Five interesting facts you should know about fancy colored diamonds


Five interesting facts you should know about fancy colored diamonds:

  • Fancy colored diamonds are graded differently than colored diamonds. The 4Cs are used but the color, including intensity of color and hues, are considered the diamond’s most important attribute. Fancy colored diamonds are found in 12 different colors with more than 90 secondary hues and nine intensity levels within the 234 color combinations. Their rarity and beauty makes some of these diamonds worth well into the millions of dollars.
  • A five-carat fancy yellow diamond increased in value by 180 percent from 2001 to 2011 He compared that to Berkshire Hathaway stock, which increased by 52 percent for that 10-year period and Coca Cola, which grew 42.5 percent.
  • Natural fancy pink diamonds are fascinating to diamond lovers and collectors. How darling are these exquisite gems? Queen Elizabeth II and Victoria Beckham are well-known pink diamond lovers. A flower brooch encrusted with a 23.6 carat pink diamond is one of the queen’s beloved items and fashion icon Mrs. Beckham possesses a luxurious pink diamond engagement ring.
  • The positioning of fancy yellows is unique — they are the most popular natural fancy color diamonds while, relatively speaking of course, they are the most common ones. It is estimated that around 60% of all natural colored diamonds belong to the fancy yellow category.
  • Studies show that blue is the most unseen color in nature and the combination of the most valuable natural crystal, fortunate enough to encounter boron particles during its enigmatic birth (boron is the element which causes the blue color in a diamond) creates with no doubt the most desirable colored gem throughout history, auction sales and today’s market.
