When buying diamonds, their colour is one of the most critical aspects that shouldn't be overlooked because one of the important aspects for pricing it is its colour.Diamonds can be either colourless (white) or fancy-coloured (coloured).Diamond colour is a product of the diamond creation process.A diamond's colour refers to its transparency, or how clear it is. While the colourless diamonds are of the highest clarity, the lower quality has a tint in them. Colourless diamonds are of significant importance. They are chemically pure and contain little to no impurities. As the diamond shows more tint of colour, it goes down the grading scale.

Diamonds are also graded as Fancy Colour, which uses a distinctive set of conditions. With fancy colour diamonds, the rarest and most valuable colours are saturated pinks, blues, and greens. Very slight colour differences can have a huge impact on its value. Compared to fancybrowns, diamonds with a noticeable hint of any other hue are considerably rarer. Even in light tones and weak saturation, they qualify as fancy colours. Red, green, and blue diamonds with medium to dark tones and moderate saturations are extremely rare.

While grading white diamonds is binary (colour or not), it’s much more complex with fancy-colored stones. Fancy diamonds are graded by not one but three features. Hue (the colour name or mix), tone (light or dark colour), and saturation (how intense or strong the colour is).It takes a complex and specialised process to grade fancy colour diamonds. It also involves highly trained laboratory graders to complete the process accurately.

So when buying diamonds, should one consider the colour?

Indeed yes. But there are other parameters to consider as well. The quality of a diamond is judged based on 4 Cs- Cut, colour, clarity and carat.

With fancy color diamonds, color is the dominant value factor. Even diamonds with numerous inclusions that result in a low clarity grade are prized by connoisseurs if they display attractive face-up color. Of course, inclusions that threaten the gem’s durability can lower a fancy color diamond’s value significantly. Fancy color diamonds can exhibit color graining, which is considered an inclusion

Diamond colour is largely influenced by its size and shape. The larger a diamond is, or the deeper its pavilion, the farther light can travel in it, giving a richer, more intense colour.

Cuts are also an important consideration when buying a diamond because the diamond shape is the first thing that gets noticed.

Have a read at different diamond shapes.

1. Round Diamonds:

The most popular diamond shape, round diamonds comprises 75% of the total diamonds sold. It is largely preferred because of its 360-degree symmetry in form, capability to reflect more light and maximum brightness.

2. Princess-cut Diamonds:

This much-loved fancy shape combines the dynamism of a round diamond and the classiness of an emerald-cut or princess-cut diamond. Largely used in engagement rings, it is a great choice for different styles because of its flexibility.

3. Marquise Diamonds:

With two sharp points on either end, Marquise-cut diamonds are sleek in their form. Since it accentuates long, the marquise diamond has one of the largest surface areas of any diamond shape, making it a good choice when trying to maximize perceived size.

4. Oval Diamonds:

These are brilliantly modified versions of round diamonds. Oval diamonds exhibit uniqueness with their slightly elongated structure, creating the illusion of greater size.
