Fancy Colored Diamonds

What are Fancy Colored Diamonds?

Fancy colored diamonds are rare and valuable gemstones that captivate the hearts of many of our clients.  They captivate my heart and mind as well. 

The single quality that sets these stones apart from other diamonds is color.  In fact, diamonds come in every color of the rainbow. From the rarest red diamond to the elegant blue diamond, each fancy colored diamond is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece that communicates beauty, elegance, and sophistication.

Rarity is one thing that makes fancy colored diamonds so desirable. Unlike colorless diamonds, fancy colored diamonds have misplaced crystalline structures or other elemental inclusions that result in their distinct colors. For example, an addition of the element boron to the diamond’s characteristic carbon structure renders a diamond blue to the eye.  Nitrogen will yield yellows and oranges.  An exposure to naturally occurring radiation creates green diamonds.  The rarity of natural fancy color diamonds also contributes to their high value and price, making them a symbol of luxury and exclusivity.

But it’s not just their rarity and value that makes fancy colored diamonds so special. They exhibit the characteristic fire of diamond when exposed to natural sunlight. This stunning display of light and color is what makes fancy colored diamonds so captivating and mesmerizing — and, for example, what makes a blue diamond set apart from a similarly colored sapphire.

For those who appreciate the beauty and rarity of fancy colored diamonds, they are make a wonderful palette to create jeweled works of art. From geometric patterns to animal-inspired designs, there are endless possibilities when it comes to creating jewelry with fancy colored diamonds.

Our clients who purchase fancy colored diamonds are among a small group that we work with regularly. These stones are favored by discerning clients: A fancy colored diamond can an investment that keeps its value over time. In wedding rings, these exquisite stones also have a practical use of creating a symbol of the love and commitment of two people.

The fancy colored diamond is a gemstone that is both rare and valuable, possessing unique qualities that sets it apart from all other gemstones. From its stunning display of light and color to its design possibilities, there is no denying its allure. They are a true work of art that will be treasured for generations to come.
