When it comes to jewelry, we want to show our taste, our discernment, and our style. Diamonds, as the saying goes, are a girl’s best friend, but many people don’t realize the wide variety of colors diamonds can be found in. Colored diamonds are rarer and are thus more coveted than traditional clear diamonds.
The rarest of the rare are yellow diamonds. Yellow diamonds can range in color from ever so slightly yellow to intensely yellow. The richer the yellow hue, the rarer the stone is.
This is an eye-catching stone that is as beautiful as it is rare. Having a unique, one-of-a-kind yellow diamond ring is an excellent way to show off your status and your style.
Where Are Yellow Diamonds Found?
Yellow diamonds, while rare, can be found in a variety of places throughout the world, but they are most common in South Africa. The diamonds will range in the depth and richness of color and the more deep, rich yellow the stone is, the rarer it is and so the more expensive it will be.
An intensely yellow diamond is a rare, unique, and stunning status symbol that can become part of a signature look.
The interesting thing about yellow diamonds is that color in diamonds usually reduces the value of the stone. Most people want a clear, bright, and sparkly stone and stones with slight hues indicate lesser quality diamonds. That is until the color becomes pronounced.
With these diamonds, yellow is the dominant color and when it is deep and intense, the value and rarity of the stone actually increase. Dull-colored stones are considered to be of lesser quality whereas richly colored stones are incredibly high-value items.
There are other colors of diamonds that can be of high value, but yellow diamonds are the most common among the rare diamonds and they are prized for their unique color. It has a depth of color that is unparalleled even by other naturally yellow stones, making it a prized diamond worldwide.
Many people love yellow diamonds as a statement stone in a ring because it is so eye-catching and unique. These stones can be found in any shape you would find a traditional clear diamond in and when paired with white or rose gold and even other stones, can create a truly unique and stunning piece of jewelry that will be the talk of the town.
What to Pair with Yellow Diamonds
Given that yellow diamonds are such a statement piece and one that you will want to take center stage in your look, it can be difficult to determine what might look good paired with a stunning yellow diamond ring. We recommend a simple cuff bracelet. A cuff bracelet is one that doesn’t fully extend around your wrist.
These can be found in simple and complex styles, but a classic, sleek cuff bracelet with clean lines and a simple design is a great option to pair with your signature yellow diamond ring. Cuff bracelets come in a variety of styles. They can be simple rose or white gold, stainless steel, or even a two-tone style. They can be wide or narrow and what will work best for you will depend on the outfit you are matching it with as well as your frame.
If you choose a cuff bracelet that is simply made from metal, you can choose to have a smooth or brushed finish, depending on your preferences. You might prefer an etched cuff bracelet that has a unique or complex design engraved into the piece. Or, perhaps, you want to add some more bling to your look, whether to compliment or to add to the sparkle of the ring.
You can find cuff bracelets that are studded with diamonds and other stones and there are so many choices out there that you can easily find the perfect pairing to go with even the most ornate yellow diamond ring.
