A Diamond of a Different Color
Diamonds Article by: DiamondonNet 10-18-2007
A beautiful, yellow, canary diamond is sure to catch everyone's eye. It is a bright, brilliant and colorful alternative for people who want unique jewelry pieces.

A chemically pure and structurally perfect diamond is completely colorless and transparent. A true white diamond is very rare, as most natural stones have some slight hue variation.

The majority of mined white diamonds have some slight pale yellow or brown discoloration. These imperfections are considered within the normal color range. Depending on the hue and intensity of a diamond's coloration, its tint can either detract or enhance its value. When a stone's color is stronger than the standard "Z" grading, it is categorized as a fancy color diamond.

Colorless diamonds are normally the highest priced stones. The value of a fancy color diamond can surpass that of white gems if the intensity is high and the hue is rare.

Yellow diamonds are the most common fancy color diamonds. They occur when the presence of nitrogen impurities absorb the blue end of the color spectrum. The GIA (Gemological Institute of America) grades these stones by quantifying the saturation, hue and value (darkness), by utilizing nine classifications ranging from faint to vivid. Carat weight is also a major factor in grading fancy color diamonds, followed by clarity.

White diamonds continue to be the classic industry standard. Most people purchase these stones for their fine jewelry investments. But yellow fancy colored stones are gaining in popularity. These diamonds often appear in engagement rings, three-stone rings and high- fashion jewelry.

DiamondonNet.com manufactures and imports the finest diamonds. They sell a variety of yellow fancy colored stones.

With several years of experience in the jewelry buying business, the professionals at DiamondonNet.com provide a reliable, stress-free solution for online diamond shoppers.
