My boyfriend and I are discussing rings and I have told him that I would very much like to use my grandmothers diamond. It is a RB 1.45 ct (it was recut to Ideal in the 90''s from about 1.8 cts) VVS1 that performed very well with brilliance testing, has but there is just one problem... It is an L color based on an appraisal from 1991. I have held it up to other diamonds in the GHI category and did not see the drastic color difference that I would have expected. It does not seem "yellow" in outdoor or indoor light but I am concerned about the color. It was mined by my great-grandfather many years ago when L was a commonly set color. It would mean a lot for me to wear it but we are struggling with how to set it. I really want a halo pave setting but most designers use G/H. I also want platinum. Does anyone think this is going to seriously make the color appear worse? Any Suggestions?
