The diamond's allure isn't just in its stunning sparkle but also its breathtaking variety of colours. Known as "fancies", coloured diamonds offer a rainbow of options from yellows and browns to rare blues, greens, and even pinks and reds.
The colour in these diamonds comes from the presence of certain elements or distortions to the crystal lattice during formation. For instance, nitrogen creates a yellow diamond, while boron results in blue. The more intense the colour, the more valuable the diamond generally is.
Each coloured diamond carries its own unique meaning and symbolism, allowing the wearer to express individuality and personal sentiment.
