Yellow Diamonds Are Rare and Expensive

wedding ring engagement ring diamond jewelry

Both yes and no! A yellow diamond with deep, bright hue can be extremely rare and valuable! Meanwhile, a softer yellow diamond will be less expensive and, depending on the tint, may pass for white to the untrained eye.

The price of fancy color diamonds varies depending on their fancy color grading, clarity, form, and other considerations. Each yellow diamond is graded by the GIA, who notes whether it is relatively colorless, has brownish overtones, or even orange choices.

What Factors Influence the Price of a Yellow Diamond?

The undertone of fancy color diamonds can have a significant role in determining their value. True yellow diamonds are more valuable than those with mild yellow undertones. Regardless of general value, some people prefer orange or brownish undertones in their yellow ring since it changes the hue of the yellow diamond in unique ways.

Yellow diamonds graded Fancy Vivid, often known as canary diamonds, are the most valuable and sought after of the yellow diamond grades. Yellow diamonds can be a pricey rarity or a low-cost gift, depending on their size, color intensity, and grade.

When it comes to the discernible value of these gems, personal preference rules supreme. As you progress to more deep coloring, the average individual will struggle to assess them, so they are more of a fun customizing choice than a ring budget statement.

How Do Yellow Lab Diamonds Get Their Color?

An interesting method is used to create lab-grown diamonds, and one of the steps is determining whether the diamond will be fancy colored or not. If it is determined that it should be a yellow diamond, nitrogen is introduced throughout the growing phase, giving these gems their yellow color. The more nitrogen injected, the brighter the hue!

Natural trace elements and chemicals aid in the formation of fancy-colored diamonds, but the lab growth technique lets us to harness those ingredients to produce purposely bright stones. Rather than guessing what color the diamond will be, manufacturing high-value stones like canary diamonds in a lab is becoming an exact science.

As lab-grown diamonds become more popular, they become more affordable for everyday use and add an exciting personal touch to people's engagement rings.

Lab-Grown Yellow Diamonds compared. Mined Yellow Diamonds

Because mined brilliant and strong yellow diamonds are rare, they are frequently highly valued. People had to wait for someone to uncover their future diamond before lab developing. The time spent waiting for a yellow diamond to emerge from the earth, combined with mining costs and the controlled commerce of these stones, drove up its price.
