colorless

In general, the highest quality diamonds are totally colorless, whereas lower quality diamonds can often have a slight yellow tint. Diamond color is measured using Gemological Institute of America, or GIA color scale which goes from D (colorless) all the way to Z (light yellow or brown in color).

Best Diamond Color: The naked eye can't tell between "colorless" D-F diamonds and the slight yellow tint of grades G-J. Setting and style matter, too. Colorless diamonds need a white gold or platinum band to enhance their icy appeal, while yellow gold complements to G-J grade ones. Keep reading to learn the smart rules to shop by.

Highly valued diamonds do not have any color. Hence, the more the color, that is brown or yellow, the lesser the grade. However, brown or yellow colors that are beyond Z grade attracts astronomical prices. This is because they have the properties of “fancy” colors. Green, blue, and pink diamonds also falls under the “fancy” category.

A yellow or rose gold setting will hide a faint yellow tint in a diamond. In fact, G-J diamonds will appear mostly colorless against a gold setting. However, if you choose a white gold or platinum setting, it’s best to stay in the colorless or near colorless range. Remember, the best color for a diamond is the one that appeals to you.

The D color grade is the highest quality color grade a diamond can receive, and can reasonably be called the “best color” for a diamond. However, it’s a little more complicated than that. While a D color diamond is undoubtedly the best in terms of color, the difference in price between a D color diamond and a diamond with a lower color grade but near identical appearance can often be huge.

A well-cut round diamond in the I color grade will look good set in any metal, including platinum and white gold. Although the diamond itself won’t be colorless, the cut of the diamond does an excellent job of disguising the color, meaning it will appear colorless once it’s set in a ring.

To most untrained eyes, the G and H colors would face up white if the diamonds are well cut. For consumers who want to get the most bang for their buck, these are the best color grades to get a good balance between icy white appearances and affordable costs.

So that’s my definition of good quality: SI1, G-H (you won’t see inclusions with the unaided eye; like black carbon spots or clouds, and the color of the diamond is white, Versus yellow or brown).

Diamonds come in a variety of colors, some of them highly prized (pinks, blues, even yellow). However in a white diamond, the presence of a yellow tint will lower the price of a diamond. The less body color in a white diamond, the more true color it will reflect, and thus the greater its value.

Not sure what the best color for your diamond engagement ring is? We recommend H as a safe bet. H is the most popular color choice in the American diamond market. It offers a good balance of price while still providing the icy-white nature that a lot of people prefer in their diamonds.

A K, L or M grade diamond set in yellow gold is a good choice if you are concerned about price. Keep in mind that even if your diamond is colorless, if its cut is poor, the stone’s brilliance will be lost. Always pay close attention to cut because its proportions are an important determinant of diamond sparkle. Don’t focus blindly on color.

A G colored diamond will give you tremendous value for your money and it will look icy white in every case. Only if you hold a D colored diamond ring directly next to the G colored ring will you realize that the G colored diamond is not as white as humanly possible. This won't happen in every day life though so save your dollars!

The color of a yellow diamond can vary from dusky brown to an intense vibrant yellow. The most sought after yellow diamonds are known as canary diamonds, due to their bright hue like the bird that shares its name. The brighter yellows can often command a higher value than duskier shades of yellow.

If you’re buying a diamond for the first time, you’ve probably done at least some research. You might have your heart set on a certain diamond shape, or know which settings will complement it well. If you’ve really done your homework, you probably also know that gemologists grade diamonds based on the 4 C’s (clarity, color, cut, and carat). Clarity is the absence of imperfections ...

Diamond color is graded by evaluating the body color of the diamond on a pure white background, face down. Gemologists will compare the diamond to master stones, or a GIA-verified set of cubic zirconia, with grade color shading. If the diamond has more yellow than one but less than the other, it will receive a grade in that range.
