After years of being a jewelry consumer you will finally realize that quantity will not beat out quality, and for this you want to go with a minimum of VS1 F color. However, we rarely manufacture jewelry with this grade on a massive scale simply because few customers can appreciate it, pay for it, or even recognize it when they see it.
SI is the most practical way to purchase diamond jewelry that will impress onlookers and satisfy the diamonds true purpose which is to shine. A SI-1 Stone with G color is a grade that can fool even the pickiest diamond buyers who claim they only stand for VS diamonds. This is because in smaller diamond sizes, the difference is too minute to tell with the naked eye especially if you lack years of experience.
G color is the finest achievable color that can be sought after for being near colorless without breaking the bank. H is a close second but has a noticeable difference to a diamond professional. A grade between G and H is what we call G-H which is a great way of enjoying near colorless diamonds without paying the colorless price.
