The 4 C’s of Diamond: Color
How do you surprise that special someone when you ask the question and open that little box with a ring inside? The answer: It should shine.
There are multiple types of diamonds with different varieties of shades including some blue, yellow and even pink. The reality is that the most important aspect before choosing an engagement ring is the color of the diamond.
It is very important to know that in a white diamond, the presence of a yellow tint will reduce its price. The lower the body color in a white diamond, the higher the true color it will reflect and therefore the higher its value.
Currently, laboratories certify the color graduation by having masterpieces to compare with the diamond and determine the grade.
The color of diamonds is measured from the letter D (Completely colorless) to the letter Z (yellow color). That is, the perfect diamond has a D grade, this is a colorless diamond, very rare to find and therefore more expensive. A grade E and F diamond is rare but easier to find than grade D, it is perfect for the discerning eye and a perfect proposition. Grades G and H are almost colorless and imperceptible to the naked eye. From the same section, grades I and J of diamonds are the best value for money, so you can have a great diamond for a great price.
