Yellow Diamonds – An Information Guide

There has always been a lot of interest in yellow diamonds and I have recently come across an article from GIA that answers a lot of common questions.

When dealing with yellow diamonds and coloured diamonds in general, you know to throw out what you know about white diamonds as the same rules do not apply. With white diamonds cut and proportions are the most important ingredients to get that all important life and sparkle, this is not the case with yellow diamonds. Of course you still want a well cut diamond, but where white diamonds are cut to reduce the visibility of any colour, yellow diamonds are cut to retain the colour.

Another concern clients have with yellow diamonds is how to set them to maximise the colour – is to use white gold for the contrast or yellow gold to enhance – even rose gold for something totally unique? This article answers a lot of these questions and can be accessed by the following link:
