How Color Diamonds and I first Met

Well hello there, my beautiful color diamonds!

It was just a few years ago that my husband began his career in the fancy color diamonds industry. As far as I knew, the only diamonds that existed were colorless diamonds. When my spouse said to me that he’s going to be working with fancy color diamonds my reaction was: HUH? What’s THAT? Aren’t all color stones gem stones??

Well, Apparently not!

Many questions followed! I LOVE diamonds (conflict free, obviously!) and I was so excited that my spouse was getting into the field. It was as though all of the questions I had about my new discovery just tumbled out one after the other…

How do they color the diamonds?? Are they heated diamonds? How on earth does a stone change from a colorless diamond to a fancy color? What colors do these diamonds come in? Are they more expensive? Why would someone want a colorful diamond in their engagement ring when most of the diamonds in engagement rings are colorless? It’s been a few years since, and I still remember his answers to my questions!


It didn’t take very long before I myself went ahead and designed my ring, with a fancy light yellow diamond as the center stone. I love how unique and different it is. The sparkle and color are so exciting! The colorless diamonds look dull next to the splash of colorful diamonds!
