How to assess the colour of your diamond?


Colour: While many diamonds appear colourless, or white, they may actually have subtle yellow or brown tones that can be detected when comparing diamonds side by side. Colourless diamonds are the rarest and most valuable of all. Colour variations are a result of the natural forces (i.e., temperature, pressure, trace elements) at work during the formation of diamonds within the Earth. Because subtle colour variations dramatically affect the value of a diamond, a colour grading scale is used to categorise the shading differences from one diamond to the next.

Diamonds are graded according to the GIA (Gemological Institute of America) colour chart.
