whitetoes:  I prefer stones in the near colorless range (G,H,I,J) but H is definitly a sweet spot for me. And thank you so much! : )

Mine is H according to EGL which means it’s at least an I. My jeweler guessed H or I, but whatever it is, I love it. It is kind of a creamy white and throws soft pastel colors. im very color sensitive and I DO see pale yellow in certain lights like in this pic, however the pastel rainbow is awesome. As long as you have a good cut, warmer diamonds are very pretty.

I really thought I would never forget these stats, but I’m sitting here drawing a total blank on my anniversary ring center stone’s color. I think it’s E, but it might be D. I’m too lazy to pull out the paperwork to check.

My original ERing center stone is an H (I think … it might be a G, but, again, I don’t remember).

I’m fairly color sensitive, which we discovered way back when we shopped for my original ring. The H  never bothered me. It was set in YG, which probably helped a little, but the prongs right around the stone are platinum. And still, I never noticed warmth or color in it.

I was looking for a picture of them together, for a comparison on the color, but the only shots I have are terrible. I should take some new ones. (Any excuse for a photo-op — ha, ha!)

I have a GIA I colour diamond and it almost always looks white!  i was originally looking at G and H colours but I ended up liking this one better because it was more sparkly!  Excuse the blurry photo, I took it today because the fluorescent lights made it looks crazy white

And a normal picture I took a while ago!

Mine is a GIA certified I color, VS1, princess cut diamond. 


It was listed as an excellent grade on James Allen, but for princess cuts, GIA doesn’t grade the cut, just the polish and symmetry. I really love how near-colorless diamonds look with white gold – my SIL has a colorless diamond, and it looks too cool next to her band for my tastes.

blushbliss:  wow, I didn’t know your stone was an I. One thing that put me off rose gold around the stone was the fear that the rose would pull out more color from my J stone, but that’s def not an issue with yours. ARHH, now I’m rethinking everything!! lol
