The color in a range of H thru J is pretty decent. Colors G thru I show almost no color to the untrained naked eye.
I would suggest a quick glance at the clarity ratings here:Diamond Buying Guide : Diamond Clarity
This will help you with your choice. I'm a Graduate Gemology student, so I'm happy to answer any questions you have about diamond buying if you want it.
thanx for the chart

I have a 0.75 ct RB diamond I inherited that's graded as an SI1 and I can see the inclusions in it without a loupe. It doesn't bother me in that stone but it would bother me if it was my ering. So even SI grade stones aren't always eye-clean, hence my concern for you about stones graded in the I (included) category.
What is overstock's return policy? So many people seem to have had such good experiences with them...maybe when you get the ring you'll find it has relatively "clean" I clarity stones and you can't see the inclusion. The ring itself is so beautiful and unique. But if it turns out you don't like the quality of the stones, then maybe you can return it? And continue your search?

I might get mike's ring from overstock, but it will be a tungsten band with no stones.
