I don’t know why I didn’t post this in my earlier post as well, but I have an EGL J OEC cut that is set in rose gold.  Since it is graded by EGL it is definitely more of an M and shows more colour than my GIA K MRB cut.

Mine is yellow gold and my diamond is a K. It looks pretty white in most lights, but it still is distinctly warm and even close to champagne in some lights. I think radiants show more color than rounds, so a round K might look a little whiter. I looooove having a warm diamond! It has character. 

Here’s an example of it looking a little warmer.

I have a D color diamond and I have to say my fiancé definitely didn’t need to go that route since I have a rose gold band. You can see the rose gold through the stone and I’ve been asked if it’s a champagne diamond before. Only in sunlight or super low light (weirdly…) does it look colorless

I have a GIA J diamond set in white gold, and white gold is supposed to show more color in diamonds.  With rose gold, the contrast is supposed to make “lower” color diamonds look whiter.  I don’t think you have anything to worry about going with a J/K.  Just making sure it’s excellent cut/polish/symmetry for maximum sparkle, and get one with medium flouresence if you can without it being cloudy.  We also got my ring from James Allen, and we are so happy with the quality and with what we saved by going with a J.  Stone is J color, VS2 clarity, triple ex, .92 carats on 3.5 finger. I’ve included an outdoor pic where you can see the blue flourescence a bit (I think it’s really pretty) and an indoor pic which is the least bright white it ever looks.  Hope this helps!

I went for a GIA graded G color- I am personally really happy I picked a near colorless and I went for a triple excellent cut so the stone would be even more radiant. It really made a difference compared to other cuts I saw. I would suggest a G or H color but definitely go for an ideal/excellent cut.

nattom2018 :  Thank you! I was in love with the jacket, it was an estate piece, but it turned out to be CZs, which I wasn’t told initially. I still loved the ring, but was quite turned off by the jeweler for “not knowing” it was CZ and conveniently letting me know AFTER I had put a deposit down. I got my money back, don’t worry!

That was off topic… but definitely go for a warmer ring!!

I have a GIA certified H color against some rose gold. Shows up white or near white, but I always have the hardest time capturing it on camera!

nattom2018 :  thank you!  People with smaller fingers are lucky in that regard. I have had family/friends/coworkers tell me it looks huge, which it kind of does from certain angles.  I think it looks perfectly proportional on my hand, but I’m obviously biased. 🙂  Good luck with your ring, it will be beautiful!
