D.NEA primarily offers white diamonds in colorless and near colorless colors up to five carats.
Making them Colorless
Diamonds are made of carbon. If the diamond is pure carbon with no impurities, it will be completely colorless. Nearly all diamonds–mined and grown alike–have some impurities, which add color to the diamond, with nitrogen being the most common. During growth, these impurities become part of the diamond lattice and create a single-atom ‘color center’ based on the specific element. This color center absorbs all visible light, except one color which is reflected back, giving the diamond its color. Nitrogen creates a yellow color while boron creates a blue color.
