AsI pointed out on my Diamond Color page seeing the difference between diamond colors is very difficult. In fact, if you take any 2 colors that are adjacent to each other on color charts (e.g. an E and F) you won’t be able to see the difference between them. Even if you take diamonds that are 2 grades apart in most cases you won’t be able to tell them apart unless you hold them up next to each other under proper lighting.  If I were to show you first a G color diamond and then a few seconds later an H color diamond-you won’t be able to tell me which is which! So why pay extra for the G color? Good question and the answer is that all things being equal- you shouldn’t!

Here is a diamond color chart that I put together showing you similar diamonds with only the color being different.  All the diamond images below are real diamonds listed on James Allen at the time of this writing. I provide the link to each one so you can see for yourself. I tried to keep all other factors equal so I picked out only diamonds that are between 1.0 and 1.05 carat and is an Ideal cut VS1 Round diamond.  The only major difference between them is the color.  See if you can tell the difference between them.
