Persuasion of coloured diamonds
July 27, 2020 • 4 min read
When it comes to diamond jewellery, there is nothing bolder than a coloured diamond centre stone. With many options available, coloured diamonds are indeed a magical feature that stands out from the rest.
As one of the most extensive jewellers in Sydney, we have a collection unlike any other, so we certainly love our coloured diamonds.
Do you want to understand coloured diamonds and discover why this might be what you needed? Keep reading below.
What are coloured diamonds?
Fancy coloured diamonds are precisely that — diamonds with colour. These gemstones offer a compelling variety that a clear diamond cannot.
Not only do they add colour and character to a jewellery design, but they also come in a broad range of hues that are utterly enchanting and astonishing to witness. The variety of colours include, but are not limited to, yellow, pink, red, black, purple and blue.
Rarer than a colourless diamond, these stones exceed the standard D-Z chart. Due to their strong tones and tints, coloured diamonds have their own grading chart that is assessed on their hue, tone and colour saturation.
Introduced in the mid-90s by GIA, these classes included Faint, Very Light, Light, Fancy Light, Fancy, Fancy Dark and Fancy Intense.
Although many are lab-created to manipulate the colour or tone of the stone, lots of coloured diamonds are natural. The formation process is near the same as a clear diamond. However, foreign particles get trapped within the crystallisation process. Because of these particles, the chemicals in the process change, impacting the colour of the diamond.
What makes coloured diamonds so appealing?
As mentioned earlier, coloured diamonds provide a character and sense of colour that a colourless diamond cannot offer.
Their stunning tones and different options make coloured diamonds a true art that many desire to incorporate into their fashion. From dress jewellery to engagement rings, they provide that splash of colour and sophistication many strive to possess.
Amongst their vibrant tones, coloured diamonds are also considered rare. Because of this uncommon status, many of them are highly sought-after.
This makes the stones not only exclusive, but also less accessible than your simple colourless diamond. This gives it further appeal to those in the jewellery market.
