- If you want a white diamond:
You do not need to buy a D color diamond to have a beautiful white diamond. We suggest going for a G, H or I, J color to still have a very white looking diamond to the naked eye!
- If you want your diamond to look whiter than it is:
You may want your diamond to look extremely white, while not having the budget for it. An expert tip: set your diamond in a yellow gold or pink gold ring. By contrast, your diamond will appear much whiter! Read more about gold colors here.
- If you opt for a faint yellow / champagne color diamond:
You can also go lower than I and decide to go for a faint yellow diamond (K to M). Faint yellow diamonds are also very attractive and described by many as having a “champagne” color! If the cut and clarity grades are high, you can obtain a very beautiful diamond, and at a much lower price than a colorless one!
Both diamonds displayed below have a SI2 clarity, a 1.00 carat weight, and an oval shape. Only differences: color… and PRICE! The D graded color diamond costs almost 2.500 euros more than its champagne K color counterpart. Which one would you go for?
