Hi everyone! I am looking for a little reassurance (hopefully). My boyfriend (with my mothers help) got a great deal on an emerald cut diamond. It is 2.76 VVS2 excellent cut and I color. It will be set in a white gold, thick banded solitaire setting. Should I be worried about the color? I have read that emerald cuts should be H or better because of the way they are cut but is there really a noticeable difference? Honestly, I am grateful to have anything but I am curious. Please be honest! Thanks in advance for your help!

HI1
Congratulations!!

Good thing you're asking questions though...
1) who graded the diamond ( right answer =GIA)
2) Who called it "EXCELLENT CUT"? I ask because there is no such grade agreed upon by the trade.

Hi sorry yes to GIA cert. and the "excellent" came from the jeweler of course!! :) Only because she said the length and width were good for an emerald cut not too shallow or deep...I guess for her taste. (She is my mothers jeweler for a few years and we do trust her for the most part) But the color is what might bother me what do you think??

Are you sensitive to diamond color?
Not all people are.
Can you view the stone in person?
What type of setting is it going into?

You don't wear the certificate on your finger... you wear the diamond on your finger. What the certificate says about the color is irrelevant to the beauty of it when you are looking at it. I've seen gorgeous J emerald cuts I would wear in a heartbeat.

It just depends on your eyes and your own preferences. If he has a return policy, make sure you get to wear the ring for a couple days in all kinds of lighting (keep it very clean it will help) and see what you think, while it is within the return period.

If you love it, perfect. If you don't go back and find something that suits you better!

Can you post some pics though? I'd love to see it!

The EC diamond and ring sound lovely. I agree it depends on your color sensitivity and what lighting you are in. I hope you'll post pictures so we can all see it.

This! I personally have a K colored asscher and it shows very little warmth to the naked eye. About 98% of the time, the diamond is a bright white to my eye! :)

Some people LOVE their XYZ diamonds.
Others claim they are bother by the color they detect in an F.

It doesn't matter what anyone else thinks.
You have to wear it so be sure you get a diamond YOU are happy with.

Look at it, top view AND side view, in many different environments under many kinds of lighting.
If you don't like the color YOU see then return it.
If you cannot return it then it is the most beautiful diamond in the world.

I also have an I colored asscher, and the only time I ever see any warmth is if I look through the pavillion on an overcast day, other than that it always looks very white to me. :))
