YDiamonds is a respected authority on Yellow Diamonds with a magnificent collection of Yellow Diamond Necklaces. Yellow diamonds are the most treasured of all colored diamonds, especially the vivid canary yellow diamonds, also called “fancy yellows.”
Genuine diamonds formed 100 miles or more deep inside the earth over billions of years. Volcanic-like eruptions projected them to the earth’s upper mantle carried by mounds of lava. During the process, foreign elements can interfere, and colored diamonds are produced. When nitrogen is the element interacting with the carbon, the result is the warm brilliance of yellow diamonds.
It’s difficult to imagine when we look at the glorious sunny glow of yellow diamonds, but historically, they were not as prized as white diamonds, and the law of supply and demand kept the prices on the lower end of the spectrum. You will still find that most yellow diamonds are less expensive than most white diamonds. That situation is going to change dramatically as more and more people become familiar with them and are drawn to them. It also doesn’t hurt that yellow diamonds have become the “in” stone among celebrities and socialites, those high-fashion influencers. It’s not too late to take advantage of the beautiful but affordable yellow diamonds, and no where are they more beautiful or more affordable than at YDiamonds.
If you are new to yellow diamonds, let us give you a brief introduction to get you started. An experienced and helpful YDiamond consultant will take you the rest of the way.
Cut is the most important factor when determining the value of white diamonds. Color is the most important factor with yellow diamonds that are graded according to intensity ranging from a weak yellow to a very strong one. The more intense the color, the more expensive the stone. The scale is Faint, Very Light, Light, Fancy Light, Fancy, Fancy Dark, Fancy Deep, Fancy Intense and Fancy Vivid (aka Canary). The faint, very light and light yellow diamonds are referred to collectively as Cape Diamonds for their point of origin, Cape Province in South Africa. Some yellow diamonds have secondary hues, such as brown, green or orange. The hues modify the pure yellow color with varying results. Often, the combinations of primary and secondary colors (and there more than 200 combinations possible) often form unusual, fascinating and very desirable patterns of colors. You can wear quite a conversation piece at a lower cost.
It doesn’t matter if your yellow diamond necklace is the most ornate or the most simple, it will brighten any outfit as well as your mood! Below, we have the high-fashion accessories most popular today:
Bib necklaces are often the favorite piece in any lady’s jewelry chest. It is dramatic and yet can be worn with anything for any occasion, from casual to black tie.
The classic choker or “collar” necklace is for the more conservative. A yellow diamond in a solitaire setting that sits at your collarbone is always eye-catching, flattering and stylish. Wear with a collared blouse, a boat neck top or a strapless evening gown.
Layering necklaces in a mix and match of different length chains, different settings and varying hues is a stylish way to show off several of your yellow diamonds all at once!
