Diamond Colour Grading

Deciding on the colour diamond is very important. The grading is alphabetical starting from a D colour which is the Top White and most expensive. Colours D and E are exceptional white, F and G are rare white and H are white. Colour I and J are still in what we call the nearly colourless group meaning that there are no visible yellow tint. It wouldn’t be possible to see a difference with the un-aided eye between D,E and F but you will pick up a slight difference between a D and H if only viewed next to each other. The price difference between these colours are much bigger than the colour difference. Especially once a diamond is set in a White or Yellow Gold ring it brings out the white of the diamond and that makes it more difficult to identify.

THE PERFECT DIAMOND

How to choose a diamond?
I would suggest to start with the shape of the diamond. There is a few different shapes obviously the most popular being the round, known as the Round Brilliant cut. We also have the Cushion, Princess, Emerald, Pear and even Heart shaped diamonds. If you are not sure on how they look visit your Jeweller or us in Pretoria/ Centurion area to show you the various cuts. Once you have decided on a shape it is time to look at a size. And this is where budget plays a defining role we have a range from R 3 000 – R 300 000. Thereafter decide on the colour. Colour grading is alphabetical starting with a D, E, F as the top white G,H, colourless and I,J near colourless. Getting very popular is a bigger diamond with a little tint of yellow. As a yellow shading gets more visible they do get a bit more affordable still makes for a beautiful Diamond Engagement ring. Regarding the Clarity it is a natural inclusion in the diamond which makes it unique, try for a VS (Very slightly included) but usually a SI (Slightly included) are not visible with the naked eye and a bit more affordable. For more information visit our 5 C’S www.girlsbestfriend.co.za/cut.php . Furthermore to make sure you are getting what you are paying for get the grading of the diamond confirmed by a laboratory certificate from the GIA or E.G.L South Africa. Any Jeweller and we at Girls Best Friend will provide this grading to you.
