There are a variety of colors to choose from when it comes to diamonds if you’ve never purchased one before. According to the diamond color chart, most diamonds have a faint yellow or brown tint that can range in intensity from barely perceptible to glaringly obvious. For the most part, fancy colored diamonds aren’t the only diamonds that can be colored, but the less color you can see in a diamond, the more expensive it will be. In many cases, the color and clarity of a diamond are enhanced when it is set in yellow gold. As a result, even a diamond with a lower color grade may appear to be of higher quality.

Advanced Diamond Coloring Information

Diamond quality is determined by its color, and thus, color is one of the four Cs of diamond quality that must be considered when selecting any diamond, regardless of its setting in yellow gold, white gold, rose gold or platinum. Color is one of the most subjective aspects of diamond quality, unlike cut and clarity. Colored diamonds, such as yellow diamonds, blue diamonds, and pink diamonds, are sought after by many people, despite their rarity.

Although color is an important factor in determining the quality and price of a diamond, it is not the only factor that determines its value. Colorless diamonds are rarer and reflect more light, making them appear to be more radiant because of this.

How to Determine a Diamond’s Color

The color of a diamond is assigned a letter from D to Z. D, a colorless diamond, and Z, a diamond that is light yellow or brown in hue. D and Z Fancy colored diamonds have a color richer than Z or that is different from yellow or brown.

The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) has established this standard for grading all diamond gemstones. As a result, any diamond color graded by the GIA is guaranteed to be uniform in quality. So we can recommend specific color grades for specific cuts, carat sizes, settings and styles because of this consistency.

Understanding the diamond color scale and how the various color grades appear, from a G to a K, will assist you in selecting the ideal diamond for your yellow gold jewelry.. Read on to learn more..

When and Where Do Diamonds Become Colorful?

In the presence of nature, it is rare to find a chemically pure diamond that is made entirely of carbon. Natural gases such as boron and nitrogen give diamonds a tinge of color as they form beneath the surface of the earth.

Nissan, David and his team were extremely accommodating, understanding and patient with our purchase. They took the upmost care to find the best solution for our needs and went above and beyond normal ‘customer service’ standards. I have absolutely no qualms recommending their products and services. Both were absolutely flawless. I will continue to sing them praises and will most definitely purchase from them again in the future. Thank you again!

Bought a beautiful stone here for an engagement ring. I was a little apprehensive since you’re buying something unseen. But Cid made it easy. In fact, Nissan, the owner also gave a call to make me more comfortable. They sent me the stone to take to a local jeweler with only my Amex in case I bailed on them.
