Diamonds are graded on a scale of D to Z. D colour diamonds are totally without colour while Z diamonds are a light yellow shade. Whilst many diamonds appear to be colourless, very close examination of every stone highlights subtle comparisons in the shades of their colour. No one diamond is ever the same. Truly colourless diamonds are always treasured for their rarity.
The choice of preferred colour is purely down to personal taste and budget requirements.
Coloured diamonds are referred to as ‘Fancy Colour’ diamonds and they come in a variety of colours such as pink, red, blue, green, yellow etc. These are diamonds that have gone beyond Z in the diamond whiteness alphabet, tipping the scale and in doing so entering a league of their own as rare fancy coloured diamonds. Very few coloured diamonds are of exceptional colour quality; those that are, are in a very high demand and considered seriously valuable.
