Mine’s I. Very happy with it. I probably would go even lower, but as PPs have mentioned, it would depend on the particular stone.

I looked at so many stones before choosing mine, and almost every time I noticed not liking the colour as soon as they crossed from I to J. I could SEE the colour change prior to that, but it did not bother me until it went from I to J. Others have this same experience at other points on the colour scale. So, naturally, I went with an I! Because it is cut so well, I never notice anything except sparkle.

Super old thread, but oh well.  I have an Amora Gem that is G in color.  I would go down to a stone that was an I or even a J if the cut was excellent.

I bought a J. My husband and I decided to try it out for a week and return it if I wasn’t satisfied (there is a 30 day return policy). I have learned that in under 1 ct or in a round it probably won’t be noticeable. However, I got a 1.52 oval and it can be quite warm in some light. However, I have decided that I still like it. It gives it more of an antique look that I think goes well with the shape. Plus, if I wanted a G or even a H I would need to go down in size. My trial week is up now and I think I will keep it.

My diamond is an F. I couldn’t go any lower than that as I am color sensitive.

Mine is a D colour.  I definitely sacrificed size for colour but I’m very happy with it.

My center stone is an H, and I have G diamonds in the halo and on the shank. I think you can see a little bit of a difference between the color of the center stone and the ones surrounding it, but that doesn’t bother me. I picked this diamond because I love the way it glitters and the way the facets were cut. I also prioritized clarity over color. I was choosing between this and an E, but the E had a black carbon spot in the middle of it that bothered me. I wouldn’t have gone lower than an H though.

I feel like this is super personal, you really should look at stones. After cruising this board, I was so against J colored stones and was so worried everyone would see yellow. The RB I was going to get was a J, and faced up clear, sparkley, and white as all get out. The side showed the yellow, but that’s not how it faced up. Sure, in comparison to higher colors it will look different, but honestly that tiny bit of warmth really sold me on it. Just make sure your side stones are in the same color ballpark. I had a setting and that diamond picked out, I just couldn’t bring myself to let my boyfriend spend the amount. Bez Ambar makes amazing rings. Sigh.


Also, almost every jeweler has told me that an excellent cut RB is the way to go if you want to get a J color, since fancy cut stones tend to show their color more. I picked out an F color oval as my future ring and that picks up much more yellow than the RB.

My stone is a G . I had a yellow gold setting but recently had reset and the stone looks so much better in white . Much more sparkle .
