Colours of Diamond

Diamonds come in an array of colours, depending on the trace elements found within the stone. 

Coloured diamonds, classified as fancy diamonds, come in a range of colours, including yellow, pink, blue and even black. 

When looking at white diamonds, however, the higher quality stones have the least amount of colour. This is because they are able to reflect more light, and therefore are of greater value. 

White diamonds and fancy diamonds are graded on two separate colour scales. 

The Gemmological Association of Australia (GIA) assigns a colour grade to our white diamonds after they are examined in an environment which specifically eliminates colour from surrounding surfaces, as well as the light source itself. 

These diamonds are categorised on a scale ranging from D-Z:
