Yellow Diamond Syndrome

These days, clients who come into the store are much more educated about diamonds and how to shop for them. Most learn about the 4Cs http://laminedor.ca/buying-a-diamond and become overly obsessive about clarity and color. It’s normal; these are the only attributes where they can judge with their own eyes. However, once you hit certain clarity grades (normally VS or above), clarity characteristics become very difficult to discern to the untrained eye. Therefore, people get hooked on judging color.
