About Colour

As a diamond forms, traces of nitrogen often get caught inside and cause a slight brown or yellow tinge, affecting its colour. Assuming every other diamond quality indicator is equal, a stone with less colour is more highly valued than one with more colour. At Diamond Exchange, we only carry diamonds within the highest colour grades.

The International Colour Scale

The International Colour Scale

Diamond colour selection depends on the setting, and if you are shopping for a rose gold or yellow gold ring, you can choose a stone slightly lower on the diamond colour chart without it being noticeable, because the colour of the metal makes the diamond appear less coloured.

We recommend choosing a diamond of the highest colour you can afford without sacrificing cut, carat or clarity.
