Is It a Good Idea to Purchase a D Color Diamond?

The decision to purchase a D color diamond is influenced by the purpose for which the diamond is being purchased. D-grade gems are valuable because they are difficult to come by. As a result, they make excellent long-term investment assets. If, on the other hand, you are looking for a diamond to wear on a daily basis, a D stone may not be the best value for your money. If you are looking for a less expensive stone that is equally beautiful, look no further.

Diamonds of the D color grade are the most expensive stones available on the diamond color scale. Choosing whether or not to purchase these diamonds comes down to what you want the diamond to serve as a focal point of your jewelry collection. If you decide to purchase a D color rock to add to your investment portfolio, the investment will be well worth it. If you're buying a diamond for an engagement ring, on the other hand, you might be better off going with a diamond that's a little darker on the color scale.

It is not because D color gems are the most brilliant on the color spectrum that they are the most expensive; rather, it is because they are the most rare. They are expensive because they are difficult to come by. Because of their scarcity, they are also a good store of value. When looking for an investment opportunity or a high-ticket item for trade, D color diamonds will meet that criterion perfectly.

It is only a trained gemologist who can tell the difference between a D color diamond and an E or F color diamond based on their appearance alone. Even G and H stones will appear colorless to the untrained eye, regardless of their composition. For those looking for a diamond for an engagement ring, it may be more prudent to find a less expensive gem in the same color range. The stone will have the same appearance as the D color diamond but will be significantly less expensive. As a result, E to G rocks will provide a better value for your money.
