Diamond Color

Color is the next important characteristic that you should look for when purchasing your diamond.  The color of a diamond refers to the lack of color that is found in the diamond grading and is based on the whiteness of the diamond.  Due to natural traces of nitrogen that are present in a diamond from being formed under the Earth's crust, most diamonds exhibit slight hints of yellow, brown, or gray.  For this reason, a diamond's color is graded on a scale from D-Z.  The less color that is visible to the naked eye, which allows more light to pass, the higher the letter the diamond is given and thus making it more valuable.  So a diamond that is graded from D-F is considered colorless, G through J are considered near-colorless, K through M are faint, and N through R are very light, and S-Z are referred to as light yellow or brown.
