Color is the most important characteristic when selecting a natural yellow diamond. The deeper the color, the more rare, and therefore more expensive. Deeper colored yellow diamonds are sometimes called canary diamonds.




A yellow diamond will usually have an undertone that is one of two colors. The first is an orangey color that gives the diamond a warm or golden color. The second is a greenish color that gives the diamond a cool or lemony color. Neither undertone color is more valuable; it is a personal preference.

Yellow diamonds are cut to maximize their color, while white diamonds are cut to maximize their brilliance. The most brilliant cut is a round, and therefore most white diamonds are cut in a round shape. But the round shape usually lessens the amount of color in a yellow diamond, so you’ll find fewer of them. Square types of cuts maximize a diamond’s color, so you’ll find a larger percentage of these.




Prices of white diamonds are based upon a larger supply and very active trading,. Yellow diamonds are much rarer, and not able to be compared in the same way. The rule of thumb is the deeper the color, the higher the price. Very yellow natural diamonds, known as vivid yellow diamonds, can fetch prices that greatly exceed prices of white diamonds. On the other hand, light yellow diamonds are less than white diamonds.

Unforgettable and vibrant, colored diamonds have been a focus of many unforgettable designs. Here we share a few yellow diamond engagement ring designs.
