L Color Diamonds

At Brilliance, we offer certified diamonds that are color graded D (colorless) to M (faint yellow) to ensure the largest selection. Faint color is noticeable in L color diamonds. A common misconception is that only colorless diamonds exude brilliance, but even with the presence of faint yellow, which decreases diamond value, well-cut diamonds emit fire and beauty. Fluorescence can enhance the appearance of an L color diamond, as fluorescence helps cancel out faint yellow, resulting in a colorless appearance. Yellow gold settings compliment diamonds with lower color ratings.

Diamond Color

A diamond's appearance is significantly influenced by its color. A colorless diamond will exude flashes of light in a spectrum of hues, a characteristic called "fire". Color in a diamond inhibits its ability to reflect light. Therefore, diamonds with noticeable color will not have the same fire and luminosity as colorless or near colorless diamonds. Diamonds with little or no detectable color are the most valuable.

Color is graded in certified diamonds on a scale ranging from D (colorless) to Z (light yellow).

  • D (Colorless): Highest color grade a diamond can achieve. This color emits unequaled brilliance, and is extremely rare.
  • E (Colorless): Contains minute traces of color. Emits unsurpassed brilliance, and is very rare.
  • F (Colorless): Minute traces of color can only be detected by a trained gemologist. This is a high-quality color grade.
  • G, H (Near Colorless): Noticeable color only when compared to higher color grades. Excellent value, as it appears colorless to the untrained eye.
  • I, J (Near Colorless): Slightly detectable color. Excellent value, as it appears colorless to the eye.
  • K, L, M (Faint Yellow): Faint color noticeable. Even with the presence of color, diamonds can emit fire and beauty.

Diamond color is often difficult to discern when a loose diamond is viewed face up. Therefore, a diamond must be facedown against a pure white surface and viewed under carefully controlled light. The diamond will then be compared to master stones of predetermined color to determine its color.

Fluorescence

Fluorescence, the effect ultraviolet (UV) light has on a diamond, is important to consider when selecting a diamond. When UV light strikes a diamond that has fluorescent properties, the stone emits a glow (usually blue) ranging from very faint to quite strong.

Fancy Color Diamonds

Diamonds that exhibit a color other than light yellow or brown, as well as diamonds that posses a more intense yellow or brown than the 'Z' color rating are considered fancy colored. Fancy colored diamonds are so rare that only one diamond in ten thousand possesses a natural color. Depending on the coloration, intensity, and hue of the diamond, color can either detract or enhance its value. Diamond colors include gray, white, blue, yellow, orange, red, green, olive, pink, purple, brown, and black. Red diamonds are the most rare of the fancy color diamonds.

Fancy color is graded by comparing the loose diamond to master stones of predetermined color, just like colorless diamonds. However unlike colorless diamonds, fancy colored diamonds are graded face up. The most important factors in determining the value of a natural color diamond is the strength of its color. The value of a fancy colored diamond increases with the intensity of the most prominent color within the diamond.
