G Color Diamonds

What You Need To Know About G Color Diamonds

The right color of a diamond is one of the prime considerations when someone purchases a diamond because it typically reflects the owner’s personality and style.

G diamonds, though far from the colorless D range, is a phenomenal choice for diamond buyers.

Shira diamonds offer G diamonds that are generally cheaper but offer outstanding beauty.

They are diamonds that are the highest grade in the near-colorless range.

They display a faint yellow tint that is not noticeable in a normal environment without bright lighting and special equipment.

GIA Color, Cut, and Clarity Charts in Perspective

There are three important tools we use to compare diamonds and to determine diamond prices.

They also measure the 3 important qualities of a diamond, according to GIA (Gemological Institute of America).

The GIA diamond color chart ranges from D to Z (D is as colorless as naturally possible). The most highly valued diamonds have no color. The color ranges are:

  • D – F: Colorless
  • G – J: Near Colorless
  • K – M: Faint
  • N – R: Very Light
  • S – Z: Light

The diamond cut chart or scale determines the cut grade of standard diamonds taking into account the design and craftsmanship of the diamond.

The diamond clarity scale with 6 categories and 11 specific grades evaluates the purity of a piece of diamond.

The better the clarity grade of a diamond, the purer it is which means that it has almost no inclusions or blemishes. In a nutshell, the scale is divided into:

  • Flawless (FL)
  • Internally Flawless (IF)
  • Very, Very Slightly Included (VVS1 and VVS2)
  • Very Slightly Included (VS1 and VS2)
  • Slightly Included (S1 and S2)
  • Included (I1, I2, I3)

Comparing G Diamonds with Other Diamond Color Grades

 

Our customers often worry that the diamonds they buy are below the colorless range (D, E, F).

But we do not push them to buy the more expensive diamonds nor do we exaggerate that color is very important when buying a diamond.

We let our diamond buyers understand that there isn’t much difference between a D color diamond and a G color diamond that is perfectly cut.

With a perfect cut, the facet patterns of a diamond and their ability to reflect light are almost the same for the D and G color diamonds.

This is especially true for the round brilliant cut that is great at concealing differences of color in a diamond, even the one with a lower color grade.

The difference may be very clear when seen under a brightly lit laboratory setting with specialized equipment to view the diamond piece up to 30x magnification but in a real-life setting, your naked eye cannot tell the difference. It is amazingly indistinguishable.
