A diamond’s color is due to its composition.
The jeweler is discussing the color of the diamond, but in reality, he is referring to the color’s presence and absence. The color of a diamond is determined by the composition of the diamond and does not change over time. Colorless diamonds transmit light while colored diamonds do not. Additionally, these diamonds emit increased fire and glitter. Diamond color is determined by the way in which the gem is formed. Whiter diamonds have higher values.
Jewelers use the GIA color scale to grade the color of diamonds, which starts with the colorless D and ascends to Z for diamonds with hints of light yellow or brown. One of the most coveted and costly gems is the D to F graded diamond. These diamonds make the diamond lovers quite happy. While you can certainly find better diamonds with higher grades, they’re not necessary if you’re on a budget. The diamonds aren’t truly colorless, but to untrained eyes, they appear completely colorless.
When you are selecting a diamond’s grade, consider the setting first. If you’re using platinum or white gold for your diamond setting, go for high color grades, but you can also have good results with slightly lower color grades if you prefer yellow gold. If you are interested in a yellow tint in your diamonds, make sure to use the right setting when you set them. A lot of people prefer the lower color diamonds’ warm glow.
When long-wave ultraviolet light is applied to the diamonds, fluorescence is present. Even under most lighting conditions, this effect is invisible to the human eye. Others seek this effect, while some people prefer diamonds without it. It’s about beauty.
