When searching for a clear diamond, it is important to remember that diamonds are graded based on their color or tint.† So, a diamond may be considered clear or white, but it may have a yellowish or brownish tint.† White diamonds are categorized through colorless to light yellow using the letters D-Z, with D being completely colorless and Z being light yellow.† Stones should be graded only when they are loose because the metal can actually affect the way the diamond looks.† Although clear diamonds will always be popular and timles, colored diamons are becoming more and more popular.† Diamonds literally come in every color of the rainbow and then some.† However, only 1 out of every 10,000 carats of diamonds are naturally colored.†
