The Complete Guide to Yellow Diamond Engagement Rings

wedding ring engagement ring diamond jewelry

White diamonds will always have our hearts, but yellow diamonds have them beat when it comes to rarer stones. They are not only exceptional, but they also stand out in a sea of colorless diamonds.

When it comes to yellow diamonds, there are numerous hues to choose from, which colorless diamonds do not have. "A fancy colored yellow diamond is one that falls outside of the traditional D-Z color grade scale. The GIA grades colored diamonds into one of six color grades: Fancy Light, Fancy Yellow, Fancy Dark, Fancy Deep, Fancy Intense, and Fancy Vivid, which indicate the intensity of the yellow color."

The Advantages and Disadvantages of Yellow Diamond Engagement Rings

Yellow diamonds may be the answer if you are looking for a truly unique engagement ring. Consider that diamonds have greater brilliance than gemstones, so if you like yellow, consider how much shinier your ring will be if you go with the yellow diamond. So glittery! Yellow diamonds look stunning in a variety of stone shapes and settings, whether set in yellow, white, or rose gold or platinum. "A yellow diamond has the advantage of being more rare and unique - your ring will definitely stand out".

Yellow diamonds, on the other hand, are extremely rare, making it more difficult to find the perfect stone. "The disadvantage of a yellow diamond is that stones with a nice intense color and a high quality make are very rare and difficult to find". "The quality of yellow diamonds is also more difficult to navigate, so make sure you buy from a reputable source."

How to Choose a Yellow Diamond Engagement Ring

  • What stone cut complements yellow diamonds the best?

    When it comes to yellow diamonds, a radiant cut is preferable to a step cut. "The radiant cut, like the cushion cut, is a great and popular choice for a yellow diamond". "Both cuts' facets and shape balance the most vibrant yellow color possible with the highest brilliance achievable to give you that sparkle."

  • What settings and metals complement yellow diamonds the best?

    When selecting a setting for a yellow diamond, keep in mind that the metal of the setting will influence the appearance of the diamond. "The metal you choose for your setting will definitely affect the appearance of the diamond. Yellow gold will intensify the diamond's yellow and is the more popular choice when setting a yellow diamond. White gold or platinum settings will give the yellow diamond a lighter hue, but can create a beautiful contrast between the setting and the diamond, allowing the yellow diamond to shine and pop."

  • How long do yellow diamonds last?

    Yellow diamonds, like all diamonds, have the same level of durability. Diamonds are the hardest gemstone, with a Mohs hardness rating of 10. This means that a yellow diamond engagement ring will stand the test of time.

  • What is the price of yellow diamond engagement rings?

    It really depends on the color intensity and secondary hue of the diamond. "Yellow diamonds can be quite affordable, sometimes costing less than a colorless diamond of the same quality if it has a lighter yellow coloring, such as Fancy Yellow; if a diamond has a brown hue, the price will be even lower; a Fancy Intense Yellow diamond or a Fancy Vivid Yellow diamond will cost more than a colorless diamond."

How to Look After Your Yellow Diamond Ring

Taking care of a yellow diamond is similar to taking care of any other diamond. Simply apply a small amount of soapy liquid to the diamond and gently scrub it with a toothbrush or another gentle jewelry cleaning tool. Remove the soap with warm water and pat dry with a clean towel.
