Hello!
I'm wondering what a .63 would look like on a size 6.5 finger?
I could sacrifice on color and drop down to "J" and go with a .72 or so, as opposed to this .63 "I"
What would you do--drop down to a "J" to go up .10 in carat size, or stay at .63 and stay at "I" in color?

Thanks for opinions.
The stone I am looking at with Jonathan at GOG is here:

J is quite white in that size and .10 also can really show in those sizes so I would choose J. Are the stones equal depths? that would play a role in my decision because a shallow .63 and a deep .73 could possibly measure very close.

ETA- Also 3/4 ct is such a sweet spot for many people. it's a great size for an e-ring.

I think I'd prefer the larger J.

If you're considering the I, I'd reserve it. Sometimes diamonds get bought out from under people when posted here.

lol I thought about that when I posted the link. I'll erase it.
Thanks you two for your input. I was leaning your way, anyway.

I went from an H to J to get more size and I am not regretting it. My J always looks incredibly white in most circumstances. And who says a little warmth is a bad thing :twirl:

Only you can really make this judgment call. See ideal cut I and J stones in person to make sure you are cimfortablevwith the color before you pull the trigger.

I would rather have the larger well-cut J stone. I have a small .46 J and it looks white *to me* when its stand alone.

I would talk to ID Jewelry and see what they can find you in your budget.

I would definitely go for the larger stone--J color is still super white!!! You really won't notice the color difference, but you will notice the larger size!

.63 is closer to a half-carat and .73 is closer to three-quarter carat. I like larger!
