Why we say the most dominant color is because a gemstone can have more colored tints. For instance a purplish-pink diamond, which is a pink diamond with some purple tint. But this tint is not the hue, the hue is really the primary color of the gemstone. This hue can be very intense meaning the saturation of the gemstone. If the saturation of for example a pink diamond is very intense the value is much more than a light saturation. In addition, the tone of the colored diamond represents how light or dark a stone appears and distribution refers how evenly the color is spread in the body of the diamond. Thus, the hue, saturation, tone, and distribution are the major players in the diamond price of colored diamonds.
