A true H color will NOT appear yellow to anyone, even an expert. The lighting in the stores may be improper, or the grading on the stones may be very wrong. H is a very nice color, not anything to do with visibly yellow.

You can get the AGA Cut Class grade on my website in the DIY, Do It Yourself, cut grading section.

H-color diamonds are in the top half of the "near-colorless" category on the color grading scale, so they should definitely look pretty white face up, especially if cut well. Personally, I think H looks white even in a white gold or platinum setting.

If the H mall diamonds you saw looked "very yellow" they were probably either misgraded or terribly cut.

Let me just say from personal experience that an H from Rhino is just outstanding.

Thanks to everyone who helped me. I purchased the stone today. I tried to post all my reports but was not successful.

I also will chime in to say that my H&A H color from GOG looks white in its white gold setting

I don't have pictures yet, I will try to see if I can get one from the vendor. I don't have a digital camera.
