Diamond Colors

The shade and intensity of a diamond’s color is directly related to its value. A perfect diamond is completely colorless without a hint of color.

The rarest diamonds are completely white – actually colorless, to be precise. But they make up less than one percent of all diamonds in the world. The rest are colored to varying degrees.

However, the laws nature bestowed these gems with their own innate individuality through a wide variety of colors, just like people making no diamond identical to the other. A diamond’s color is assessed using an international grading scale system from D (colorless) to Z (Light Yellow). This system was established by the Gemological Institute of America(GIA) in 1940.
