Diamonds are graded on a color scale established by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). A diamond’s color ranges from “D” which is no color, to Z, which is a light yellow. The closer a diamond comes to being colorless, the more valuable it is.  A diamond with “D” color on the color grade has perfect color.  When deciding on the color of your diamond, you must take into consideration the metal in which the diamond will be set in (i.e. platinum, yellow gold). If your diamond will be set in platinum, we recommend the colors “D-F,” however, if the setting you have chosen is yellow gold, we would recommend choosing a diamond ranging in color from “G-I.”  Selecting a diamond to compliment the chosen metal will enhance the overall appearance of your diamond in its setting.
