The best color for a diamond is no color. It is the totally colorless diamond that acts as the best prism for light to pass through effortlessly through the diamond, transforming into magnificent brilliance.
The color grading scale goes from totally colorless to light yellow. The differences between one grade and another are very subtle, as can be seen by the number of grades within any one category.
Diamonds are graded on a color scale established by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) which ranges from D (colorless) to Z (Yellow).
Color differences are very subtle and it is very difficulty to see. Take the following stones pictured above. On the Left we have a D color, which has no color and is the best possible “color” you can achieve. On the Right, we have a J color which is just at the end of the “Near Colorless” scale.
Colors are graded under controlled lighting conditions and are compared to a master set for accuracy. As you can see in the image above, the color difference is subtle, but noticeable. It is up to the buyer what color is best suitable for their personal taste.
Truly colorless stones (D) are rare and consequently very valuable. Color ultimately comes down to personal taste and preference. Ask a jeweler to show you a verity of colors to ensure you’re finding the best loose diamond for your jewelry or engagement ring.
Nature has also created diamonds in intense shades of blue, green, yellow orange, pink or the rarest of them all red. These diamonds are called ‘colored Fancies’ and are extremely rare and highly treasured.
