1822I know this thread is old but, I am so excited about my “J”.  I just had to show it off.  It’s a .90c J VVS2, EX,EX,VG ideal cut.  I love the way it sparkles and the color is just beautiful.

This thread convinced me. I just got my j color diamond which I will have my engagement ring reset with. You can see a little warmth in this lighting, but I’m sure it’ll still be beautiful in my rose gold solitaire setting!

  hi i have a j color diamond rhr i found for a great price ..really i think im the only one who actually notices the yellow color..as others have said its very subjective as in different lighting i showed a indoor pic with flash where it looks very white and shows no color…and then pics in sunlight outside where it shows the most color. Btw indoors lighting it looks white generally also in stores it looks clear as water..so as with many stones they change a bit thats whats interesting.

Old thread, but it was helpful for me, and in case others are still looking:  

Here’s my JK ring, inside with natural light behind.  It was originally in a platinum setting, which I think showed a bit more of the color.  I’d heard it could go both ways – yellow gold either enhancing or detracting from the warmth in the stone, but in my case, I think it minimized the color.  I quite like a bit of warmth in diamonds, though!

I researched low colored diamonds RELENTLESSLY before selecting my diamond. My fiance and I purchased it online through James Allen in order to get a better deal on the ring I wanted. 

Some things that I found in my research that can completely change the amount of yellow you do or do not see in the ring is (obviously) the cut, the fluorescence (higher blue will counteract the yellow), shape of the stone (stones with a large flat top like mine – radiant & emerald – will show more yellow than a princess cut because they deflect more light). If you’re going for a low color stone, pay close attention to getting a good cut (excellent or above) and high blue fluorescence. 

My specs: 4.07 tc Radiant halo, K color; VS1 – Polish: Excellent; Medium blue fluorescence (GIA certified); Size 4.75 finger.

My jeweler noted that there is a wide range within the J category. I debated between I and J before going with this J, but when I realized the price difference was $1,400 more for an I … I decided wouldn’t I rather go on vacation? 😛
