I don’t have exact stats on my ring. The diamond is my Fiance’s Mom’s diamond from her first engagement ring (She has had an upgrade after 25+ years of marriage). It’s a very special diamond and sentimental to all of us. I was so surpsied she’d give me such an important piece of jewerly.
Anywho, sometimes in certain light the diamnd looks like it has some color or a slight warm tint maybe? I am pretty sure the diamonds in my setting are colorless as my Fiance’ said “The are very good diamonds”. I have not been one to really care about the F,J,I,H thing. The ring is custom made from a Jeweler in San Francisco.
So my question is, does my ring have a yellow tint or is it just warmer then my surrounding diamonds?

I notice a SLIGHT tint (and only because you pointed it out) in the last pic, but that’s it.
It’s very hard to tell from photos because of different lighting conditions and so on. There is no obvious tint going on here… even with the halo for comparison.

It looks like maybe it’s a lower color grade than the surrounding diamonds. I love the warmth it shows in the last picture and I can’t see any color difference in the first two pics. Very pretty ring!

I think “yellow tint” and a “warm diamond” are the same thing.

I only notice a little bit of yellow/warmth in the stone in that last picture.

I thought so too. I put them as one in my response and then looked at her poll options and saw she had it separated. LOL

I’m not sure what your question is. The diamond does have a yellow tint because it is warm, and yes warmer than the surrounding melee diamonds.
Were you asking if the metal is what has the yellow tint? No, it’s not the metal, it’s the diamond.

Silly me! I honestly don’t know much about diamonds hehe. I thought warma and yellow were different. Please school me! I just noticed a color difference in certain lighting. I was just wanting to know if there was a slight tint and is that normal/ok with halos?
Okay so I am not crazy, thanks ladies! I guess some color difference is okay. 🙂

Definitely a “warm” diamond! (Though you can only tell in the last picture). Warm (as far as I know), is a really flattering way to say “slight color tint”.
Which some people really like! So it’s not a bad thing.

It is a little warmer/more yellow, but a stunning stone/ring. Be proud of it:)

Doesn’t matter what you call it, I think it’s lovely. I, personally prefer a warmer diamond, so that stone would be perfect for me!

BNB is right, as far as I know! Warm is just a sort of more positive way to say yellow, haha. It’s obviously not, like, “ideal,” but it shouldn’t bother you unless you want it to! I think it looks very pretty!!
Lol, the diamonds in my wedding band and in my e-ring are slightly different colors in some lighting situations–it’s like my little secret about my rings! It doesn’t worry me at all. 🙂

@ClassicLady: I would have had no idea had you not pointed it out and even then I can only see the contrast in the third picture. Most people aren’t going to stare at your ring so it’s unlikely anyone other than you will notice.

Yes, the center stone is warmer (i.e. yellower) than the melee. However, keep in mind that often even high colour grades can look less white or less sparkly next to melee, simply because tiny stones tend to confuse the eye and look crazy-white, even when they aren’t. So I’ve seen GIA F and G stones look “warm” in a setting with melee, too.
Either way, it is a beautiful heirloom stone. Congratulations on your engagement!

Right? I thought I was going crazy.
