Hi, i found a diamond that i am very happy about. however i need some advice from the knowledgeable here to push me to press buy. My concern is that in the cert, there is a comment of blue nuance, and i am not sure what to do of it? will it be very noticeable? or it is just the slightest blue that my fiancee wont be able to tell?

diamond in question is https://www.jamesallen.com/loose-di...rat-g-color-vs2-clarity-ideal-cut-sku-9067604
HCA is 0.6 and the cert is below

Every stone is different and will also look change its appearance in different lighting.

I posted some thoughts on my personal opinion on blue nuance in another thread recently:

There are other comments on blue nuance in this section that should come up with a search.


If you are buying as a surprise for someone, you need to check they are happy with MMD generally before buying one, and then what they think about a blue undertone if they are happy with MMD :)

My stone has blue nuance. I commented extensively about it on another thread if you search.
But, basically in a nut shell- face up, my stone looks "normal" in typical lighting. In more unique lighting situations, it can appear steely gray or light blue. This is because instead of the body color being yellow/brown/gray like most diamonds, the body color is blue. This is common for mmd grown using hpht, but very rare for earth mined stones.
Truly, it is a preference. My stone is a 2 ct J Vs2. I attached a bunch of photos in different lighting. It seems like no one has posted pictures of blue nuance lab stones here on PS yet.
