Diamonds - General - What are “fancy coloured diamonds”?
Natural fancy coloured diamonds are an extremely rare, natural phenomenon of nature. If, while diamonds are being created deep inside the earth, they are exposed to certain trace elements, the result can be a fancy coloured diamond in almost any colour of the rainbow –yellow, pink, orange, red, blue, green, brown, black or grey.
As a product of nature shaped by millions of years of crystallization, fancy coloured diamonds are unique. Each diamond’s colour is the product of chance, and no two natural colour diamonds can be identical. In fact, it is this uniqueness that gives them their value.
