The color of a diamond ranges from colorless to specific fancy colors. Including Pink, Blue, Red, and Green.

Diamonds are graded on a color scale by the GIA (Gemological Institute of America).

Here are the basic color groups:

  1. Colorless
  2. Near Colorless
  3. Light Yellow, Grey, or Brown
  4. Fancy – (red, green, blue, orange, purple, pink,
    yellow, black and exotic colors like cognac, and others)
colorscale

The color evaluation of most gem-quality diamonds is based on the absence of color. A chemically pure and structurally perfect diamond has no hue, like a drop of pure water, and consequently, a higher value. GIA’s D-to-Z color-grading system measures the degree of colorlessness by comparing a stone under controlled lighting and precise viewing conditions to ‘master‘ stones of established color value.

GIA’s D-to-Z color-grading scale is the industry’s most widely accepted grading system. The scale begins with the letter D, representing colorless, and continues, with increasing presence of color, to the letter Z.

Many of these color distinctions are so subtle that they are invisible to the untrained eye; however, these distinctions make a very big difference in diamond quality and price.

A diamonds value is determined using all of the 4 C’s. Learn More.

  • "I can't say enough about Diamond Cutters. They really just blew me away. Bill (the owner) treated my fiancé and I like family, taking his time with us, and just giving us an experience that was second to none. Price wise he blew the competition out of the water. He is really dedicated to giving his customers the best deal in town and they seem to take this very seriously. They have a beautiful showroom, a large selection, and a friendly staff that includes a designer on site: if you're looking for something customized to your liking. I came away from this experience with a very positive view of Bill and Diamond Cutters, and I'll definitely be back. My advice, don't bother with Reed's or Jared... Just go to Diamond Cutters
