K Color Diamond Engagement Ring – Is Faint Yellow Too Yellow?

For more details on what a K color diamond is, visit: https://beyond4cs.com/color/k-diamonds/

On the GIA color grading scale, the K diamond sits somewhere near the middle of the rating scale. The K diamond is at the top of the Faint category and is described as a Faint Yellow or Faint Brown depending on the underlying hue it has in the grading report.

In this video, you will get to see exactly what a K color diamond engagement ring looks like on a hand. We examine the faint yellow ring in different daily environments.

This will help you visually determine whether a K is good enough for you in terms of looking white or looking too yellow for your tastes.

In my opinion, K diamonds offer good value for money and the prices for them are exponentially cheaper when buying a large size diamond. Depending on the shape and other attributes, the cost of a K diamond can sometimes be as low as a third of a D color diamond. In absolute terms, this translates to tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Watch the video above and leave a comment below to let me know your thoughts. Are K diamonds too yellow for you? Would you be willing to pay a much more expensive price just to get higher color ratings?

I would love to hear from you.
