I could really see her in 18k too. The rich gold would be beautiful with her yellow undertones. Of course you didn't ask about that at all. My L diamonds play so nice in yellow gold. She is also pretty in her setting now. Just an idle thought.

So happy you decided to keep her, @Tigerlilyrosepetal!
The pics above are just amazing! Betty is such a chameleon, and I just love that she’s showing off her really lovely facet pattern and colors in pics #1 and 4❤️❤️
Keep the pics coming and would love to see a video, if possible! Thanks for posting more pics of Betty❤️
So I am happy to share some videos of Betty @maita13! I was out on a walk with my dog and the light was great, although frigid!

So... I just realized I can’t share a video! Bummer, I was so excited. But I will post more pics of the ever-changing colors. 780211E9-4AB1-4909-B6B5-4A0E60768B4F.jpeg

Your diamond is beautiful and I really like it with the gold band in the middle, it gives it that two-tone look which fits well with your diamond as it shifts back and forth between leaning yellow and white in different environments. I really feel like the gold band helps tie it all together. And Betty suits it perfectly! Enjoy :)

I just wanted to give an update. I decided that I will not upgrade color after all. I love her! I am going to keep this stone. I appreciate all of your comments-so helpful! I have really been paying attention to her chameleon-like color changes with varying lights and it is amazing! Thought I’d share the light show. Enjoy! 3776D93A-A310-4217-B74E-71FD62CD21DF.jpeg 0B74CFA9-B08F-45C7-A25B-55B7F841C2C5.jpeg 3504956A-8D74-4489-B469-3698693E44B5.jpeg B9D6F615-6DA2-404A-BC84-084D8DF6B076.jpeg CACA070B-198E-4369-B819-43BD7A282599.jpeg 526E1E96-D56D-4B98-92B3-16510CEA033D.jpeg DFE6DC35-D07B-4F67-94BB-2A6FC4AE2B99.jpeg 5C49670F-A0B1-4AA5-9DC0-2DC158C525E2.jpeg AD8E9974-C5BE-4E22-8F09-111E563DF284.jpeg 651FDC0A-3AC6-4B8B-923C-C1527AC0F5BD.jpeg Every day it’s different. I wanted to share some of the various pics. I also have decided to name her Betty.

Betty is beautiful! Your photos demonstrate perfectly what chameleons lower coloured diamonds are! I have an N AVC and trying to describe the colour is impossible because it constantly changes as shown by your photos! I love everything about your diamond and your setting is just dreamy! :kiss2: And as another poster said, there's no such thing as too many photos on PS. ;)2

Thank you all for appreciating Betty. I had some free time today so went through my recent pics of her. Colorful gal. The one that has the pink in it surprised me-until I realized I had a red shirt on that day and she picked up pinkish colors from it!

I think it's gorgeous!

Mine is K color but it's zoned (darker in some places than others). After a couple of years, that started to bug me. But I do love its large size and also don't want to spend for a similar size in a higher color grade. I'm also pickier about my e-ring than I am about my other jewelry.

So what I finally settled on is to have the diamond re-set into a (yellow gold) bangle bracelet, which I plan to wear every day. Then I ordered a large lab sapphire that I'm going to have made into an e-ring instead, for my next anniversary.

Cool! Thinking of re-setting it too. I wasn’t at first-but I realize that buying a setting first—and then the diamond is tricky.

Betty is to die for! If you ever think about parting with her, just send her my way! OP in modern cuts is too yellow and not yellow enough
for me. In old cuts warmth is so beautiful and always welcome. I wear warmer old cuts a lot too. My fave.

Thanks Sunstorm! I love your avatar diamond. I bought this not knowing a whole lot about antique diamonds but learning so much here and appreciating all of the shades. That yellow of your diamond is gorgeous!!!
