Natural Fancy Color Diamond Jewelry
Considered one of the rarest and most sought-after stones in the world, a diamond is seen as the pinnacle of elegance, beauty, and sophistication. What many fail to understand is that natural fancy color diamonds are even rarer and more valuable compared to a traditional colorless diamond. At CJ Charles Jewelers, we understand that the uniquely stunning appearance of jewelry featuring fancy color diamonds may be what sets your collection apart from the rest and are pleased to offer an exceptional collection for you to view.
What are Fancy Natural Color Diamonds?
Just like their colorless counterparts, colored diamonds are created by extreme pressure exerted on carbon within the Earth over long periods of time. What makes them uniquely different is that a structural defect occurs during creation which changes how light passes through the diamond, producing a beautiful color when seen in the face-up position. Exceedingly rare, it is believed that only about 1 out of 100,000 diamonds contain the specific natural defects that make them a "fancy color diamond".
Types of Fancy Color Diamonds
Depending on how the diamond developed, its colors can range the entire visible spectrum. Although all varieties have an alluring quality, certain colors are much rarer meaning they are often more expensive. A good rule to follow is the darker the hue of the diamond, the more valuable it usually is.
Typically, yellow diamonds and brown diamonds are the most common and plentiful fancy color diamonds. They are often called canary diamonds and champagne diamonds, respectively, due to their distinct appearances. Since these are most common, they are usually the most affordable. Pink diamonds and blue diamonds are slightly less common but can still command a powerful price if the diamond color is particularly strong. The most scarce naturally mined colored diamonds come in red, green, orange, and purple colors, meaning that they often are the hardest to find and command a staggering price.
How are Fancy Color Diamonds Used in Jewelry?
The intrinsic beauty found in a fancy color diamond means that they can produce some of the most eye-catching jewelry. Not only is fancy color diamond jewelry incredibly pleasing to the eye, but it can also be more expensive than a similar article featuring a natural diamond.
Just like other diamonds and gemstones, one can find necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and colored diamond rings at most jewelry shops. Many jewelers tend to pair a fancy diamond with a corresponding metal that complements the gem's unique color, like matching a yellow gold with a fancy diamond with a lighter hue to produce a shimmering glow.
