Colorless Diamonds from Credible Jewelers (D-E-F)

Near Colorless (G, H, I, J, K) Diamonds
These are diamonds with a faint color only compared to the high-color grade diamonds. G and H diamonds have a high value, close to the colorless diamonds.
I, J, and K diamonds appear colorless to untrained eyes but have a slight color. They still emit brilliance and fire, similar to colorless diamonds.
Light Colored (L-Z) Diamonds
Light-colored diamonds have shades with warm color, similar to “using a sepia filter on a photo.” Some women love these diamonds for their warm tint.
