Non Applicable Colored Diamonds Question

Recommended Posts

HELLO TO EVERYONE

RECENTLY I WAS LOOKING FOR GIA CERTIFIED DIAMONDS AND ONE CATEGROY OF THEM WAS CHEAPER DUE TO THE FACT THAT THE DIAMOND DISTRIBUTION WAS CHARACTERIZED BY GIA AS NON APPLICABLE.SOMEONE TOLD MEE THAT THIS MEANS THAT THE COLOR OF THE DIAMOND IS NOT VISSIBLE WHEN I LOOK IT FROM THE TABLE TO THE CULET....

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN MEE WHY THIS HAPPEN?IS IT LINKED WITH THE CUTTER OR FROM THE COLOR OF THE DIAMOND?

THANK YOU.

GIA will not assess distribution on colour saturations lower than "fancy light", so if your diamond is graded "light pink", GIA will write "not applicable" under distribution.

 

It is true that these diamonds will be cheaper than "proper" fancy colour diamonds, but the reason is to do with the intensity of the colour, not its uniformity through the stone (distribution).

Hi ROMFEA!

 

If it's out of the diamond's colour range , then it it considered as 'not applicable', but I really like the

fact that it pulls down the price. That's why it's better to see the actual stone. Once certification is present, and in your case, it's GIA certified, I think, you should really consider that 'category'.
