A diamond color chart helps in grading a diamond’s color. With white diamonds you want the least amount of color possible. The more color that’s found in the diamond the less expensive it is.

Diamond Color Chart

When you’re shopping for a diamond for an engagement ring’s center stone or for other jewelry, you’ll learn about how diamonds are graded. Grading the cut, color, clarity and carat weight are all ways to judge a diamond’s value. The diamond color chart is used in one of those four to determine the gemstone’s value.

There are several groups that a diamond’s color will fall into. This grading system excludes the fancy colored diamonds such as red, green, pink, brown, etc. The diamond color grading system is important for white (clear) diamonds. With the white diamond, you want a perfectly colorless diamond. Of course, those are extremely rare, but that is the highest standard. Your diamond will have a bit of color to it that is barely noticeable to your naked eye and that amount of color is one of the things that determine how much that gemstone is going to cost.
