Carats – your wedding ring diamond weight

Most diamonds are clear, but still there are variations in color. Some stones look a little “dirty”. Clear stones obviously cost more. Color of your diamonds is indicated by letters. D is the color of most rare diamonds and it is described as absolutely colorless. This is the highest color grade, and you usually don’t find such stones in ordinary jewelers.

F is another colorless grade, only slightly less clear than E. F diamonds are usually the best of what most people can afford for a wedding or engagement ring. Next two down are G and H diamonds which are called nearly colorless; they are of a good market value.
