@maplemag:  I don’t remember the exact specs on the H but I believe it was around 1.2 and vs2.  My J is 1.21 ct, VS1 with 0.29 ct I-J pave diamonds in the band set in platinum.

My ring is I/J…I do notice a soft yellow tint in the flower stones and I love it! I wear it with a rose gold band so it works well together. Clarity is I1/I2 though so SI2 would be superior for sure!

It doesn’t show in the pics that it’s slightly yellow…

I have an H color GIA diamond with strong blue floresence and it looks colorless in any lighting and against any other A-F stones. If you’re considering I or J, I would look for one with floresence as well! It’s technically considered a ‘bad’ thing so it makes the ring much more affordable too.

I struggled with the decision too , size vs color but honestly most of the time you dont notice that its “warm” or yellow tinted when there are lights around because its pretty sparkly. The only time you can really tell is during regular natural light/or computer light, when the light is a bit blue – then you can see if yellow – but even then I kind of like that its a little bit different. The industry tries to tell us what is good and bad based on “their” value but honestly I wanted a bigger stone and actually wanted a fancy yellow diamond (but my husband didnt like it too yellow) so it was a kind of compromise 😉  Iphone photos dont do it justice unfortunately because the diamond reflect the light to the camera differently than to the eye. 

 

Hope this helps!

I apologize for the huge photo! My E princess cut (left) next to my I cushion (right) Cushion is really dirty.

Here is my J color 2.38 H&A/excellent cut round brilliant with strong blue Fluorescence.  I feel like it faces up 99% white in sunlight and some other instaces but if I’m in a beige or yellow room it looks yellowish and in diffused lighting it looks buttery next to the melee, but probably wouldn’t be as noticeable if it was set in a solitare. It is EGL cert’d so i would say it behaves more like a low J/K. I am posting a few pix so you can get an idea of how it looks in various lighting. Additional info: the melee is G/H. Which makes the stone look a little warmer at times, and the setting is white gold with a platininum head. I wanted the best cut my bf could afford (as sparkle factor was no.1 and a larger sized stone was no. 2), so color didn’t matter that much to me. If I had melee that was closer in color you would not be able to tell at all.             I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my J/K stone! Not to mention the sweetie who got it for me (lol).

GIA J-color 5-stone .40ct each. It looks white until I put it next to the truly white band.
