Hi! Is that a cushion cut or a RB? I’m asking because the two shapes hide color very differently. Cushion and radiant cuts tend to hold on to color the most among all diamond shapes. This means that these cuts will show the most color and it’s advisable to go higher up in the color scale for the yellow tint to not be obvious. The lowest you can go for a cushion/ radiant cut diamond with no yellow ptint is probably a G. H if you’re lucky. Anything below an H will show the yellow tint. 

On the other hand, a RB cut hides color very well. Hence, you can go lower in color and you will not see the yellow tint as much as you would in the cushion/ radiant. For a RB cut, you can go to a K and it will not look too yellow (compared to the cushion/ radiant cut at least). I think for a RB cut you can definitelly go as low as a K. I would however, advise a J color and above for an RB. 

Different diamond shapes hide and highlight different things so priorities are different for different shapes.

It is a nice diamond and a beautiful ring, doesn’t look like a K on the pictures. However I was focused on color so so much when we got my ring, I didn’t consider anything besides D or E. I got an E. Now I’m thinking maybe I could have gone bigger and I miss a lil’ character. Mine looks like it’s made out of clear glass. I love the whiteness of course but I wish we had different rings for different moods/days! haha

Your ring is absolutely gorgeous!! I can’t tell my the photos that it’s a K at all.  The setting is very similar to the ring I’ve picked out (don’t have it yet).  It looks perfect on your hand!
