I have a GIA certified K colored diamond. Not a J, but kinda close!

GIA J. I’ve read, but can’t substantiate it, that GIA grades tougher on colour than AGS and AGS grades tougher on cut. My J doesn’t look warm to me.

Is it possible to see the warmness in photos?

skplue:  I also have a GIA K. It faces up bright and white, I never really notice warmth. I think you’ll notice warmth in a J if you are super colour sensitive or you hold it up next to a D colour diamond.. which you probably won’t on a day to day basis ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s best to see them in different lighting. I took some of my J next to a colourless (D) CZ in different lights so they were direct comparisons (same light, same white balance). Although you can see the difference in some – number two for example, it is small and it will never be viewed like that in real life.

ahimas:  yes! K’s can be such great values! I’m not color sensitive, but I can’t tell the difference between the bands (higher color) and my diamond.

I think it all depends on your color sensitivity. I have a GIA H and I can still see mild warmth from the side. I am color sensitive though. I think a J is a great option, but it will look warm in certain lighting. If you’re ok with that, go for it!

alanapowell:  I am getting back my J coloured heart diamond at the weekend, will post when I get it for example. I know your more after round but fancy cuts like my heart diamond show more colour and it was pretty white from face up and the side when I saw it in person. So if a shape with more colour prone looks good, a round should not be a problem. Only a bit yellow from the underneath but once set won’t be seeing any of that. If anything she only had the slightest warmth in certain light but it added depth and character to her, it depends how colour sensitive you are. You can get diamonds that are more tinted brown rather than yellow too. 

Big factors when having a lower coloured diamond is consider the size of it because the bigger it is the more colour it could show, it can vary from diamond to diamond because each appear differently. And also the cut, cut makes a massive difference in how it appears and sparkles. My heart diamond is an ideal cut and helps it look much whiter and sparkles like mad than one with a lower and poor cut.

Not round, but my emerald cut is a J.  I think step cuts need a little warmth.

bluehope:  You are right but fancy shapes dont have official cut gradings, they are very subjective. They tend to differ with each vendor and that’s why the cut grading for fancy shapes isn’t included on GIA reports etc.

Can’t wait to see your heart when it arrives! Hearts are my favourite, your fiancé must be so romantic ๐Ÿ™‚
