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.
Yellow diamonds are perhaps the most popular colored diamond currently in the jewelry world for the bright yellow – often referred to as “canary” – is eye-catching and makes a bold statement that is hard to rival.
Yellow diamonds look beautiful in rings, necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. Besides white diamonds, fancy yellow diamonds are one of our top favorite stones to work with! We even have an entire case of yellow diamond jewelry at Diva Diamonds.
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.
