    The De Beers Centenary Diamond has a colour grade D, making it a diamond with the highest level of colour grading - colourless and flawless on the interior and exterior.    The De Beers Centenary Diamond is No. 5 on our list of most expensive diamonds, and worth a staggering $100 million dollars.

    The diamond has 273.85 carat and weighs 54.77 grams making it the third largest diamond ever discovered at the Premier Diamond mine.  It was introduced in May 1991 and was cut with an amazing 247 facets, giving it the scintillating look you see above.

    Colourless diamonds are rare - coveted because they reflect light from around them.

    It is named the Centenary Diamond as it was presented in the rough for the Centennial Celebration of De Beers Consolidated Mines on May 11, 1988.

  • Diamond Colour Grading at My Diamonds

    The coloured diamond, or fancy diamonds as they're referred to are quite rare.  Most diamonds are yellowish brown when in their natural state, which is caused by the presence of nitrogen molecules trapped in the mineral when it was formed millions of years ago.

    The less nitrogen in a diamond,the whiter it is and the more expensive and coveted - colour grades go from D - completely colourless, to Z - a beige yellow colour.

    All of My Diamonds diamonds are graded by GIA, a diamond grading laboratory in the United States.  Discernible differences between D, E, and F grades are difficult to see with the naked eye, and when set in a mount, invisible.

    Cut grades often change the colour of a diamond.  My Diamonds use their own artisan master craftsmen when cutting, mounting and polishing a diamond.  Their designs are unique to My Diamonds, so it's unlikely you will see another like your favourite diamond engagement ring on any other online diamond retailer's site.

    As the colour grade gets nearer to Z, the yellow tinge is much more visible, and when compared to diamonds of a higher grade, the difference will be much more dramatic.

    For an overview of diamonds from My Diamonds, go to their website at www.mydiamonds.com.au and refer to their diamond buying guides.  Their diamond sourcing page is the best way to find a special diamond, particularly if you're designing your own ring.  Here is an example of a grading report from GIA, the certificate you'll receive when you buy your own special diamond:~
