I have a J center stone and E-H in the halo. It’s very rare that my center picks up warmth, but its more of a mild buttery color when it does

aaliyah :  Thank you!! Yes, I would say so. It’s really not that discernible unless you look closely at it.

aaliyah :  Hi hun i hope this will help you decide based on my experience… I had a princess cut that was a J color surrounded by F-G stones and it was extremely noticeable.. Under sunlight and under normal lighting there was a very yellow tinge , It bothered me and i went up to an H color … The H is way better now and I couldn’t be happier.. But if budget is the issue , go to a local jeweler they can make you a setting that will match the center stone! They can make a custom setting with h-i-j stones and it should either cost around the same amount or a little less since the color grade is lower and it will look much better…  Unless you are getting a round brillant for the center diamond I heard rounds hide color extremely well compared to any other cut of diamonds… So if your getting a round then no worries you will be fine. I wish i saved the picture so i can show you but this was 2 years ago and changed out my ring.. I also had a white gold setting..

aaliyah :  I think a J in a round brilliant should be fine! Just make sure you get a round with very good or excellent cut don’t settle for less the cut is what makes the stone hide the color as well… I would still consider getting a setting with H-I color stones if that is an option it will blend beautifully.. You would probably save some money on a custom halo with lower color grade stones.I know other bees are posting photos of their rings but it will look totally different in person!  I hope it all works out for you keep me posted! πŸ™‚ xo

aaliyah :  I’m pretty sure round brilliants mask colour better. πŸ™‚ Also, a better cut will mask colour better, because of how much light it throws back at you. You can always go to pricescope to check out more ring photos. Lots of people there have I/J coloured RBs in halos!  Hope this helps. πŸ™‚
