Why Are Diamonds Yellow?

The most popular of colored stones, yellow diamonds represent more than half of all fancy colored diamonds naturally produced. Also referred to as Canary diamonds, their color is due to the presence of nitrogen in the stone. This absorbs blue light and creates the color yellow.

What Types Of Yellow Diamonds Can You Sell?

We purchase yellow diamonds of:

  • 5ct and larger
  • Fancy light or better
  • Must be Natural colored diamonds
  • Fancy greenish yellow diamonds also

Fancy Greenish Yellow Diamonds

Some colored diamonds contain more than one color. When this is the case, the last color is the primary color, and the first color is the modifier.

Fancy Greenish Yellow Diamonds

Fancy greenish yellow diamonds are an example of this. The green modifier adds to the value of your yellow stone, as green is a rarer color than yellow

How Much Is A Yellow Diamond Worth?

The value of your yellow diamonds is based on a multitude of factors. Some of the most important ones include: color, carat weight, clarity, shape and fluorescence.

COLOR

Colored diamonds range in color from Faint to Fancy Vivid. Unlike white diamonds, the more color in your fancy colored stone, the more valuable it is. Therefore the more intense and vivid the yellow, the more the diamond is worth.

Color is made up of 3 components: hue, saturation and tone.

CARAT WEIGHT

Carat weight, abbreviated to ct, plays a crucial role in the value of your yellow diamond. The higher the carat weight (and therefore size of your stone), the more valuable it is.

CLARITY

Clarity grades range from FL (flawless) – I3 (included). It refers to the presence or absence of flaws or blemishes in your diamond. Flaws are internal imperfections, blemishes are external imperfections. There are a wide range of possible imperfections, some of the most common ones are:

  • Feather: small crack in the diamond
  • Crystal: mineral in the diamond
  • Pinpoint: tiny crystals

SHAPE

Some shapes are more desirable than others. Rounds, pear shapes and ovals are more valuable than a radiant, in fancy colors, for example.

FLUORESCENCE

Fluorescence can actually impact the value of a colored diamond, particularly the more expensive ones, by more than it does with a white diamond as it can make the color look lighter than it really is.
