Padis Jewelry has something to please everyone. Along with our huge inventory of certified loose diamonds, at least 10,000 in stock at all times, we also offer customers a select collection of magnificent fancy color diamonds. These rare and extremely unique diamonds are treasures and will certainly become family heirlooms for many years to come.
The Gemological Institute of America reminds us that rarity equals value, which is why fancy color diamonds are so expensive. For the majority of diamonds, their value is based on the absence of color, and that the more colorless stones are the most valuable. In the case of fancy color diamonds (those outside the normal color range), the GIA states “the rarest and most valuable colors are saturated pinks, blues, and greens.” They add that “even very slight color differences can have a big impact on value.”
The rarest of fancy color diamonds have red, green or blue hues, and stones with medium to dark tones and moderate saturations. Brown diamonds are the most common colored stones and are often called cognac or champagne diamonds. Yellow diamonds are the second most common and come in a wide range of saturations. They are sometimes referred to as canary diamonds.
Extremely rare blue diamonds have a slight hint of gray, which is caused by the presence of boron impurities, and the more boron, the more saturated the color. Red or reddish diamonds are extremely rare, and pure pink colored stones are more sought after than hues of purple, orange, browns or gray.
If you are interested in fancy color diamonds, we encourage you visit the Padis Jewelry website to take a look at some of our very rare and exquisite stones. All of our stones are certified by the top labs in the industry such as AGS, Forevermark, GIA and EGL USA.
