Diamond Color: The Essence of a Great Diamond.

The fact is that diamonds actually do have a variety of colors. The coloration of a diamond generally runs from clear to yellow, with intermediate colorations in between. The color of a diamond is rated on a scale that utilizes letters. The best grade of diamond, when it comes to color, is considered a colorless diamond rated D and is very rare. Diamonds rated E and F are also rare and can be very pricey. For the best value, look for diamonds graded G-J. At the other end of the spectrum are yellow diamonds rated Z.

At E.S. Designs, we do not stock any diamonds below color J because colors below J detract from the diamondís fire and brilliance.
