@Paleored:  Yes, I have posted mine a number of times before.  Here it is, below.  By the way, my center stone is a D, (because I could really tell a difference between the D and a slightly larger G-colored stone I was trying to decide between.) However, so many of the Js on this thread, including yours, are just stunning! πŸ™‚

Not sure where about’s in the UK you are but if you are able to, it may be worth you making a trip to Hatton Gardens in London or The Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham. Both are filled with individual jewellery stores and workshops and they are much more reasonable than store’s on the high street. PLUS you can choose your own diamond!

Many of them also have an online service so this may also be an option if you are unable to visit in person.

Good luck and happy ring shopping! πŸ™‚

It’s up to you. As my jeweler said, if you can’t see the difference, why pay the difference? I find myself obnoxiously color senaitive. Before I did my diamond research, I thought D was no whiter than I when looking through the table. Now, I feel like I can really see the color in I stones and it bothers me. It’s up to your own personal preferences.

@wedmewedmenot:  

Wow, you really couldn’t get much further away lol! 

In that case I would check out Diamond Heaven (they have a shop in the Jewellery quarter and also an on-line store with good reviews) or Blue Nile have a UK website too. The advantage of Blue Nile is that you can view the certificate on the website and check out all of the spec’s before you buy.

I looked at lots of diamonds and personally preferred the ‘near colourless’ range (mine is a H) but (IMHO) the cut is most important when chosing a stone and a well cut diamond will always look beautiful.

Hope this helps πŸ™‚

@wedmewedmenot:  I totally agree re: cut being the most important. My diamond is a J but because the cut is very good, it doesn’t really exhibit any yellow tones.
