Whiter stone

This is interesting to me because my 55 table and deeper stone diamond is very bright, I think more than my Super ideal with a 57.4 table and shallower. So is it the added “whiteness” of the 55’s E vs the 57’s H?
You have an E stone vs a H stone. Im pretty sure the E will be whiter regardless of the table size. Probably table size etc. really only comes into play inthe same Color Grade (plus/minus one color grade).

I think what it is meant by bigger table=white stone is that the bigger table might optically distract from yellow-ish hue that is observable to the naked eye when a diamond faces up. H will always be an H and E will always be an E. With super-ideals, the amount of fire and brilliance also might optically cover up the color as people will be more focused on the sparkle than the color. It is a little trick, if you will, that super-ideals provide so that one does not needlessly have to spend money on the color. Thus, for many people, it is recommended to increase the size and sacrifice the color.

I prefer smaller (55 max) tables for F and up colors and bigger for G and down. Now, I color is where most people start to notice the tint so I am not sure if the large table would work for more tinted diamonds.

I wanted to share these pictures because the sparkle factor on this stone is insane! This is a stone that could represent WF in a super ideal beauty pageant. It lights up the couch! :-o:kiss2: C840A188-8082-482A-B778-1DA5F50E7C66.jpeg

Thank you @Dmndsr4evr11! It's Whiteflash's semi-custom Elegant head setting in 14k gold (their standard is 18k rose gold) with a 6 prong platinum head. :)
So it’s this One?


Can I ask why you did 14k gold?

Whiteflash has so many that look so similar l— elegant, half round, knife edge... I’m having a hard time figuring out the differences.

I think I’m going to have mine reset in one of these in yellow gold with a white metal prongs.

Yes, that’s the one!

Honestly, the 14k rg was a mistake. I asked for a quote in 14k rg without realizing they would make it as requested. I would have been fine with their stock 18k rg as my wedding band is 18k. Both are lovely and I don’t notice a big difference. Whiteflash just went out of their way to deliver a ring exactly as I requested!

@Lessics you are so sweet to ask! I adore the diamond and am so happy with it all around. The sparkle is INCREDIBLE and the color no longer bothers me! The only thing I would upgrade in the future may be the size or perhaps an even higher color. A 3 ct H VS ACA would run +$17k more so if the 2.5 H VS1 ACA turns out to be my final upgrade, I consider myself a very lucky girl! I wouldn’t have chosen this beauty without the help of our amazing PS community. Thank you to all of you for sharing your excitement, expertise and experience. I am so grateful!

I just have to say that is one of the most incredible photos ever! I've looked at a lot of fire photos - every single one is unique and magical. But I have never seen a diamond radiating like the sun, burning with nuclear fission from it's white hot core. :geek2::kiss2:

Thank you, @Texas Leaguer! It is easy to capture the fire on this beauty. I used a simple camera phone - no filter - and the stone was likely smudged from life with a toddler. Even its brilliance indoors is remarkable. It is an incredible diamond and working with Brittany and the rest of your team has been a joy. I look forward to upgrading my earrings in the future. THANK YOU!

Well, I just finished catching up from when I last posted on your thread and am delighted to see that you were able to get the H stone set and on your hand! It is sooo gorgeous and it looks so bright and white, too! :love: Realistically, that is a great size. It still looks huge on your finger, and I think it's perfect in cut, color, clarity, and size! So happy this worked out for you!

Thank you @diamondseeker2006! It's definitely the most beautiful diamond I have owned although I've come to appreciate the different personalities of my previous diamonds! There's something magical that happens to a stone when all 4 C's are excellent and converge into sparkle perfection. I better not spend too much time on Pricescope tho. Too many tempting beauties! :lol:

Thank you, @VeryUndecided! :)

I. Hear. You. That whole super white / super clean / super ideal cut convergence is luxury and perfection personified. I am SO glad you went for the quality you did. This is a next-level stone and a gorgeous ring.

Congratulations. Great choice.
