My sweet and wonderful guy of 5 years recently proposed to me with my dream ring. Rose gold, 1.25ct oval stone in a halo setting. I am so grateful and I love it. One thing that I am having to get used to is that it is a J color and, in my opinion, shows the yellow quite a bit in certain lights. I always wanted an “icy” stone, so I am adjusting to loving my “warm” diamond. Anyone else get a color that they did not anticipate? Is it too warm?

I see what you are saying but personally I think it’s stunning. It’s almost a champagne color and beautiful! I am more partial to warmer stones however.

I’m not a fan of warm stones usually but this is beautiful. To me, it looks like the warmth is coming mostly from the metal color.

I think because it’s in a romantic setting and in rose gold it actually looks really nice with some warmth.
Warm diamonds look terrible in white gold, in my opinion, but lovely in rose gold.

I love it! It doesn’t look very warm to me. I love rose gold settings with warmer colored diamonds. If you think it’s too noticeable, my advice is to (one day!!) replace the little diamonds in the halo for warmer diamonds. That way there won’t be a contrast and the diamond will look less warm.
That being said, your ring is absolutely beautiful, congratulations on your engagement!

I think the colour of your stone compliments the colour of your band really well. You have a beautiful e ring.

what a gorgeous ring!!! It’s truly stunning, and I bet the reason you notice the warmth is in part because of the icy white accent stones… maybe think of it as ‘champagne on ice’ !! The best of both worlds. It’s exceptional!!
It can take some time to adjust to what you’ve received vs what you imagined – and that’s totally normal. You don’t have to stop loving icy diamonds – heavens knows, perhaps you’ll revive many more in your future – for now, focus on loving what you’ve received and the loving thoughts that went into selection & the proposal.

I actually prefer warm diamonds (I have ‘Autumn’ coloring and wear colors that are better suited to warm diamonds) to icy ones, so admittedly I am biased. My engagement ring is a Q/R color diamond, in fact. When set in yellow gold, in certain light it looks like a fancy light yellow.
I generally don’t perceive J colored diamonds as necessarily warm, but I think your setting is going to add/emphasize a bit of color. From the photo, I was surprised to hear it was a J but lighting can do funny things!

Personally I love it! Its gorgeous!
Also do keep in mind, if you wanted an “icy” diamond, it would probably be half the size, if not smaller, for the same price. So you definitely got a show stopping size with the warmer colour.

Honestly I think this is insanely gorgeous. I actually chose a J on purpose because I wanted more “personality.” Mine is a total chameleon. Sometimes it looks icy and other time super warm. It has personality

I absolutely love it! My diamonds are a color D and E, so normally I like very white, but this is stunning! abbeyrachel326 :

Your ring is beautiful! I think the diamonds in the halo may be throwing you off a bit because they’re whiter. But the warmer center stone is perfect in the rose gold. 😍

Very pretty indeed, the warmth adds to the soft romantic look in my opinion x
