Shop for G color diamonds from Blue Nile, and balance beauty with budget. These near-colorless diamonds have traces of color, but you probably wouldn’t be able to tell by looking at it with the naked eye. The highest of the near-colorless grades, G color diamonds account for 18 percent of the diamonds sold at Blue Nile.
If you were to compare a G color diamond with a diamond of a higher color grade, you would be able to tell the difference, but if you are looking at the diamond alone, it will appear bright and white to the eye.
Are G color diamonds good?
Blue Nile carries eight color grades that fall within three categories: colorless, near colorless, and faint color. G-grade diamonds are the highest color grade within the near colorless category and the fourth-best color grade overall.
Are G color diamonds a good value?
Because the hue of a G colored diamond is not discernible to the eye, G color diamonds are considered an incredible value for the quality of the stone. When designing your engagement ring, choose a white gold or platinum setting to keep the stone looking bright.
What color grade diamond should I get?
Shopping for a diamond really comes down to balancing budget with beauty. Blue Nile recommends shopping for an H color grade diamond or higher if the diamond is one-carat weight or larger—although there are no rules when it comes to shopping color grades.
