Diamond Color Comparisons

The diamonds are turned into upside down position because the color is more visible this way. It's actually very difficult to tell color differences kept diamonds face-up.

When a diamond is mounted on a ring, people will only notice be it from the face-up side.

Here's what you're looking at:

The diamonds in the top row are D-F, or colorless, diamonds. You shouldn't see any yellow in the interior. Any yellowness you see around the edges is due to purely external factors like lighting or reflections off the photographer.
The second row is G-I or near colorless diamonds. This is the range we recommend for the best value for your money.

The bottom row is graded J and K. While J is still available in near-colorless" situation. The diamonds of this range are not safe to buy.


Are Colorless Diamonds Worth The Premium?

Colorless diamonds (D, E, F) are priced according to their availability that how rare they are. D diamonds are completely colorless, whereas  F diamonds have tiny trace amounts of color only seen by an experienced in practice gemologist. But people like us can’t recognize the difference.
Especially since diamonds on rings are only admired face-up and reflect light back into the viewer's eyes.

Why G-I Gives The Most Bang For Your Buck

Tip: If you're buying from an Online Diamond Store without photos and feel REALLY unsure, G-H is a safe bet.

 You'll pay more, without being confident about it. That is why we recommend you to be open-minded and not be so blind to trust anyone for this purchase.
