What You Need To Know About Diamond Color Tints

A diamond can have a several color tints, such as yellow, brown, green or grey. 

Brown, green or grey color tinted diamonds should be avoided because the diamond will look darker for their color grade. These color tints may not be reflected on the GIA certificate due to its hue.

An industry term for this is BGM (Brown, Greenish, Milky) diamonds. Always ensure that your diamond has ''No BGM''.

In the diamonds that we used in this video, they are G Color. All 3 piles of diamonds are G Colors, but in different color hues.

For all of our diamonds, we always ensure that there are no brown, green or grey tints. In addition, we do not accept diamonds with milkiness. Diamonds with these characteristics will not be reflected on the GIA/AGS certificate and are priced lower for these negative effects. Visually inspect your diamond for this or check with your jeweller.
