The difference between transparent and colored diamonds


Experts in the world of diamonds determine color by comparing diamonds with a major group of diamonds of different colours. Without comparing diamonds side by side, it is very difficult to see the difference between a D and a G.

Completely colorless diamonds (like D and E) are more rare than others which is why their price difference is higher. The main question is what is the red line that we should not cross when choosing the color of a diamond - what is the best color to have without the price of a diamond being exorbitant? The answer to this question is related to your budget and your expectations for quality.

For white or colorless diamonds (as opposed to colored diamonds, which is an entirely different story), the diamond industry has adopted an alphabetical color scale from D to Z, with D as the highest rating. The lower the grade, the more diamonds will begin to develop a yellow or brown color.
