Yellow Fancy Diamonds

They say that: “The ideal diamond must have no color at all, like a drop of spring water”.

Well, this event occurs when diamonds have the most refraction of light, then they “sparkle”. But things change and color diamonds have become a trend. So we find a rainbow of tonalities to suit all taste:  red, blue, pink, green, and bright yellow that are highly prized and extremely rare.

Rare fancy yellow diamonds are also called canary diamonds where the deeper yellow color the more expensive it becomes.

The biggest  yellow diamond, take a look!! latest news and price.

The chart for grading yellow diamonds (GIA Scale) starts with the finest colorless diamonds represented by the letter “D” and proceeds through the alphabet until the letter “Z”. Beyond “Z” is the range where the diamond’s color is vivid and rich, called “fancy colors” and between them the fancy vivid yellow diamonds.
