    Whiteflash is amazing!  What’s the diameter difference between a 0.93 and 1.03 stone?  It likely is so small that it won’t be noticeable, in which case I personally would go for the smaller H color as I am somewhat color sensitive and prefer F/G color (although my e-ring is an H color and I love it!).  Whiteflash’s 6-prong Tiffany-style setting is really fantastic as well!

    To get an idea of what it will look like, you can plug the numbers into diamdb.com and take a look.

    Have you been to a store to compare various color grades of diamonds to see what is most appealing to your eye?  It will not necessarily be D/E/F – everyone is different!

    missq18 :  If you have time to visit a slightly higher end store that stocks GIA or AGS certified diamonds, that might help.  Most likely if you were ok with what Kay’s called an H, you will be very happy with what AGS calls an I color.  Well-cut stones really do face up beautifully white.  One woman who had told her boyfriend that she wanted nothing less than an F saw my GIA H e-ring, thought it was a D, and after we chatted, told him to go to my jeweler and get an H and save the rest of the money!!!

    missq18 :  I don’t think you can go wrong with either! Here’s a vid of my I colored Tiffany ring in case it’s helpful: https://vimeo.com/182792808

    I think mine has faint fluorescence, which helps it look a bit whiter too.

    missq18 :  I think it still depends — there can be slight variations within a grade and if any of them have some kind of fluoro that might impact it too. So it’s hard to say without seeing them, although my guess is the differences will still be pretty negligible. Happy hunting!

    missq18 :  You could always ask Whiteflash if the I stones are closer to H or J.  They will pull them and tell you and they do this all the time!  That’s the beauty of using a store that doesn’t have virtual inventory – they are all on hand and ready to be examined.

    missq18 :  You don’t need to run the HCA on ACA stones from Whiteflash.  All you need to do is look at the ASET images.  The “A Cut Above” standards are much more stringent and will tell you way more than the HCA!
