Diamonds vary in color from colorless to slight tones of yellow. Colorless & near colorless diamonds are most brilliant, most rare and most valuable. The following scale shows the loose diamond color rating systems. D (no color) is the most expensive "color" and N through Z (very light to light yellow), the least expensive. Beverly Diamonds offers no diamond below a color grade of J.

Diamond Color
D Absolutely colorless. The absolute highest color grade possible, rare.
E Colorless. Colorless, a rare diamond with only small traces of color that can only be seen by a professional gemologist.
F Colorless. Very Slight color shown, if any, by a professional gemologist, and off course it is still considered a "colorless diamond".
G-H Nearly-colorless. Color can only be visible when being compared to other diamonds of better color grades, but these grades offer a great value & are a choice of many consumers.
I-J Nearly-colorless. Color slightly noticeable. These grades are usually offered at a great value.
K-M Noticeable color. Diamond of this low color grade is not carried by Beverly Diamonds.
N-Z Noticeable color. Diamond of this low color grade is not carried by Beverly Diamonds.
Frequently Asked Questions

What is a clarity enhanced diamond?

Clarity enhanced diamonds are real and natural diamonds that were treated in a lab to remove imperfections in the diamond. Because of this treatment, clarity enhanced diamonds are cheaper per carat than non-enhanced diamonds.

What does clarity enhanced diamond mean?

When someone says a diamond was clarity enhanced, they mean to say that the natural diamond was treated in a lab. There are two categories of clarity enhancement. Removing any debris or coloration, and filling fractures in the diamond with resin or some other material that will help it sparkle.

Are clarity enhanced diamonds real?

YES. Clarity enhanced diamonds are completely real diamond stones. They are not grown in a lab or from a different material like CZ (cubic zirconia). They have just had some fillings or laser treatment done to them in order to improve their appearance.

Are clarity enhanced diamonds less value-able?

Clarity enhanced diamonds are cheaper per carat. You can buy a much bigger diamond that is clarity enhanced for the same price as a smaller non-enhanced diamond.

How do you clean a clarity enhanced diamond?

You can clean a clarity enhanced diamond the same way you clean any other diamond or gemstone. Their enhancements do not practically affect their durability.
