Loose Yellow Diamonds

Today’s world is governed by trends and fashion. The royals and celebrities that walk at red carpet events are some of the main trendsetters for jewelry. In view of this fact, it comes as no surprise that even though yellow diamonds were first presented to the general public in the late 1800s, with celebrities and elite sporting these yellow beauties at world events other diamond lovers followed suit. These days loose yellow diamonds are in high demands and many collectors are ready to spend big money to acquire such unusual stones. In fact, recently the 110.03 carat Sun Drop Diamond, which is the world’s largest pear-shaped yellow diamond, was sold for a record price of $12.36 million at the Sotheby’s Geneva auction in Switzerland.

There is no doubt about the exquisite beauty yellow diamonds bring to any piece of jewelry, whether it be earrings, pendants, bracelets, rings or necklaces. And buying these loose diamonds is a wise choice, given that it provides you with a flexibility to choose your own design and create an exclusive article unlike the retail options available at your favorite jewelry store. While it is believed that most buyers that are interested in procuring loose yellow diamonds are not first time diamond buyers, and probably own a colorless diamond or two, there are some aspects that need to be kept in mind while out shopping for yellow diamonds or any other colored diamond.

It may be of the essence to realize that unlike colorless diamonds, the most important C in yellow diamonds is their color grades. These diamonds are graded from lighter to darker hues, with the darker stones being rarer and in turn worth much more. Intense yellow stones can be quite expensive, but rest assured that their value will appreciate and their beauty will make heads turn every place you go. Yellow diamonds look beautiful when set in yellow gold, as color of the metal deepens the color of the diamond. On the other hand, diamonds that possess a dark hue of yellow look superb when set in white gold or platinum, as it showcases the stone’s color and cut better.

When considering the 4 Cs for loose yellow diamonds, you may settle for a lower clarity grade in case of budget restraints. The color of such diamonds and their cut grades are far more crucial in enhancing the stone’s beauty. It may be advisable to look for diamond traders or wholesale dealers for such purchases, rather than conventional retail jewelry stores. This will not only ensure that you acquire the diamonds at a reasonable price, but also provide you with a better selection in quality diamonds. All you need to do is find a well-known and reliable company.
