What Is the Diamond Color Scale? 

Choosing the ideal diamond for an engagement ring may be both exciting and intimidating. Choosing your preferred diamond shape is just the start.
It's crucial to comprehend the 4Cs (carat, color, cut, and clarity) and choose your preferences accordingly.
Understanding the diamond color scale will enable you to choose the perfect diamond for you.

What Is Diamond Color?
In contrast to how color is typically defined, a diamond's color is determined by the lack of color. A diamond with the same colorlessness as a drop of colorless water and the same structural perfection as a diamond has a higher value. These hues can be rated from D to Z, with D, E, and F being among the highest ratings and considered colorless. From there, the grades go down alphabetically to Z shades of yellow. Diamonds are graded by gemologists based on whether or not they have color, and their grades are subsequently recorded in a diamond certificate.

STEFEE suggested color F & G which looks pretty and are economical.

What Is The Diamond Color Scale?
Color grade is measured using a diamond color scale. The scale runs from D, which stands for colorless, all the way through Z. The colorless or almost colorless diamonds in the D through J range will look clear on the scale. However, anything beyond J will start to show very faint indications of pale hue.
Due to the practically globally acknowledged standards established by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and IGI International Gemological Institute, the diamond color scale begins with D.

Diamond Color Grading And The Diamond Color Chart
Gemologists grade diamonds by contrasting their color with the standard color Garde. The stone is examined using a dichroscope and regulated illumination because the human eye is unable to see the minute impurities or shades of yellow.
For signs of color, a diamond is examined both face-up and table-down. Its color grade will be influenced by even the smallest indication in one of these areas.

Colorless Diamonds
The most flawless and colorless diamonds are those with the colors D, E, and F since they don't contain any traces of yellow.

D Color Grade Diamonds
The top color grade is D. A D diamond is colorless and has almost little color when examined with the unaided eye and under magnification.

E Color Grade Diamonds
E is regarded as colorless and is the second highest color grade. It's possible that the only distinction between D and E is a minute amount of color that can only be seen up close.

F Color Grade Diamonds
Despite being at the lower end of the colorless spectrum, F color diamonds nevertheless seem colorless to the unaided eye. They differ from D and E because they have a faint tinge that can only be seen up close.

Near Colorless Diamonds
G, H, I, and J are close to being colorless in diamonds. Diamonds that still seem "colorless" when turned face up are known as near colorless diamonds. Without contrasting the two groups side by side against a white background, the majority of people cannot determine the difference between the two.

G Color Grade Diamonds
The near-colorless range's highest color grade is G. While most consumers cannot see their faint traces of color, skilled gemologists can. For individuals looking for a colorless diamond at a reasonable price, G diamonds are a fantastic option.

H Color Grade Diamonds
H is a nearly colorless diamond that only differs slightly from a G in a few key ways. An H color grade diamond is a great option for individuals looking to save money while still investing in what looks to be a colorless diamond because the majority of consumers cannot discern the hints of color in them.

I Color Grade Diamonds
I am almost at the lowest point in the nearly colorless range. Like G and H, it will appear nearly colorless to most people, but during testing, gemologists can see its traces of color. I is perfect for people looking for a nearly colorless diamond at a much more reasonable price.

J Color Grade Diamonds
J is the last grade before color is discernible to the unaided eye and is located at the very bottom of the near-colorless spectrum. J color diamonds are probably the most reasonably priced diamonds that nevertheless give most buyers the impression that they are nearly colorless.

Faintly Colored Diamonds
Diamonds that have traces of yellow that may be seen with the naked eye are considered to be faintly tinted. The majority of jewelry retailers only provide K color grade diamonds in the range of very faint colors. They have a yellow hue, although it can be concealed in a setting made of solid yellow gold.

K Color Grade Diamonds
The brightest color, K, is recognized for having a tiny touch of yellow that is visible to the unaided eye. To cover up any yellow traces in a K color grade diamond, it should likely be set in yellow or even rose gold.

Diamond Color vs. Clarity
Color and clarity are two of the 4Cs that are frequently mistaken for one another. This is because a diamond's overall look is influenced by both color and clarity. Clarity, on the other hand, evaluates the absence of inclusions and flaws, and color measures the presence of color.
It is best to speak with a diamond professional who can provide you with individualized advise when choosing your stone if you wish to favor one over the other. However, generally speaking, each one becomes more significant in relation to the diamond shapes or even engagement ring settings.
