FAQs about K Color Diamonds

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

Colorless diamonds and near colorless diamonds are more expensive than faint color diamonds. K color 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. This makes a K-grade diamond a much better value for the price than a J-grade diamond.

With many cuts, yes. If you are purchasing a stone of one-carat weight or more, Blue Nile generally recommends an H color grade or higher, but there are no hard-and-fast rules.

It is very rare to find a diamond that doesn't have any color at all, which is why colorless diamonds are so expensive. The vast majority of diamonds have some level of naturally occurring color.

Marquise Diamond ring

Beautiful diamond and settings worth the wait. I chose a K color with strong blue fluorescent at a very good price. The diamond sparkles and the fluorescent can’t be seen. It’s really a good quality n a good buy. I’m very happy.

Classic Four Prong Solitaire Engagement Ring that was reviewed by Michelle B.


I loved the entire experience of ordering from Blue Nile. I had never ordered from here before and wasn’t sure to believe all the great reviews but their return policy and customer service was wonderful so I felt confident. When I received my ring I was blown away at the care and quality that was put into everything from the making of the ring to the presentation. It was even more beautiful than the online photos and the value was absolutely amazing. I’m so happy with my purchase. The sizing is perfect and it’s so comfortable to wear.
