Hi everyone!

I would like to thank all the wonderful PS members who had welcomed me when I first joined PS, and contributed so generously when I asked for advice in my diamond search... :wavey:

All the time reading and educating myself on Pricescope was definitely well-spent as I have learned so much from all the experts and experienced members! The most important lesson I've learned is not to compromise on CUT. Anyway, I have finally bought my diamond and just had it set today into the classic Tiffany setting style. Was going to post photos & details in the "J Color Stones in Platinum" thread but realised it was closed...so here I am with a new thread. Hopefully the info. will help other members in their diamond search too!

Here are the specs of my diamond:

4.01 ct
J, VS1
GIA Triple Excellent
Table: 58%
Depth: 60%
Crown: 34 degrees
Pavilion: 40.6 degrees
Girdle Thickness: Medium (faceted) 3%
Star Length: 45%
Lower Girdle: 80%
Fluorescence: Medium Blue
HCA Score: 0.7

Overall, I am really glad that I prioritise cut, went for a warmer color and achieved the size that I want. The VS1 clarity was a bonus as I was actually prepared to go lower to VS2. I must say that PS threads on AGS being possibly "softer" on color grading made me think really really hard about getting a AGS graded J stone...I have seen GIA-graded J stones and knew that I could accept the slight warmth in GIA-J. As it turns out, my diamond faces up beautifully bright and full of life...I absolutely adore my ring and couldn't be happier! :love:

What a giant rock! It looks gorgeous on your hand. :appl:

I'm also considering buying a J diamond, and would like to get your thoughts on the color. How visible is the warm color to you, especially compared to other diamonds?

Hi Mochiko,

The warmth in a J diamond is definitely visible to me as I am color sensitive and could pick out little nuances of color differences. Over the years of visiting B&M stores/jewellers and having the chance to view J color stones in real life, I would say that I love the slight warmth of J color diamond, as opposed to the icy white D,E,F. I have also been fortunate enough to view some warmer than J colors, particularly K,L,M...and figured out that I would like my diamond to be not warmer than J in terms of color.

The stone on my engagement ring is a 1 ct GIA-G color without fluorescence, and I took some comparison pics to show the slight color difference between G and J...hope this helps!
