As of late, we've been swooning over colorless diamond alternatives. White diamonds can be substituted with a variety of gemstones, including moissanites, semiprecious stones, and precious stones. White diamonds with a color grade of J or above are typically requested by our clientele. As a result, the diamond is completely white and free of any yellow undertones. A different type of technically white diamond, on the other hand, frequently goes unnoticed. These X, Y, and Z-colored diamonds are excellent choices for a center diamond at a reasonable price.
There must be billions of carbon atoms in a 1 carat diamond for it to be colorless, and all of those atoms must be carbon. It only takes a tiny stray particle to create a unique colored diamond. Boron creates blue diamonds, nitrogen creates yellow diamonds, natural radiation from nearby rocks trap electrons to create green surface colors, and pink or red shades are thought to be caused by changes to the electron structure on their way up.
It begins with D, which is the whitest white diamond, and proceeds alphabetically down to Z. Yellow diamonds are found in the X, Y, Z color spectrum. Inclusion of nitrogen in the raw diamond causes the yellow color. It's easy to replace carbon in the creation process with nitrogen atoms because they are so similar. Fancy yellow diamonds should not be mistaken for this sort of diamond. The fancy light and beyond range of fancy yellow diamonds follows directly on from the X Y Z scale of fancy yellow diamonds. Because of their rarity and eye-catching yellow hue, fancy yellow diamonds command a high price. For those who love yellow and are on a budget, an X Y Z colored diamond is an excellent option to explore.
Pricing When compared to the near-colorless and colorless range of a harsh white diamond, you can save a lot of money with XYZ color diamonds. Greater carat weight and higher clarity grades are available at reduced prices. However, keep in mind that these pale yellow diamonds will cost more than a diamond in the "K" to "P" color range because they are less appealing to the eye. In order to enhance the yellow color of the center princess cut yellow diamond, the bottom prongs of this handmade engagement ring are made of yellow gold. The white gold halo looks stunning with the addition of a yellow gold band. Take into consideration that a 1.5 carat white diamond will cost upwards of $10,000 more than the $6500 setting price for this stone.
You can acquire a nearly 2 carat pear-shaped diamond in the center for around $10,000, even with this elaborate setting, which includes an elegant split band and a light yellow pear-shaped diamond halo.
Inspiring thoughts We use these XYZ diamonds in several of our custom ring designs as the center diamond. Most importantly, if you want to enhance the diamond's golden hue, place it against a yellow background. Setting a yellow diamond in a white gold or platinum halo is one of our favorite looks. The white diamond halo truly brings out the color of the yellow diamond in the center. To the right, you'll find a variety of double-halo design..
This adds a lot of glitter to the ring by increasing the surface area of it. In addition, we made the basket in which the diamond rests entirely of yellow gold. This is a great way to intensify the yellow diamond. It looks like a gorgeous yellow diamond at a fraction of the price when it's set up this way!
Even though the halo is made of white gold, it's a good idea to choose yellow gold for the prongs that hold the diamond. This way, the prongs match the golden tone of the diamond perfectly.
