Color is normally present in a diamond as a pale yellow. This is why a diamond's color grade is based on its lack of color. The less color a diamond has, the higher its color grade. After cut, color is generally considered the second most important characteristic when selecting a diamond. This is because the human eye tends to detect a diamond's sparkle first, and color second.
At Lovida Diamonds, you'll find only the finest diamonds with color graded D-J. Diamonds graded J or better are colorless or near-colorless, with color that is typically undetectable to the unaided eye.
DAbsolutely colorless. The highest color grade. Extremely rare.
E-FColorless. Minute traces of color can be detected by an expert gemologist. A rare diamond.
G-HNear-colorless. Color difficult to detect unless compared side-by-side against diamonds of better grades.
I-JNear-colorless. A slightly detectable warmth or tone.
K-MNoticeable color. Not carried by Lovida Diamonds.
N-ZNoticeable color. Not carried by Lovida Diamonds.
What Color is Right for Me?
For the purist, look for a colorless diamond with a grade of D-F for a diamond with no discernible color.
For an excellent value in a diamond with little or no noticeable color to the unaided eye, look for a near-colorless grade of G-I
Now that you understand how color affects the white look of a diamond, you are ready to learn about clarity.
