Color Diamonds come in many different colors, including the stunning, classic white. It’s important to note that colored diamonds that come in pinks or blues are assessed separately from white diamonds. The GIA grades white diamonds on a scale of D to Z, D being the most colorless and effectively the most ideal. Colorless white diamonds are the rarest, making them more valuable. Clarity Clarity is the characteristic of a diamond being free of any natural flaws or imperfections that affect how clean it looks. In terms of diamonds, these are known as inclusions (imperfections inside the diamond) and blemishes (imperfections on the surface of the diamond). The system to assess the clarity is by using a scale by the GIA, where FL or Flawless is the highest grade.

While it is obvious that the weight of your diamond adds to the price, it should be the least of your concerns as this trait hardly influences the visual value of your diamond Lastly, use this guide to help you examine a diamond before paying, in order of priority.
