I never knew there was such a thing as a gray diamond. 
Ranging from smoky to deep graphite, gray diamonds are an intriguing alternative to colorless/white diamonds. Distinguished and elegant, gray diamonds offer a neutral color that helps them blend with any look. The metallic hues offer the sparkle and fire of a traditional diamond and avoid the opaque look of darker stones such as black diamonds. The diamonds get their color from hydrogen trapped in the atoms during the creation process, resulting in stunning shades of silver that bring dignified and dramatic touch to the classic diamond look. Gray diamonds often feature blue and green hues as secondary colors.
