FAQs about E Color Diamonds

E is the second-best color grade you can get in diamonds. Considered to be colorless, this diamond offers an icy look.

D-grade diamonds are considered to be absolutely colorless and are the rarest of all color grades. E-color diamonds are the second-most colorless, followed by F, G, and the rest of the alphabet, up to Z-color diamonds, which are the yellowest.

Choosing a color grade really comes down to budget. The majority of Blue Nile customers choose a D or E color grade, but lower color grades are perfectly lovely, especially in smaller stones.

In terms of the color grade alone, with all other things being equal, an E color diamond will sit between a D and F color diamond in price. However, a number of factors go into pricing a diamond, including cut, clarity, and carat.

Yes. Diamonds that are larger than one-carat weight show color more readily than smaller diamonds. If you are going with one of the lower color grades, consider putting the diamond in a yellow gold setting for a warm look that pairs beautifully with faint color. Higher-grade diamonds (such as D and E) should be paired with a white gold or platinum setting to enhance the icy look.

E Color Round Diamond Review

Fantastic Experience

Blue Nile provides a wealth of knowledge regarding how to purchase the perfect diamond. I’m very much a detailed oriented person, so the ability to use all of the advanced filters narrowed down the diamonds that fit what I was looking for and also gave me confidence that what I was getting was truly quality, particularly with not being able to see it. My consultant Judy was very helpful and patient with me while I made my decision and figured out how to pay for it. She even had the vault manager visually inspect the diamond just to make sure it was perfect. I ended up with a way higher quality diamond for half the price of what my local jeweler wanted to charge me for lower quality. Fantastic experience. Thank you Blue Nile.

E Color Marquise Cut Diamond Review

E-Color Marquise Diamond ring

This setting is even better with a 0.3ct Marquise. With a strong blue fluorescence, I couldn’t notice any even under direct sunlight. The platinum setting is heavy and feels sturdy. I like the thicker band on this setting compared to the petite cathedral.
