Yellow Diamond Rings
YDiamond’s collection of Yellow Diamond Rings is among the largest and most illustrious in the world. Yellow Diamonds have become the

Nowhere are they more beautiful nor more affordable than at YDiamonds, who surely will become your Fancy Yellow Jeweler for life due to
the quality of their merchandise and their customer service.
The near-indestructible diamond is formed deep within the earth where high heat and intense pressure are applied to carbon, sometimes for billions of years. Once in a while, the process is disrupted when a foreign element, in the case nitrogen, interacts with the carbon. The result is the warm and dazzling yellow diamond. So why isn’t such a rare diamond much more expensive than white diamonds? It’s the law of supply and demand. The demand for yellow diamonds has been lower historically.
However, times are changing. Demand is increasing, which means prices will rise and yellow diamonds will appreciate, potentially outpacing white diamonds in price. Not only is it a good time to indulge yourself or a loved one with a yellow diamond ring, it is a great time to invest in yellow diamonds.
Firstly, you can rest assured that all YDiamonds have passed the Kimberly Process Certification Scheme (KPCS), meaning that the diamonds are “conflict free,” sourced and shipped humanely and legally.
YDiamonds offers yellow diamond rings in varying degrees of intensity—more intense = rarer = more expensive. The stones run the gamut from light yellow to fancy light yellow to fancy yellow to fancy intense yellow to the “elite” of yellow diamonds: the fancy vivid yellow that is found in Canary Diamond Rings. Accordingly, the pale diamonds cost less, the more colorful cost more and the pure yellow of the Canary Diamond is the highest in cost. Some stones have a cast of another color in them: brown, orange or green. For those who find that appealing and intriguing, the extra color comes at a lower cost.
Color can be enhanced by the setting. For instance, a yellow diamond set into a yellow gold bezel or sunk into a yellow gold tub can make a fancy light yellow appear as a fancy yellow and so on. On the other hand, a white gold or platinum mounting, especially when surrounded by white pave diamonds, throws the spotlight on the yellow center stone.
The cut of the stone also affects the depth of the color. The Radiant and Cushion cuts maximize color over brilliance. Oval and Pear cuts display the color well also. Rounds, Asschers, Princess, and Emerald cuts are less apt to show off yellow diamonds to their best advantage. However, if you find, for instance, a Round stone imbued with color or an Emerald cut, you have something precious and very expensive.
