What Is a G Color Diamond?

A G colored diamond has been given a color grade in the near colorless range.

All diamonds are subject to a light yellow or brown tint during formation, whether they're natural or lab diamonds.

The color grade scale was created as part of the 4 C's of diamond quality, introduced by the Gemological Institute of America.

Color grades are divided into different tiers, each with individual grades. The other aspects of the 4 C's are carat weight, cut, and clarity.

G colored diamonds are part of the near colorless range. G diamonds that are almost colorless have a very faint yellow tint that you may or may not notice.

You're less likely to notice a G diamond in the near colorless range than you would an I color diamond.

It is the first individual color grade given in this color range. After a G color diamond, follow H, I, and J color diamonds.

Is G Color Diamond Good? 

One of the best things about diamond color grades is that they're an aesthetic choice. Unlike diamond cut and diamond clarity, your G color grade doesn't have an effect on the overall durability or light performance of your diamond.

Diamond color is simply up to personal preference. Most diamond experts would agree a G color diamond engagement ring is a suitable choice for a diamond color grade.

Most rings found in local retailers are almost colorless, such as a G color diamond or H color diamond.

Is a G Color Diamond Too Yellow?

G color is only too yellow if you think it's too yellow. If you're going by diamond quality, the warmer your diamond color is, the less value it has.

That doesn't make it a bad diamond. Instead, it makes it more affordable.

We all see diamond color grades differently. One person could look at a G color diamond solitaire engagement ring and say it looks like a colorless diamond.

Another may be able to tell it was a near colorless diamond. Some diamond shoppers even look for fancy colored diamonds.

With G color diamonds being at the top of the near colorless grades, most people won't see a major difference between F diamond color grades from the colorless range and G color diamonds with the naked eye.

Only gemological laboratories and diamond experts tend to be able detect the slight difference.

Near-Colorless Diamond vs. Colorless Diamond

Colorless grades are diamonds in the DEF range. Near colorless diamonds are GHIJ.

Depending on your diamond's color grade, you may not notice the difference between these two diamond color tiers.

Some say that you're less likely to notice the difference with a diamond color grade higher on the same tier. For example, the majority of people won't notice the difference between a D color diamond and E color diamonds.

In the same way, most wouldn't notice the distinction between G color diamonds and an H color diamond. But if you were to compare G color diamonds with a D color diamond, most people would see a difference in color.

It may be surprising to know that some engagement ring buyers prefer warmer color diamonds to colorless ones.

Many people with warm skin tones or darker skin tones say that faint yellow diamonds look better on them.

The same is also said for yellow gold jewelry. The warmth of the yellow metal color complements the warmth in the skin tone.

Consider yourself blessed if this is you because you can save more of your engagement ring budget by going for a lower grade with a lower price.

Customers often want a definitive answer to which color ranges are the best. From a technical point of view, colorless is better.

Near colorless diamonds are a better value than loose diamonds if all other diamond grades are the same.

Neither one is better than the other because it doesn't affect the composition of your diamond or its sparkle.

Are G Color Diamonds Better than I Color Diamonds?

Both G color diamonds and I color diamonds are on the same color tier. I diamonds are two color grades lower than G color diamonds.

By GIA standard, G color diamonds are considered to be better than I color diamonds. But like all color grades, the preference for G color diamonds to I color diamonds depends on you.

G color diamonds are likely to be more expensive than I color diamonds. Not everyone can afford that price difference, even if they want it.

If that's the case, there are a couple of ways around it, depending on your color perception.

Think about your ring setting. Some see the warmth of an I diamond in comparison to a G color diamond as loose diamonds and aren't a fan. In this case, engagement rings with other diamonds in the setting might not help you.

Smaller accent diamonds tend to have better color grades than a center diamond because they're smaller. It's easier to cut colorless diamonds out of small pieces of diamond rough.

Ring settings like halo engagement rings would probably make the warmth in your diamond more noticeable.

The halo surrounding it could make your center stone more yellow due to the higher color grades surrounding it.

A solitaire ring setting would be more suitable. There are no smaller diamonds to compete with the tint of an I diamond. Therefore, you may not notice the color as much as in other engagement rings.

If it still bothers you and you're unable to work a G color diamond into your budget, you may consider putting your I color diamond in yellow gold solitaire setting.

For some, the bright yellow metal offsets diamond tint, making the diamond appear whiter than it would in white gold or platinum.
