The Standard 4Cs: Color

Diamonds range from colorless to light yellow, using a D to Z color scale.

Apart from the most intense fancy color diamonds, the rarest – and therefore most valuable – diamonds are colorless.

‘Colorless’ diamonds D, E, and F show so little difference that only experts using master reference diamonds of known grades can distinguish one from another. Near colorless G, H, I begin to show faint hints of color only when compared with diamonds higher up the scale. J, K and L will show hints of color when compared against a pure white background. Color variations can be so slight that color grading is conducted by experts under controlled lighting conditions using a master set for accuracy. Forevermark diamonds are scrutinized to determine micro-variations in depth of color. Forevermark inscribes diamonds from D to L as well as all fancy colors. All Forevermark diamonds are graded in a controlled lighting environment to ensure maximum accuracy.
