What is a D Color Diamond?

If a diamond is given a D color grade on its grading report, the diamond is a colorless diamond. It is the highest color grade diamonds can receive.

Many diamond buyers wonder why the color grading scale starts with D diamond colors instead of A. The Gemological Institute of America wanted the color scale to stand out from other grading scales so they started it at D. Officially, colorless diamonds may receive a color grade of D, E, or F.

This color grading scale is different than one used for fancy color diamonds. In yellow fancy colored diamonds, you want an intense yellow hue. But if your goal is to get colorless diamonds, a diamond with a yellow tint isn't what you want.

Is a D Diamond Color Better than F Diamonds?

Diamond professionals use diamond color grading scale grades to judge diamond color based on the presence of brown yellow tint in colorless or white diamonds. When a diamond is forming under heat and extreme pressure, impurities can enter the crystal, giving the diamond color tinting.

Diamonds that are given DEF color grades are considered colorless. Diamonds that are given GHIJ color grades are in the near colorless range. Diamonds with KLM color grades through Z are considered light yellow. Clean Origin doesn't carry any diamonds with color grades below K color diamonds.

A D color diamond and an F color diamond both reside in the colorless range. Technically, a D color grade is higher than an F color grade, so it would be better. But that doesn't mean it's better for you.

When we say "better diamond", we mean higher quality. Diamond quality is based on a number of different factors, with each one pulling its own weight. You shouldn't put all your eggs in one basket when picking out the perfect diamond for your engagement ring.

In simple terms, you should rely on choosing one diamond grade over all others. D color diamonds are virtually identical to F color diamonds. Most people wouldn't be able to tell the difference if the two diamonds were sat next to each other.

Some may see a significant difference between a D color diamond and a G color diamond. G color grades are the first grades for near colorless graded diamonds.

Is D Color Good for a Diamond?

Being the highest color grade on the color grading scale, it's safe to assume that a D color diamond is an excellent color grade for a diamond. Colorless diamonds have no visible tint to the naked eye. Though a D color diamond is the best color grade available, it's not always necessary to have the highest diamond color grades.

Your diamond's shape can also impact the way its color grade appears. Round diamonds have the best brilliance of all the diamond shapes. It's also the most popular diamond shape for and the most expensive.

If you choose a round diamond, it's not necessary to purchase a D color diamond. Diamond shapes that produce lots of white light return and sparkle tend to lessen diamond tint. A G color diamond may not look any different to you, except without the significant premium of colorless loose diamonds.

Many people believe a J and K color diamonds appears colorless when put in a yellow gold setting. Alternatively, in a white gold or platinum setting, lower clarity grades may have noticeable color. All D color diamonds are offered in rose gold, yellow gold, white gold, or platinum.

The best way to find out if this setting tip works for you and what your eyes perceive diamond color to be, is to see it on yourself. For that reason, Clean Origin offers all customers a 100 day return policy just in case you don't love your diamond

Do Diamond Color Grades Matter?

One of the best things about diamond color grades is that it doesn't have anything to do with diamond's structure. Instead, it's all about the diamond's appearance to you. Your color grade is what you like best.

Some people prefer diamond color tint in their diamonds. Sometimes choosing a lower color grade can help you save money without compromising the look of a colorless diamond. Others may choose a lower color grade as opposed to a D color diamond if they're spending a little more on other diamond characteristics.

All diamond grades have their part to play in diamond quality, and the diamond color scale is no different. However, diamond color grades do not impact your diamond's structure or durability negatively.

How Rare are D Color Diamonds?

When judging diamond color alone, a D color diamond is the rarest color grade available. It's more rare to have a D color diamond that is mined than one that is lab-grown.

Lab diamonds are easier to produce in their isolated lab environment. There aren't any random impurities to taint the color of the diamond. That doesn't mean that all lab diamonds are completely colorless gems either. Lab grown diamonds are subjected to both clarity imperfections and color tints, just like natural diamonds.

Increasing carat weight can make the prices of D color diamonds skyrocket. It's difficult for a gem cutter to facet a large, colorless stone. Most diamonds have impurities in them, whether its color impurities, clarity imperfections, or a poor cut quality.

If a 3 carat diamond has no inclusions or tint to the naked eye, it is very rare. But if a 1/2 carat diamond has no inclusions or tint, it's not as rare because it's a smaller carat weight.
