    nataliabacilieri : I think you got your diamond at a pretty decent price compared to other GIA VVS1, Triple Ex, K, 1.5 ct stones, which were coming in between $6k-$7k on some of the sites I looked at, including one that was 63% and 57% in depth/table.

    I think you’ll love your diamond when you get it, especially if you’re not color sensitive! I have a 1.38, K, Triple Ex, VS2 and get compliments on it all the time even when I’m in high end luxury stores and I love the color it throws in pics. I agree with PPs that a stone that is well cut and that has great clarity is going to look amazing despite the lower grade color, and I also agree with how beautiful the fire of K diamonds is. 

    Our jeweler also advised that if we were worried about the siamond looking yellow to go with yellow gold as the setting because the contrast of the darker yellow gold helps make the stone look clearer; however, we stayed with white gold and haven’t had a problem of the diamond appearing yellow face-up. I’m certain lightings, I can see the tint; however, it’s only from the side/bottom of the diamond and only in certain lighting/not in normal every day circumstances, so I’m sure the normal person wouldn’t even notice. I only do because I am aware the diamond is a K. Here are some pics of my ring/setting which is a double-row pave in both bands, with H-I graded diamonds in the pave of both bands:

    Compared to a 1.5 ct, H, VS1:

     I also think that unless you are comparing your stone to a better colored stone, then there is no way it’ll be that noticeable. & sense excellence specs help it look even less yellow, you might’ve found the best deal/stone out there. I say buy it, if you end up disappointed you can return it.
