Loose Yellow Diamonds

Buying loose diamonds has become somewhat of a trend nowadays, for a number of good reasons like flexibility in settings and jewelry designs, profitability on resale, means of portable wealth and investment, and ideal as gifts. And since we are on the subject of trends, the latest fashion has seen celebrities and elites moving away from the traditional colorless or white diamonds to fancy colored counterparts. From the rarest loose yellow diamonds to pink, brown, purple, blue, orange, green, black, etc, you can get your hands on the color of your choice provided you pay its premium worth.

Traditionally rare to find, these beautiful stones can now be procured online, in just a few mouse clicks. Even though finding a reliable diamond provider may take some research and time, the effort is worth it if you find your stone. The yellow stone has a lot of prestige attached to it, though it is less expensive than a top quality white diamond. This may translate into you being able to buy a bigger yellow diamond at a reasonable rate. If you are looking for the perfect diamond for an engagement ring, the yellow may be ideal to set the bar for its exclusivity.

One of the most famous yellow diamonds is the Golden Eye Diamond, which is said to be the world’s largest flawless Canary Yellow diamond and weighs 43.51 carats. Of course, for an engagement ring on your delicate fingers a carat or two is ideal. Once you know what cut, move onto deciding the color. Most light yellow diamonds are cut into radiant or cushion shapes because it brings out the color more than any other shape, and fall in the color grading scale from ‘D’ to ‘Z’ according to the Gemological Institute of America, also known widely as GIA. It is wise to look for a high color grade as opposed to clarity as color affects the price of yellow diamonds much more than clarity does, for example a fancy yellow diamond with a vs1 clarity is the same price as a vs2 clarity, all else being equal. Carat of a buy however, is better determined by the budget you have in mind. Remembering that beauty lies in simplicity is vital, and with the yellow glory you wish to purchase, just that one stone in a 18kt yellow gold ring can not only bring out the simplicity of the creation, but also highlight the diamond’s color.

Finding a provider that is trustworthy is the most important aspect in buying loose yellow diamonds. Once you have narrowed down your search, look for references and testimonials to ensure professionalism. Since the color tones of yellow diamonds vary to a great extent, ask for guidance before making the buy. Happy shopping!
