COLOUR

Diamonds are found in nature in a wide range of colors, from completely colorless (the most desirable trait) to slightly yellow, to brown. "Fancy color diamonds" come in more intense colors, like yellow and blue, but these are not graded on the same scale.

The colour grade of a Diamond is interpreted as follows:
D, E or F are considered colorless
G, H and I are near colorless
J, K, L and M have a faint yellow tint
N, O, P, Q and R have a very light yellow tint
S, T, U, V, W, X, Y and Z are light yellow

A diamond that is a D color is absolutely colorless, and is therefore the most valuable. However, it's important to understand that color alone does not determine the value of a diamond. All '4Cs' must be taken into account. A diamond of D color that has imperfections or is poorly cut is not as valuable as a stone of a lower color grade that has a superior cut and clarity.
