How Are Natural Colored Diamonds Graded?
Diamonds come in all possible colors imaginable, from blue, to yellow, to green, and even to red. When the color of a diamond is sufficiently obvious, the stone is not graded on the same D-Z scale as colorless diamonds. We call this category of diamonds Fancy Colored.
Just like colorless diamonds, the pricing is based on the four Cs. However, in this category, color is the most important determinant of rarity and price. The color is graded in detail and differences in these color grades can command massive price differences due to rarity. All our colored diamonds are certified by the GIA, as they are the foremost authority recognized by the industry in grading fancy colored diamonds.
