Color ~ Most
diamonds, although appearing colorless, actually have
slight tones of yellow or brown. As these tones become
more easily apparent, the rarity and the value of the
diamond decreases. The GIA’s scale for comparing
relative color grades of diamonds begins with D for “colorless,”
and ending at Z, which has obvious color. At Elleard Heffern,
we offer diamonds ranging from D through K, which
will show faint color in the proper grading conditions.
Fancy colored diamonds in shades of intense yellow, pink or blue and other hues are much rarer than the white diamonds seen in most jewelry. In addition to the “fancies” in our showcases, Elleard Heffern Fine Jewelers also has access to some of the world’s most spectacular fancy diamonds, for the connoisseur who desires a truly special gem.
