H vs K Color Diamond Engagement Ring

For more details on diamond color, read:

When it comes to buying diamonds, most people wonder whether a H diamond is too yellow or whether a K diamond is too yellow for their needs. If you are one of these people, you are at the right place.

In this video, we compare a near colorless H diamond engagement ring beside a faint yellow K diamond engagement ring in various lighting scenarios.

Through this comparison, you will be able to see for yourself whether the H or K diamonds are white enough or too yellow. Personally, I find the H to face up completely white when it is well cut.

In certain angles and lighting, the K does show a very very faint hint of color and on this note, I have a very sensitive eye for color nuances. To most people, color differences will not be immediately obvious.

So, watch the video a couple of times and pause it if need be to get a better look. After that, leave a comment below to let me know if you think the H and K diamonds appear yellow or white to you. Also, let me know if you would buy either colors for your engagement ring or you would totally avoid both of them completely.
