About Fancy Yellow and Colored Diamonds
Most diamonds of value are thought to have a lack of color or
colorless but diamonds with strong color, or fancy colored diamonds, are more
rare and often more valuable. Fancy colored diamonds come is many colors
such as yellows, reds, pinks, blues, greens, purples and many shades in between.
The rarest are pink and red.
The fancy color in diamonds is produced during the diamond
formation from many factors such as impurities , trace elements or radiation
affecting the diamonds creation.
How are colors graded?
Fancy colored diamonds are grades in 2 ways: "hue" and "intensity." "Hue"
is the basic color of the diamond, yellow, blue, green etc. "Intensity" is
the degree to which the color is present. The more intense the color, the rarer
and more expensive the diamond.
GIA uses nine categories for color grades
Very Light (O-V)
Fancy Light (Past Z)
What about clarity in fancy colored diamonds?
Clarity is not as important a factor in fancy colored diamonds as in white
or colorless diamonds. In fact, many color grading certificates only grade
the color of the diamond and not the clarity.
Many times feathers or small crystal inclusions appear the same color as the
diamond and don't diminish the coloring of the diamond. In some
circumstances they may create the appearance of more brilliance.
As long as the diamond is considered "eye clean" to an untrained eye clarity is
not as crucial. However, fancy colored diamonds with clarities of VS or
better are more rare and command a higher price.
Color treatments in fancy colored diamonds
Irradiated diamonds are a common form of treating not so colored diamonds to
appear fancy in color. This is done through irradiation followed by
high heat. This process is usually permanent, but may change is high heat
is used during setting or repairs.
Gemesis cultured man made colored diamonds are grown in a laboratory to make
them affordable. Natural diamond of similar color are much more expensive.
