Everything you need to know about Grey Diamonds

Saturday, January 23rd, 2021

Grey diamonds are a little piece of magic, with a sparkle of inclusions and colours that makes each one completely unique. At Chupi, we adore grey diamonds for their sparkle and fire.

A grey diamond is the perfect alternative to a classic diamond in an engagement or heirloom ring. A grey diamond is an excellent choice if you want a bespoke ring. As each diamond is utterly unique due to its individual markings, you will truly have a one in a million engagement ring.

What are grey diamonds?

Grey diamonds are exactly the same as diamonds but with inclusions and colour. White diamonds are graded on the 4C’s: Cut, Colour, Clarity and Carat. With grey diamonds, you look for completely different things like fire and brilliance. One of our favourite things about grey diamonds is that they’re completely unique, no two grey diamonds are the same.

Grey or salt and pepper diamonds are exactly the same as traditional diamonds but they carry visual inclusions of carbon and other minerals captured within them as they formed over millions of years. This gives each stone its unique hues, tones and patterns of light which is why we love them so much.

Gemological laboratories certify traditional diamonds based on how few inclusions are visible. They grade this clarity, ranging from ‘Internally Flawless’ to ‘Included’. However, because grey diamonds are valued for their unique internal patterns caused by the very inclusions traditional diamonds look to eliminate, traditional certification cannot be applied to these stones. All our grey diamond and classic diamond suppliers adhere to the Kimberley Process standards.

Grey Diamond Ring Stack

Grey diamonds are a 10 on the MOHS scale of hardness, meaning they are the hardest of all gemstones, the perfect gemstone for your modern heirloom ring.
