Part of the diamonds antique charm, it does show a subtle hint of warmth when looking at the side, as is typical for diamonds from its time period. However, on the face up, the bright white reflections in the diamonds sparkle largely overwhelm the color. Looking straight down onto the stone it is hard to notice the warmth, especially when out in daylight. Generally it is in the white range of color.

The natural white gold finish gives the ring a true antique look and looks perfect with this diamond. Overall, it is a magnificent diamond, full of life and fire.
