Natural coloured diamonds are rare, with only one out of approximately 10,000 carats being a coloured diamond. Among the colours you will find are pinks, purples, blues, green, orange and of course shiny, brilliant yellows. Their colour is due to variations in chemical composition during the stone’s formation; nitrogen is the element that gives diamonds their yellow colour. Ranging in tone from pale pastel hues to deeply saturated sunshine shades, names used to describe their colour vary from champagne to canary yellow! Yellow diamonds are a striking and beautiful option for those looking to add something a little bit unique to their jewellery collection.
