HOW TO BUY DIAMONDS

Diamond Color

The color grade assigned to a diamond is based on the amount of color apparent in the diamond. When seen on their own, most gem quality diamonds appear to be colorless.  However, most do have a hint of color; which is normally yellow or brown due to traces of nitrogen.  The closer a diamond is to having no color, the more valuable it becomes.

WHY DOES THE COLOR VARY?

In the chaos of extreme temperature and pressure that first created the diamond, traces of elements like nitrogen and boron could have been incorporated into the diamond’s structure. These traces give the diamond its color or lack of it. Diamonds with no hint of color are very rare. However, diamonds with strong color are also rare. These are called “Fancies.” Red, pink, and blue are the most prized, but virtually all colors are possible.
