Where Do Colored Diamonds Come From?
Did you know that colored diamonds often get their unique hues from chemical reactions and imperfections? Yellow diamonds, for example, are formed from nitrogen, while green diamonds are a result of radiation. Some colored diamonds, such as red, blue, and pink diamonds are incredibly rare!
A Quick Guide To Colored Diamond Engagement Rings
Traditional “white” diamonds are measured on a color scale of D through Z, from colorless to light color. True colored diamonds, or “fancy diamonds,” are graded on a separate scale.
When it comes to colored diamond engagement rings, the most popular fancy diamonds are brown, “chocolate” diamonds, and yellow, “canary” diamonds. With either option, you’ll find a range of unique hues that may surprise you! Brown diamonds, for example, sometimes appear pink or smoky gray in certain light. White diamonds can change color as well!
