How To Choose a Yellow Diamond

Some of us think of diamonds as only being clear. Although crystal diamonds are the most commonly used in the world, the gemstone actually come in a wide range of shades, such as yellow-coloured. Weak yellow-coloured gemstones are also known as canary diamonds and cost less than the more deeply-coloured ones. Dark coloured yellow diamonds are typically more rare and expensive.

There are several popular yellow-coloured gemstones, such as the Allnatt, Oppenheimer, Celebrity of Serenity, Hope of Africa, Florentine and Kimberley Octahedron, a 616-carat yellow-coloured precious rock that is found in South Africa. The depth of the colours usually sets the price of yellow diamond. The deeper it is, the more expensive it will be. Shade is the most essential aspect when analysing a yellow-coloured precious rock. As opposed to other gemstones, the quality of the yellow-coloured precious rock is more essential than cut. A yellow diamond with very deep colour is likely to be unaffordable for most of us. Moreover, less cloudy yellow diamond with saturated colours will be valued very high.
