Yellow Diamond Grading

Often called canary diamonds, the deeper the yellow the more expensive the diamond. Yellow diamonds intensify once set in yellow gold. These are all GIA natural yellow diamonds and range from the saturated fancy vivid yellow diamond to the fancy intense yellow diamond down to the light yellow diamond.

White Diamond Grading

We used GIA-graded stones for this photo chart of GIA-graded diamond color. Colorless and near colorless diamonds are graded upside down. The differences between the grades is subtle. The diamond chart uses face up photographs to give you an idea of diamond color.

Pink Diamond Grading

These are pink diamonds we have photographed and GIA grades we’ve offered over the years. There's really no way to make an orderly chart of pinks because they are so rare and so many colors and tints can jump in the stone and take the price up or down. These are in a haphazard order but offer examples of the different grades.

Brown Diamond Grading

These are natural brown diamonds. There's really no way to make an orderly chart of brown diamonds because their tints, called qualifiers, range from green to orange to yellow. Keep in mind that brown diamonds will appear differently in different lighting conditions. All are NATURAL brown diamonds and may also be referred to as chocolate diamonds.

Orange Diamond Grading

These are orange diamonds we have photographed over the years. There's really no way to make an orderly chart of orange because orange diamonds are rare and because so many colors and tints can jump in the stone and take the price up or down--colors like yellow and brown. These have been placed these in haphazard order but offer examples of the various grades of natural orange diamonds.
