The diamond color plays an important role when buying a diamond. It largely influences the perceived sparkle and fire of a diamond.
It’s a bit counterintuitive, but the best diamond color is actually colorless, which might make you wonder why we even talk about color.
Firstly, most diamonds are not perfectly colorless. Rather their natural color ranges from barely visible to very intense shades or tints of yellow/brown. Different shades of the diamond are categorized on a diamond color scale that ranges from D to Z.
D is a perfectly colorless diamond and Z is a yellow color diamond. Side note: we are not talking about fancy colored diamonds here such as red, blue or brown diamonds.
