Thanks for voting and giving me your thoughts everyone. You mostly picked the Gia G which I had tried out. From these pics it looked whiter to me than the F stone I was considering. I do think the lighting was making the difference in these pics. I decided to try the F. Hopefully it will be terrific!!

What are the specs of the F stone?

If they’re pretty much the same face up, then I would get the cheaper G. But that’s me. You should do what you would be happy with.
I have been going back and forth. My last stone was a Gia G. I never saw any tint whatsoever....but it was smaller.

Sound like you’re quite color sensitive if you saw some tint in the G you saw in person. I hope the F all works out for you. Please post pics when you get it. I’m so excited for you!

First one looks the whitest but, perhaps, because it is also the smallest of all three. Between the other two, I feel like they are nearly identical as far as color - middle one being tiny, tiny bit whiter but not enough for me to prioritize it since the last one is a bit bigger so I would choose that one.

@daisygrl , the 1st stone is a 1.57 the middle is 1.66...so not sure.

What is the last one? I clearly see a size difference between the first two, all of them appear to be different sizes, going from smallest to largest (left to right).

The last is also about 1.66.

You cannot tell from photos the same way you can tell in person. Lighting and environment and the camera all make a difference. Seeing with your eyes in person is really the best way to evaluate color. And the beauty of the stone over all other ways IMO.

Interesting as I have a pretty good eye for these kinds of things. Which one did you pick?

I posted the link to the F above. The middle one... the report date is on my anniversary...maybe a good sign. :)

Thanks @missy . I am hoping that is the case here.

I have been told that there is not a lot of difference between F and G in diamond color. I think the color differences are more apparent as you go up the scale. Probably why face up the difference is even harder to discern. I doubt you can pick a loser between the three of them.

Thanks @MissGotRocks!! My last G stone was very white, but smaller and I only experienced it set in a platinum setting. The larger G, the stone on the left above, I experienced loose. It is possible had I set it, I would not have thought I was seeing a tint in the side view. I decided to try out the F instead of setting the G as the stone is a bit larger. I loved my prior G. So if I ever do upgrade I will probably go back to a G.
