When it comes to a diamond's color, many people think that a "good" color means that it is brilliantly white - but this is seldom the case. Nature has provided a whole spectrum of colors in the makeup of diamonds, including red, pink, green, blue, and yellow.

Acting as a prism, a diamond divides light into a spectrum of colors and reflects this light as colorful flashes called fire. The less color in a diamond means the more colorful the fire, which results in a better color grade

The Color Grades
