Color Grade  


The less color, the higher the evaluation. That makes it second in the scale of importance (cut being first). The first thing you need to know here is that the diamond’s color is ranging between five relevant categories. Starting with colorless making its way up to lightest. The precious stone color is graded on the scope from D-Z. The primary shade (color) you can see in a diamond is yellow, and that’s because the component nitrogen leaves a cue.

Beginning with the colorless diamonds (D-F), they are the rarest and have the highest value amongst all other colored precious stones due to their lack of color. D diamonds are practically colorless while F precious stones may have some slight color that can be viewed from different angles.

Regarding the Near Colorless Diamonds (G-J) which are missing shade in the face-up position, but when looked face down, you can detect a slight amount of color. Again, high-valuable diamonds.

D Color E Color F Color

Coming up to the more paler diamonds (K) with noticeable yellowish appearance. Here, you can detect a small amount of color when viewed in face-up position. Yet, It’s still a better option for people who look for more colorless diamonds.

Another familiar color that can be commonly detected in diamonds is brown. Brown is likewise very popular amongst precious stones due to the combination of structural disproportions and nitrogen, which results in internal graining. Diamonds with this color belong to the fancy color diamonds section.

K Color

While the most predominant color found in a diamond is yellow, it’s not uncommon for a diamond to take on a brown color. This is thought to be caused by internal graining, which results from structural irregularities often in combination with an impurity like nitrogen.
