If you want to know about the best color diamond for your money, then here we have a guide for you that works best for you. Diamonds can come in various colors, and I think you must know that a scale of diamond color ranges from D to Z. D means completely colorless, and Z means heavily tinted with yellow. The color possibilities in diamond are black, grey, white, purple, pink, red, orange, brown, yellow, olive, green and blue. So while buying Color Diamonds, what we have to consider is the main question. But you do not have to worry as here is the answer.
Color intensity, the richness or deepness of color is the most vital consideration while buying a colored diamond. The rarity and value are more if the color of the diamond is intense. But make sure you pick the natural color diamond.
After color grade, the second thing is carat weight that has an impact on the price. During mining of diamond, large gems are found less frequently compared to the small once. It makes large diamonds more valuable than the small one. Due to this reason, the colored diamond prices rise rapidly with carat weight.
Clarity of a colored diamond is less important than the colorless diamond due to the nature of colored diamonds. It is true because inclusions tend to be covered by the color of a diamond.
Colored diamonds are cut to highlight their color, and they are total contrasts with colorless diamonds which cut that are cut to maximize brilliance or sparkle. In some instances, it can affect the natural color of a colored diamond. But for a colored diamond, color is the most important criteria, and hence color is considered first while cutting the diamond.
On the one hand, cut describes a diamond’s dimensions, light performance, and finish; on the other hand, shape (e.g., round, princess, marquise, oval, square, etc.) regards the overall outline of the diamond when observed from the top. However, note that many colored diamonds cut into non-traditional shapes to improve their natural color. Due to the rareness of colored diamonds, it is possible that specific shape may be not present in a specific shape at a given time, but if you can wait then, you will surely find it.
Pick the diamond which is certified independently, analyzed and graded by the GIA-Gemological Institute of America. It is most respected laboratories in the diamond enterprise. Always look for origin report that accompanied with diamond. This report listed the specification, color grade, natural origin of the diamond.
Setting Colored Diamonds
For a colored diamond, always choose a setting material that enhances the natural color of the diamond. For example, choose rose gold for pink diamonds and for yellow diamonds to choose yellow gold as setting metal. For brown diamonds choose white metals to pair or accompanied with yellow gold or rose gold. Blue diamonds always set in white metal to highlights their color.
