What is Color?

What is Color?


Although diamonds can be found in nearly every color of the rainbow, a pure white diamond is one of the most prized and expensive. The absence of color is considered pure white. Most all diamonds mined have traces of yellow and brown. Rare diamonds come in other colors such as red, green, and blue. The famous Hope Diamond is blue.

The color scale designated by GIA starts at “D” for the whitest grade, then descends through the alphabet as the stone becomes more and more yellow.

Although whiter diamonds are generally more expensive, those with traces of yellow or light brown body color can sometimes give the stone a warmer appearance. When choosing a diamond, let your eyes tell you which color is the most appealing. If you feel a G-color diamond is more beautiful than the E-color you are comparing it to at twice the price, don’t be influenced to purchase the whiter gem just because the certificate is more impressive.

Wishing you a brilliant day!

Police Report

This will be submitted to the Indianapolis police, where my birthmother was living at the time of her disappearance. I hope the relationships I have forged with my […]

The Anniversary Ring

“You love birds can sit here with me if you want,” the elderly man said to the young couple desperately looking for a vacant breakfast table. “I’ll be leaving soon, and it looks like these are the last empty chairs in the house.” The Garden Terrace was a romantic spot that peered across the Pacific […]

To whom are we praying?

Less than a few hours of oxygen remain on the small submersible that imprisons five passengers in the freezing North Atlantic. Millions of people are praying. Millions of people also believe in the power of prayer.  Surely this concentration of thought will lean toward a positive result. Surely with our focused intention our prayers will […]
