Color diamonds are given names as part of an internationally accepted system, developed by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). First, the carat size is stated. Then, the intensity of the stone is mentioned. Next, any secondary hue (also called overtone colors) is described. Finally, the dominant color of the high quality stone is mentioned last.
In addition to the name yellow diamond, there are also a number of nicknames that have been developed over time. For example, some people call a canary diamond a zimmy. The term canary diamond refers to a vivid yellow diamond, with a saturation and tone of yellow that are both extremely intense.
Zimmy, a term used to describe extra-vivid yellow diamonds, actually refers to stones that originated from the Zimmy Mine, which is located in Sierra Leone.
Yellow diamond prices
Though yellow diamonds and canary diamonds are less rare than other colors, they can be quite affordable and sometimes cost less than a colorless diamond of the same quality.
A diamond with a lighter yellow coloring, such as Fancy Yellow, will be less expensive than a colorless diamond. If you’re looking for a diamond, you should know that fancy intense yellow and fancy vivid yellow diamonds cost more than a lighter yellow diamond.
Yellow diamonds are the most rare color of diamonds that come from the earth. Though they have a lower price per carat than other colors, their rarity and stunning appearance make them just as desirable as the rest.
The brighter and more intense it is, the more expensive the stone. The most important features that confer the value of a yellow diamond are its color and brightness.
Fancy colors are more rare and more valuable than other colors. In other words, yellow diamonds with a fancy light yellow diamond color or even a fancy yellow color is cheaper per carat than most other color with a similar intensity grade.
The stones of true yellow diamonds have a high intensity grade. They surpass the price per carat of a white diamond and will be less expensive than similar blue diamonds, green diamonds, pink diamonds or purple diamonds.
People are often confused as to why yellow diamonds have a lower price per carat than other colored diamonds. Natural diamonds of a higher intensity grade are more rare, and therefore much more desirable.
The color is synonymous with rarity and luxury. This is because their rarity makes them so beautiful and highly desired that people will pay for them despite the price.
Rare natural yellow diamonds
Since ancient times, natural diamonds have been prized for their hardness and used in jewelry and other applications.
Now, the basic elements that cause color can occur anywhere on earth, but they are more common in some places than others due to the presence of certain elements.
While yellow diamonds are rare in the world of color, they are found less than a thousandth as often as white stones. It’s true. Only 0.0001% of mined diamonds are fancy colors. As you can see, yellow diamonds are in fact a common diamond color, but don’t let that fool you. It doesn’t matter how common it is; it’s rich and luxurious. Diamonds today are known as one of the most precious gemstones.
Yellow diamonds can be found throughout the world in several different countries, but the most well-known are Australia, Central Africa, Angola, Borneo, Brazil, Democratic Republic of Congo and Sierra Leone.
Diamonds in different cuts and shapes
They come in all cuts and shapes (cushion, radiant, square, emerald, heart, oval, triangle, pear, princess, round,…) just like regular colorless ones. They can be found in a variety of sizes as well as various color intensities.
The yellow tint in these gems gives them an additional dimension that can’t be found in other types of diamonds. A yellow diamond is not only a beautiful piece of jewelry but also a rare commodity that can be passed down through generations.
The intensities go from light yellow to fancy light yellow diamond and to the fancy yellow diamond and all the way to the beautiful, rare and expensive fancy intense yellow diamond and vivid yellow diamond in fancy light pink diamond – very elegant.
The value of yellow diamonds
Because fancy yellow diamonds are often found in large quantities, they are actually considered less valuable than a rare, colorless diamond.
The value of any diamond is determined by several important characteristics. Although two diamonds of similar quality might look the same, they would still be worth very different amounts.
Natural colored diamonds (fancy colored diamonds) are rarer and more valuable than white diamonds. We have a wide selection of fancy colored diamonds available. Prices will vary depending on size and color. When paying for a yellow diamond, make sure you get the most out of your investment by choosing a stone with a high color intensity. The rarest diamonds are colored diamonds, and rightly so.
They are the most valuable diamonds to ever exist on earth. A fancy intense or vivid color intensity diamond will cost more per carat than a normal (white) diamond of similar characteristics.
A secondary color affects the value of yellow diamonds
The color of a yellow diamond is not defined by a single color, instead it is a combination of all the colors in the spectrum.
The color aspect of a diamond can be divided into two areas – the color strength and intensity (the saturation of the diamond’s body color) and the occurrence of secondary hues and overtones.
Those hues and their intensity may influence a stone’s overall appearance, but don’t influence a stone’s value as much as intensity. When you hear yellow diamond, you usually mean pure yellow diamonds. However, yellow and canary diamonds and other natural fancy colored diamonds are often found with secondary colors. Combinations such as orange yellow, green yellow and brownish yellow are very common.
It isn’t easy to compare prices between different types of diamonds because they vary so much. But if a diamond is mixed with a more valuable color, then it will cost you more. For example, greenish-yellow and orange-yellow diamonds cost much more than pure yellows. The color influence a lot the final value of the diamond.
And the more saturated yellow is – the higher price it can cost. This is due to rareness of yellow diamonds.
Particularly, fancy intense yellow diamonds may be even harder to come by than fancy colored red or pink diamonds. What differentiates orange yellow diamonds from its sister brown yellow diamonds is the intensity of the color. Orange yellow diamonds are more saturated and so more expensive than the lesser saturated brownish yellow diamonds.

The diamond clarity chart goes as follows: IF clarity, VVS1 clarity, VVS2 clarity, VS1 clarity, VS2 clarity, SI1 clarity, SI2 clarity, I1 clarity, I2 clarity. IF is the highest value (flawless) and I2 is the lowest (included level 2).
There is a considerable difference in price between a VS1 and a VS2, with VVS1 and VVS2 prices falling in between. The GIA also has another category, called “fancy,” which is above VVS2.
There is a noticeable difference between these “groups” of diamonds. Yellow diamonds are known to possess higher clarity grades than most other colors of diamonds. Finding yellow diamonds with VS clarity and higher is relatively easy between these “groups” of diamonds.

The difference between yellow diamonds and white diamonds

Diamonds have always been a symbol of luxury and status. They are elegant, sparkle, and give off an aspirational glow. The color diamond is the most treasured gemstone in the world. As the symbol of a couple’s love, it is a timeless gift. However, these days many diamonds are becoming bolder and breaking the typical traditional choices by choosing more unique options.
Chosen over white diamonds, yellow diamonds are an expression of one’s personality. The true combination of beauty and value, yellow diamonds display a multitude of colors that take the breath away. The brilliance we are all familiar with is there too.

Buying yellow diamonds

Jewelry stores usually hold one or two white goods, but they won’t invest heavily in many due to the high demand for other appliances.
Yellow diamonds are a classic choice for engagement rings. They are desirable and attractive, but like any diamond, they must be selected carefully.
