FANCY COLOR DIAMOND
Rare • Precious • Captivating
Colored diamonds weren't familiar or available until sixth-century India; actually, a grading system for colored diamonds only emerged in that era. Representatives of different ranks, statuses, and levels were allowed only to adorn diamonds of a specific color; hence, diamonds served as a badge of quality in society. All these were part of ancient India's system of class structure.
Rulers, priests, and people of high status in the system were allowed to own diamonds that weren't colorless. Warriors and Land Lords were allowed to wear "Brown Diamonds that resembled the color of the eye of the hare," Merchants were granted permission only to own Yellow Diamonds. Members of the lower levels in the society were assigned diamonds the black or greyish color. Whiles Kings, however, were free to choose diamonds of any color they preferred.
Apart from the traditional colorless sparkling diamonds, diamonds come in various colors, such as Red(rarest), yellow, brown, blue, green, pink, and more. Colorless natural diamonds are classified on the scale from D - Z. At the end of this range is where colored natural diamonds fall (i.e., X-Y-Z range). In this range of colors, diamonds begin to show traces of yellowish or brownish tones. This is the start of the Fancy Yellow Diamond and Fancy Brown diamond scale.
Any diamond with a strong presence of color is known as a Fancy Coloured Diamond.
Fancy Coloured Natural Diamonds are much rarer compared to their white counterparts, highly sought after for their impeccable rich, beautiful, and sensation colors. They fetch a premium price per carat weight due to high-profile auctions, another factor in their immense awareness and cost.
