Unmatched Color & Clarity
Fancy diamonds are extremely rare — only one in 10,000 has a noticeable color — and exceptionally beautiful. Yellow, pink, red, green, blue, brown: There is a diamond to match every preference, mood and meaning. But how do these brilliant beauties happen? Impurities, elements or structural defects in chemical composition — all considered imperfections in other gems — are precisely what make fancy diamonds extraordinary. The rarer and more vivid the color, the higher the diamond’s value will be. Stunning and dramatic, these gems are miracles of nature.
Look for a fancy diamond that is richly, evenly colored. Unlike with white diamonds, a great body color is more important than clarity. Fancy diamonds are cut a bit differently, too. The goal is to maximize their unusual color instead of their flashes of light. And, something to consider: Fancy colored diamonds are a phenomenal way to store wealth in a highly portable form — with the marvelous benefit of making for a stunning piece of jewelry.
Below, explore how each fancy diamond is formed — and all the meanings they possess.
