Diamond Color – The Second “C”

by J. Christopher Guritz

Hello! Everyone! I must admit that I went beyond my time of 20 minutes on this podcast. It is 38 minutes long. I had struggled with the second “C” Color, not technically but personally. I am so passionate about cut and How the First “C” affects everything that I even started the podcast by saying “CUT” when I meant “COLOR”. The first “C” affects so much of what we love about diamonds in every way, that it comes through in everything I speak about. So I hope you enjoy my show on the second “C” Color. If you have any questions please call my voicemail feedback hotline at 803-792-1326. I will look foward to hearing from you!
