Colored Diamond Grading Standards

GIA established color grading standards and terminology specifically for color diamonds, based on the color's hue, tone, and saturation. This grading standard, combined with GIA's ability to determine whether color is natural or the result of an artificial process, has made GIA colored diamond reports the benchmark for captivating gems.

Color diamonds are graded on a scale from Faint to Fancy Deep. The entire spectrum is as follows:

Faint, Very Light, Light, Fancy Light, Fancy, Fancy Intense, Fancy Vivid, Fancy Dark, Fancy Deep

Faint, Very Light, and Light apply to all colors except yellow. A yellow stone with one of those grades is still considered a diamond that falls between the D-Z color range of white diamonds.
