What is Diamond Colour?

Diamond Colour Examples

Diamond colour refers to the lack of colour in diamonds. The higher the colour grade (D is highest grade) the more colourless a diamond is.

  • "D": Exceptional white. Colourless diamonds are the most desirable since they allow the most refraction of light (sparkle). 'D' is Pure White - the most prized colour.
  • "E","F","G": Rare White. Special whiteness and purity with no tint of colour. A specialist trained eye could only tell the difference between exceptional white and special whiteness / rare white.
  • "H": Good white brightness with slight tint of colour (usually yellow or brown). Diamonds of this colour offer you an excellent combination of quality and value. Compared to a higher colour graded diamond there will be a slight noticeable difference.

Diamonds graded D through F are naturally the most valuable and desirable because of their rarity. But you can still obtain very attractive diamonds that are graded slightly less than colourless.
