Diamond Color

Are you aware that discovering a diamond with no color at all is quite rare? In fact, practically any color that occurs naturally may be found in diamonds, including pink, gray, white, yellow, green, and even green. It is typically advised to choose a diamond with the least bit of color while looking for one. Five broad types of diamond color are distinguished on a scale from D to Z. (colorless, near colorless, faint, very light and light).

Are you uncertain of the best diamond color? All of it Begins With Your Budget.

The most valuable and rarest type of diamond is one that lacks color. While most of our customers select a D or E color grade, many opt for a stunning near colorless grade to stretch their dollars further and purchase the greatest cut they can afford (which gives them more sparkle).

Diamond Color Recommendations Considering Shape and Setting

Some fancy-shaped diamonds can be up to 25% less expensive than round-cut diamonds while concealing color better than others. It’s also a good idea to think about the precious metal color for your setting that best matches the diamond’s color grade. For instance, yellow gold emits a warm glow and could be paired with Near Colorless (G-J) saving extra dollars. A colorless diamond will appear icier if it is set in platinum or white gold. The size, shape, and setting preferences of the diamond you are considering will play a role in your decision regarding whether or not you want to spend extra on the diamond color grade.

Almost all of our Engagement Rings can be customized with metal colors such as Yellow Gold, Rose Gold, White Gold and Platinum.
