- Equivalent Colour Grade (ECG)
Occasionally ‘colourless’, or cape series diamonds will have a tint of brown or grey that is not visible face-up. These diamonds are graded on the same scale of color saturation as cape series diamonds, but are graded ‘ECG’ for hue. Diamonds with ECG grading are of lower value than those with no hue.

- Extra Facet
Facets added or remaining on a polished diamond in excess of the number usually found on a particular cutting style. Extra facets are added to remove surface imperfections, and inclusions located near the surface, without losing sizeable carat weight. Extra facets affect the polish grade of a diamond.
