Fancy Color Diamond Quality Factors

A great description and explanation of fancy color diamonds from gia.edu

In diamonds, rarity equals value. With diamonds in the normal range, value is based on the absence of color, because colorless diamonds are the rarest. With fancy color diamonds—the ones outside the normal color range—the rarest and most valuable colors are saturated pinks, blues, and greens. In all cases, even very slight color differences can have a big impact on value.

Compared to fancy yellows and browns, diamonds with a noticeable hint of any other hue are considerably more rare. Even in light tones and weak saturation, as long as they show color in the face-up position, they qualify as fancy colors. Red, green, and blue diamonds with medium to dark tones and moderate saturations are extremely rare.

Grading fancy color diamonds is complex and specialized, and it takes highly trained laboratory graders to complete the process accurately.

The GIA system for color-grading fancy color diamonds is designed to accommodate the fact that not all colored diamonds have the same depth of color. For example, yellow diamonds occur in a wide range of saturations, while blue diamonds do not.

Fancy Color Yellow Diamond Chart

Fancy color diamonds have a range of color strength with the intense and vivid colored diamonds being the most rare.

Diamonds with red or reddish colors are extremely rare and highly valued. Pure pinks are more popular than diamonds that are purplish, orangy, brownish, or grayish. Trade professionals market some very attractive stones in this category as “rose-colored,” and some stones with purplish tints as “mauve” diamonds.

Blue diamonds are extremely rare. They generally have a slight hint of gray, so they’re rarely as highly saturated as blue sapphires. Their color is caused by the presence of boron impurities—the more boron, the deeper the blue.

10 Carat Buccellati Ring

This 10 carats of Buccellati perfection currently in the Iconic Jewels salon in Beverly Hills speaks for itself.  A stunning one-of-a-kind piece designed by one of the most respected houses in the business.

Buccellati is one of the world’s most renowned high jewelry houses, celebrated for its craftsmanship, design, and one of kind masterpieces.

The story of Buccellati began with an eighteenth-century silversmith, Contardo Buccellati, who opened an atelier for silverware and jewelry in Milan, Italy. The house was revived in 1919 by Mario Buccellati, one of his relatives, a goldsmith whose inherent passion to transform metals and precious stones into beautiful works of art has inspired a tradition carried down through four generations of the family owned business. Since 1919, a Buccellati family member has designed every piece coming out of the house, beginning with Mario who was followed by his son, Gianmaria. Gianmaria’s son, Andrea, now assumes creative direction over the brand. Alongside is his daughter, Lucrezia, the youngest generation and first female designer, who now assumes a co-design role.

With Lucrezia working side by side with Andrea, it is only natural for her to absorb the knowledge and tradition he continues as well as challenge Andrea and the family’s expert artisans with her modern interpretation and unexpected products ranging from tech accessories to bridal jewelry.
