Colorful Diamonds

In this blog we explore the world of colored diamonds while highlighting yellow and pink diamonds specifically: the perfect diamond colors for summer!

     When you hear the word “diamond,” you probably imagine a stunning and sparkling icy clear gemstone in the center of a glittering engagement ring. For good reason, white diamonds like this are popular for all types of jewelry from tennis bracelets and stud earrings to engagement rings and pendants.

     However, diamonds can come in a varying range of gorgeous colors. Diamonds can be found in brown, black, gray, yellow, green, orange, pink, purple, blue, and red. All fancy colored diamonds are called rare as only about 1 in every 10,000 mined carats is considered “fancy colored,” but the most uncommon amongst them are red and blue diamonds.

     Colored diamonds that are more vibrant with deeper saturation of color will be more valuable and sought-after. Cut, clarity, and carat weight are still important for any diamond, but they take a backseat to the importance of quality of color in a fancy colored diamond.

Colored Diamonds Investment
     Colored diamonds are rare and increasing in popularity which is why they are considered an excellent investment opportunity. The best part about investing in diamonds is that you can wear them while you wait for the perfect time to sell! Natural colored diamonds do not fade in color so it’s fine to wear and enjoy them and they will not be adversely affected. 
     When investing in colored diamonds, you should look for diamonds that are very rich in color as they are rarer than lighter ones. Also choose diamonds with good clarity, cloudier colored diamonds are not as sought-after. As always, the more carats; the more valuable, however: do not forget that a deeply saturated and clear colored diamond of a lower carat could be worth more than a pale and cloudy colored diamond of a higher carat.

     For investment purposes, you should always purchase colored diamonds that have GIA certification. This is very important as the certification tells you exactly what you are getting and anyone purchasing the stone from you in the future will most likely ask for GIA paperwork as well.
