Did you browse through our online collection of diamond jewelry yet? Then you already often saw ‘Top Wesselton’ as one of the diamond characteristics. But what is a Top Wesselton diamond?

A diamond’s color

Diamonds come in different colors. I’m not only talking about fancy colors, such as blue diamonds, red diamonds and pink diamonds. But also about different variations of colorless diamonds. For colorless diamonds, we also use the term ‘white diamonds’. So if you see ‘white diamonds’ think colorless and vice versa. Top Wesselton is a white color.

The diamond color scale

As you can imagine, certain diamonds are perfectly colorless. But others have a slight yellowish hue. Even though some people prefer a yellowish color, white is still the most popular choice. Does that mean you can only choose between perfect white or yellowish diamonds? Not at all! There is a whole range of colors between these two hues. You can see the range of colors on the diamond color scale.

What makes Top Wesselton so special

We call perfect white diamonds ‘River’. Top Wesselton is the next most white diamond. The only way to see that a Top Wesselton is not pure white is to place it next to a River diamond. But even then it takes a trained eye to see the difference. Therefore, to the naked eye, a Top Wesselton looks perfectly colorless. But as you probably expected: it costs less than a River-diamond. That’s why Top Wesselton diamonds are so popular.

What is a Wesselton diamond

As you can see in the color scale, Wesselton comes right after Top Wesselton. Wesselton (H) is the first hue to discover a slight color change within. But in reality, you can actually only see the difference when you put it next to a River-colored diamond. Therefore, Wesselton is still a very good color.

Top Crystal and Crystal are slightly tinted white diamonds. This means they can have a soft yellowish hue. However, it can really vary between the one or the other diamond. No two diamonds are the same. That is why it is so important to see the diamond yourself before you purchase it.

Which gold color matches Top Wesselton and other colors?

White diamonds such as Top Wesselton go great with any gold color. It doesn’t matter if you’re going for white gold, yellow gold, rose gold or even platinum. If you want a yellow gold ring, you can even choose a slightly more yellowish diamond. The yellow of the gold makes the diamond look whiter. However, a yellowish diamond in white gold can appear a bit more yellow. When you opt for rose gold, I would recommend a white diamond. If you want a less pricey option, you can consider a brown diamond. The combination of a chocolate-colored diamond and rose gold is a stunning one.
