FANCY COLOURED DIAMOND

on Tuesday, 18 March 2014. Posted in Blog

<p>As by the general perception of the people, diamonds are often imagined as colorless through light yellow and they are described using the industry‚Äôs color-grading scale from D - Z.</p> 
<p>Apart from normal colorless (transparent) diamonds, fancy color diamonds are yellow and brown in color that display color beyond the range Z, or diamonds that exhibit any other color face-up. These unusual variety of diamonds come in every color of the spectrum, but mainly-blue, green, pink, and red.</p>

<p>When the color of the diamond becomes more obvious(more yellowish), its value decreases in the range from D - Z. But in the care of Fancy Diamonds, the situation reverses, that is, the value of fancy diamonds generally increases with the strength and purity of the color. Those fancy diamonds which are large in shape and vivid, are extremely rare and very valuable. However, many fancy diamond colors are muted rather than pure and strong.</p>


<p>People can find fancy colored diamonds in almost any color, like Red, green, purple, and orange - generally the most rare, followed by pink and blue. The yellow and brown colored fancy diamonds are the most common, and are generally less valuable than the rare fancy colored diamonds.</p>


<p>Diamonds in colors like black, gray, and fancy whites are considered fancies, too. Spectacular prices in high-profile auctions are another factor in the increased awareness of fancy color diamonds. Not all fancy color diamonds command such high prices, however. Many people consider yellow and brown fancies less desirable than near-colorless stones of equal weight and clarity. And deeper yellows and browns are generally less valuable than other fancy colors.</p>
