I inquired about the diamonds in a couple settings. The seller told me one of them contained "top flight brown". What does that mean?

TLB- top light brown refers to a very light shade of brown stones- commonly used in more reasonably priced jewelry. This could be compared to L-M color
FTLB- Fine top light brown was like a J-K color

These terms were common years ago in the wholesale diamond trade.
Don't hear them that much lately.

It will definitely be top light brown, flight brown doesn't exist. To the best of my knowledge TLB's can look whitish face up but can show some brownish tint from the side.
