#2. Better clarity and 2 grand in my pocket more than make up for a the color difference.

option 2! That’s easy. I doubt you will be able to tell the color difference in real life. Not worth the 2,000$ premium.

I would prefer option#1. The rarity of a colorless diamond–wow! The VS1 clarity will be totally eye-clean and not impact the sparkle factor in any way. The I color will show warmth, but that is not necessarily a problem if that doesn’t bother you.

Probably #2, but I prefer slightly warmer diamonds. DH would definitely pick #1 even though it’s more expensive because he is totally color sensitive and he’s way more into the “specs” than I am.

I am with gingerwillmington:
on the D colored stone if you are color sensitive at all, but if not then probably the #2 stone because I is still pretty white in my opinion!
You could plug in the specs into the HCA calculator as one of many tools to evaluate cut on the stones http://www.pricescope.com/tools/hca

2 might sparkle more because it’s a better clarity and cut, but it will have more warmth to it than the colorless 1. Put them side by side and see which one you are more drawn to

#2, I got a J triple excellent Gia certified diamond and it is very white. I learned from the bee to compromise color over specs, and it wasn’t even a compromise because my diamond doesn’t look yellow at all.

I’d go for #2 and save money. An excellent cut I color diamond will be plenty white. I actually like G-J color diamonds because they are still white but are not icey stark white. You can put that $2000 towards your wedding bands.

I guess it really depends on you? How color-sensitive are you?
I-color would personally bother me a lot, but I have an F-color diamond and next to a D-color I definitely notice the difference. I don’t think I’d want warmer than an F but again, that’s because I’m color-sensitive. It might not make as much of a difference to you.
Plenty of bees are thrilled with their warmer G/H/I-color diamonds and never notice any warmth in their day-to-day.

It would come down to whether or not color sensitivity was an issue for me. If not, I’d pick #2, if it is, then I’d happily get #1 and never lookd back. 🙂

Considering my diamond is an H and I see absolutely no warmth, I’d go with the 2nd. $2000 would definitely persuade me.

I’d go with the D colored stone If you can comfortable afford the extra $2000.
