Choosing the right color for your diamond is based on personal preference. It is important to remember that you are generally searching for a stone with little to no color.
Diamonds come out of the earth in many different colors. Tiny traces of some elements like nitrogen can color the crystals. The market has traditionally valued white diamonds higher than others, and the grading scale reflects that.
The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) uses an alphabetical scale of D to Z.
The D grade, at the top of the scale, is considered “colorless,” rarest and most expensive. Going down the 23-grade scale from D to Z, diamonds become progressively more yellow, brown or gray.
Most diamonds sold for jewelry today are considered “near colorless” — between G and J on the color scale. At a J grade and beyond, the human eye can start to detect a yellow tint.
A D-color diamond is a rare specimen — and it costs an arm and a leg…lol!
Moving down the color scale toward H or I lets you buy a diamond that still appears white, but is more common and thus more affordable.
However, when a diamond's color is more intense than the "Z" grading, it enters the realm of a "Fancy Color" diamond. In this case, the intensity of the color in the diamond can play a significant role in its value.
P.S. Due to the rise in fashion-led trends, coloured diamonds are becoming increasingly more popular and valuable. They have become more fashionable, and “fancy” colors, when they occur naturally, are rare and expensive.
At RINGS.NG, we have a wide range of various coloured diamonds including black diamonds, which are natural diamonds that have been subjected to specialist treatments to enhance the depth of colour and contrast.
