You may have seen colored diamonds before but do you know how fancy yellow diamonds are created? Keep reading to learn more about fancy yellow diamonds and how to accessorize them in your jewelry!
Did you know that fancy yellow diamonds are actually found in nature? These gorgeous yellow beauties are in fact naturally occurring and not created in a lab. However, there aren’t too many yellow diamonds to go around. Yellow diamonds are so rare that only 1 carat is found for every 10,000 carats of diamonds mined.
According to the G.I.A, “yellow diamonds are considered to be a colored diamond and graded as “Fancy” when they fall outside the D-to-Z range (colorless to light-yellow).”
But not all fancy yellow diamonds have a naturally rich and vivid yellow color. Some of these diamonds are heat treated or coated to enhance or change their yellow color. However, treating the color of a diamond can actually negatively impact the resell value of a diamond.
