Stunning Diamonds Equivalent Colour
Diamonds come in an array of different
colours, such as pink, blue, and yellow, all of which have an effect on
price. The rarer the colour the higher the price. Most gem quality
diamonds are in the white to yellow spectrum ranging from colourless
(the absence of colour) to slightly tinted yellow. These diamonds are
graded using the alphabet starting with the letter D for colourless, and
then E, F, G...etc as the stone becomes more tinted with yellow. This
scale is only used for the spectrum of white to yellow. All other coloured or "fancy" diamonds have their own descriptions such as "Fancy
Intense Purplish Pink"!
The differences between the colours
are very subtle. For example, if you were to put a D next to an E, you
probably wouldn’t be able to see any difference, however when you view a
D next to a G you might just begin to see that one is "whiter" than the
other. The colours D, E, F, G and H are all within the top white range
and can be set in to either platinum or white gold without the contrast
of the tint being apparent.
Fluorescence is a phenomenon which can influence how the colour of a
diamond is perceived. Approximately 50% of all diamonds, when exposed to
long wave ultra violet radiation will glow a bluish colour. This can
range from "slight" to "very strong". It is sometimes advantageous to
have a certain degree of fluorescence in stones of H colour and less, as
this can make the stone appear whiter than it really is. However, strong
blue fluorescence in top white diamonds such as "D" colour can make the
stone appear a little "milky" in strong sunlight. Strong blue
fluorescent diamonds can sometimes be purchased at considerably less
than non-fluorescent stones. They are sometimes referred to as
