In the realm of white diamonds, “color” is more like the absence of color. A higher-grade diamond would be totally colorless, where the next highest would have a slight trace of color, and so on. The more colorless the diamond, the more colorful the spectrum of light reflected by the diamond.Diamonds can be graded anywhere from D to Z, generally by the amount of yellowish or brownish tint detected in the diamond. Those with rarer and more intense coloring, however, such as intense pink or blue or even bright yellow, can actually be worth more than a standard “white” diamond.
