FAQs about K Colour Diamonds

K colour grade diamonds are the highest colour grade stones within the faint colour category. They offer a very slight yellow hue that makes them a great choice for yellow gold settings.

K colour grade diamonds offer a tone difference so slight you likely wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between a K-grade stone and a J-grade stone if you viewed them side by side.
