Our Guide To Different Diamond Colours

“Diamonds are a girl’s best friend” is one of the most common phrases when it comes to the world of jewellery, and it just so happens that this particular statement is true. Due to the fact that they last forever and because of their eternal link to engagement rings, diamonds will always be popular amongst women. Their versatility and countless styles mean that you have a wealth of options to choose from when it comes to picking out the perfect piece of diamond jewellery, and that, after receiving expert advice from our team, you’ll be able to find the right one for you.

However, such is the vast range of diamonds currently in the jewellery market, sometimes you may find yourself struggling to settle on a particular piece of jewellery. The carat, the cut and the clarity are all things that you should consider when picking out the right diamond- as everyone has their own preferences, and you don’t want to go home with a diamond you are unhappy with.

So, whether you’re purchasing a piece of diamond jewellery for yourself or for a loved one, it’s important that you consider the different specifications. Amongst all of this variety are the different colours, and we’re here at The Goldmarket to give you a brief guide as to which might be the right colour  for you:


These diamonds are traditionally an extremely neutral and pale shade, but they can also come much darker. You may also want to look at the pink champagne colour, which incorporate a pinkish shade into the diamond- however, these are usually more expensive, which is also worth bearing in mind when settling on a colour.


These are perhaps the most popular diamonds on the market, and are the most well-known colour out there. If you’re buying diamonds as a romantic gift, an engagement ring or as a Christmas present this year, then white might be the right shade for you.

Green and Blue

These two colours are amongst the rarest and most valuable in the world, meaning that you’ll have to pay a lot more to own one. Blue diamonds are perhaps the rarest of all, and they come in a range of shades which can make any piece of jewellery really sparkle. As for the green colours, they represent nature and growth, and are almost as hard to get hold of as the blue shades.


Whereas green and blue diamonds are particularly vibrant and colourful, grey tones can give a piece of jewellery a more dignified look. The dulled-down, neutral tone can make your jewellery look classy and professional, with a sort of subtle style that will gain you some attention for all the right reasons.

There are many different shades of diamond out there, and we have merely touched upon the surface- however, we hope that this has helped in your selection process. At The Goldmarket, we understand how important a piece of jewellery can be, and that’s why we recommend speaking to our experts in our jewellery shop in Weston-super-Mare before making a purchase.
