Two rings, yet color and clarity are different?

I think they just bank on the average buyer not knowing what an I color diamond should look like or asking those types of questions. I highly doubt they were graded by any reputable lab.

It could be the cut/light performance or the nature of the inclusions. Color and clarity tell you nothing about symmetry/polish/cut. Even in two rings with I colored stones, a stone with a lot of cloudiness/feathering will face up differently than one with a ton of little black carbon spots. Light return will vary drastically based on the quality of the cut. 

This is why GIA grading and working with a reputable jeweler is so important.
