When it comes to the importance of diamond characteristics, it is diamond colours that can be a little overwhelming and confusing. There is already a great deal to think about when it comes to finding a beautiful diamond ring without worrying if you are choosing the right or wrong coloured diamond.
Let’s try and take you through the ins and outs of the different diamond colours to help you choose a diamond that you will be able to cherish for years to come.
There are some common misconceptions and misunderstandings about the colour of a diamond and what effect it has on the beauty and value of the stone.
The different Diamond Colours
One critical thing to know about diamonds is that no gem-sized natural diamond is absolutely perfect.
The whole point of a diamond is how it stands as a symbol of rarity, value and longevity.
This is why a diamond ring symbolises a love that is rare, priceless and timeless.
There are a number of different diamond colours which include:
· Pink (through to purple)
That is quite a variety of colours on offer, but what do those different diamond colours mean
The meaning of different Diamond Colours
The colour of a diamond refers to how clear or how yellow it is. As a general rule, the highest quality diamonds are colourless and lower quality ones often have a yellow tint.
Diamond colours are measured on the GIA colour scale that ranges from D (the colourless) and down to Z (light yellow or brown coloured).
There are distinctly coloured diamonds such as blue, pink and yellow which are highly prized. However, in white diamonds, a tint of yellow is not considered desirable.
Diamonds that have a slight colouring will reflect less natural colour of the light back to the eye. This is why a more colourless diamond is usually more radiant, valuable and unique.
This means that depending on the shade of colour and how intense that colour, it will either add or detract in the diamond’s value.
The famous Hope Diamond is valued extremely highly because of its intense blue colour.
Finding the right diamond colour for you
Probably the most important factor to keep in mind when you are buying a diamond ring is to keep to your budget.
