Yellow Diamonds - The Very Highest Quality Diamonds

The first and only website which deals exclusively with the subject of Yellow diamonds.

Now Available

Natural fancy coloured diamonds are very rare and expensive. Most people believe that yellow diamonds are less desirable and valuable than white diamonds. While this is true of faintly coloured or off-white diamonds, intensely coloured diamonds are very attractive, rare and expensive. The Kimberley Octahedron is the largest diamond in the world at about 616 carats, and is yellow.

Natural or Enhanced?

Natural intense fancy yellow diamonds are so rare that most jewellers have never seen one, and will never own one. In recent years, treatment processes have been developed to alter the colour of some diamonds, but so far all of the fancy yellow diamonds we have bought are believed to be treated.

How Rare?

In our first twenty years of designing diamond rings, we had only owned 5 coloured diamonds, four of which were certificated as natural. Among the 100 largest diamonds in the world about 30 are yellow, one is fancy yellow, and one is treated yellow, although there are a number of other famous yellow diamonds. In recent years the Argyle mine in Australia has produced a relatively large number of fancy coloured diamonds including yellow ones.

How Expensive?

Quality for quality, fancy yellow diamonds are more expensive than ordinary near-colourless ones. We have seen high prices quoted for yellow diamonds, but we manage to source small numbers at reasonable prices.

What About Citirnes, Topaz, or Yellow Sapphires?

Why bother to get so excited about yellow diamonds, when we could use citrines, topaz, or yellow sapphires instead? The very best sapphires are quite expensive, and they still do not have the sparkle that yellow diamonds possess. In addition even though sapphires are very hard and durable, diamonds are many times harder and even more durable.

More Information

For more information about yellow diamonds, please follow the links at the top left of this page. We also have pages about cut, shape, & clarity of yellow diamonds, and colour in general.

Rings

We design and create diamond rings, and we have found that many other people share our love of yellow diamonds and other fancy colours. So far we have only made a small number of rings using yellow diamonds, but we are busy right now with a few new ones. The problem seems to be that we sell them as fast as we can find the diamonds, and make the rings.

Pendants & Ear-Rings

We have also made a few pendants, and are about to produce our first pair of yellow diamond ear-rings. Because of the variation in colours, and the small numbers of yellow diamonds we get to see, it is not easy to find matching pairs of yellow diamonds for ear-rings. Watch this space. Actually look out for new links near the top left of this page.
