Fancy Color diamonds continue to increase in popularity. Many celebrities have been seen wearing fancy colored diamond jewelry, with TV’s Oprah Winfrey known to be an aficionado of fancy colored diamonds. Singer Jennifer Lopez was seen sporting a Yellow Fancy Color cushion cut 50.40-carat diamond ring set in 18k yellow gold and ebony wood when she was a guest judge on the show American Idol. Depending on your budget and personal preference, we have an extensive choice of natural fancy color diamonds as well as HPHT and irradiated fancy color diamonds.

As colored diamonds become increasingly rare, natural fancy color diamonds will continue to present fantastic investment opportunities besides being a very special gift for someone who will appreciate their rare beauty. In order to maximize your budget you might want to consider choosing HPHT or irradiated color treated diamonds. By purchasing a diamond that has undergone these treatments, not only will you have a beautiful diamond, but at a saving of 45% – 70% less than a natural fancy color diamond with a similar cut, clarity, carat weight and color.

4. Clarity Enhanced Diamonds

Diamonds that have undergone the clarity enhancement treatment are currently very desirable. The diamonds’ grading is significantly improved by the insertion of a silicone-like liquid that fills miniscule cracks called inclusions. The result of this process for the customer is that a larger stone can now be purchased without compromising the quality of the diamond. Clarity enhanced diamonds are very popular on diamond stud earrings, where a large diamond is often particularly desirable, adding it to the list of this season’s diamond jewelry trends.

5. The Oval Cut Is Back

After the Round Cut Diamond, the Oval Cut is now the second most popular diamond cut. For a woman who wants a more unique look, an Oval Cut Diamond has all the brilliance and shine of a round diamond, just with that little distinctiveness she’s looking for. The oval cut looks impressive on a ring, particularly for those looking to accentuate their slender fingers. As an example, take a look at this 14K white gold setting solitaire sing, with a 0.71 Ct, H color, SI2 clarity Oval center stone.
