In the world of diamonds, colour actually refers to the lack of colour. While many diamonds may appear colourless, or white – especially to the naked eye – they may in fact have subtle yellow or brown tones that can be detected when comparing diamonds side by side.
Gemological Institute of America (GIA) has set the international benchmark for colour grading and has created a scale that ranges from (colourless) to Z. Fancy coloured stones such as pinks, blue, yellows and cognac have their own colour grading system.
Truly colourless stones, graded D, are rare and very valuable. The closer a diamond is to being colourless, the rarer and more valuable it is.
At Xennox Diamond World we prefer the top three colours (D, E, and F) which are considered colourless. These perfect specimens will give you pleasure every time you look at you ring. We take the time to colour match even the smallest diamonds to match your centre stone, so that all your diamonds look the same.
