“She smiled and said with an ecstatic air: “It shines like a little diamond”,
“This moment. It is round, it hangs in empty space like a little diamond; I am eternal.”
When it comes to diamonds, there is an air of timelessness that surrounds them.
For example, the words ‘diamond jewelry’ will evoke mental images of Audrey Hepburn’s Breakfast At Tiffany’s enchanting persona, or Nichole Kidman’s alluring Satine declaring this rough-cut jewel ‘a girl’s best friend’.
Not only are diamonds timeless in our eyes, they are also judged as determining the value of a relationship.
For example, when it comes to engagement rings: the bigger the rock, the stronger the commitment. A gift of diamond earrings or a necklace is considered appropriate for anniversaries, special occasions (and let’s not forget apologies!).
Lastly, diamonds are often seen to embody the human capacity for greatness.
For example, the phrase ‘diamond in the rough’ describes a person at the edge of realizing their potential. Quotes about overcoming adversity often refer to the process of refining a diamond and use the glimmering jewels as a symbol of what we can become through hardship.
We know why diamonds matter. We have whole ideals and industries built around them. However, deciding what type of diamond jewellery to spend your money on and why can often feel overwhelming - especially if you’re on a budget!
What are yellow diamonds?
Yellow diamonds are diamonds which, when viewed from the “face-up” position, give off a rich, warm hue. This is caused by small amounts of nitrogen that are trapped within the diamond’s crystal structure.
While it’s true that diamonds ranked at the bottom of colorless color grading scales have traces of yellow, this does not apply to ones with a bright, vivid hue. Sound confusing? Basically, it depends on the specific category of yellow.
Pure yellow diamonds, with their unique glow, are considered by many to be the most valuable yellow gemstone in the world!
What are they worth?
As mentioned above, the market value of a yellow diamond depends greatly on its hue. For example, categories like Fancy Yellow will be more affordable than a colorless diamond of the same quality. That being said, a Fancy Intense Yellow diamond or a Fancy Vivid Yellow diamond will be worth considerably more than a colorless diamond.
What do they symbolize?
The colour yellow may not seem all that romantic. After all, there’s a plethora of woeful suggestions as to the meaning of a yellow rose. And not many bridal boutiques put saffron A-lines in their windows.
When it comes to diamonds, however, yellow takes the title belt. Not only does it’s rich hue suggest purity and warmth, it’s also associated with happiness, joy and prosperity.
And who doesn’t want more of those three things in their life?
Why are they unique?
We all love a glistening white rock, but while clear diamonds tend to dominate the jewelry market, the truth is that yellow diamonds have them beat. Not only are they stunning, but they also stand out as rich sunbursts against a backdrop of colorless diamonds - making them both beautiful and unique (just like the loved one they are destined for).
