I am thinking of purchasing a Whiteflash ACA in K or L color, under a carat. What color gold would be most suitable? And is an L color going to show a lot of color? Any pictures of either color would be great! Thanks!

A K and L will show some tint. I think it wont be as obvious in the smaller L's but it will not be bright white.

Not sure if you are looking at the same size K? I think a K/L would be a good starter stone. In the future you

can move up in size (if you're good with the tint), or move up in color if its a little too much tint. I own a J ACA and

I do see the tint in it especially in my house with taupe walls. Outside and in stores, I dont see it as much.

Maybe you could ask for a picture of a K, an L, and a color you are familiar with so you can see the difference.

These pics show the diamonds in profile but may be helpful

Hopefully other PSers will be by to post face-up shots of their K and L diamonds.

Not sure if you already came across these, but here are links to a few related PS threads which have some photos of K/L super-ideal diamonds:

Do you already know what kind of setting you’d like? You could do a white metal for the prong/head to help with the color face up and then whichever other color you prefer for the shank - assuming it’s for a ring :D

My original e-ring was yellow gold. No lab certs but the stone has been appraised as J or K. I had it reset in platinum and see less tint than I did when it was set it yellow. It’s my avatar pic. I’m assuming you are trying to minimize the possible tint?

Some type of solitaire, 6 prong.

Why hide the tint in a well cut stone its going to be fun watching it go from tint to brightness to color from fire?
