A fun and uplifting color yellow diamonds bring joy and harmony. They are naturally color graded making for beautiful natural shades of yellow. The yellow in the diamonds occurs because of a natural process where the presence of nitrogen within the gem stone causes the blue and violet range of color in the visible light spectrum and therefore shines yellow. Nitrogen is extremely natural in diamonds. So much so that the base of all diamonds, not just the yellow ones, is nitrogen itself. Now the fancy color diamonds have nitrogen not only at an atomic level but also at a molecular level too. This is how the gemological experts categorise fancy color diamonds. There are two types. Type I diamonds which are the ones that do contain nitrogen and account for almost around 98% of all natural diamonds that are found. Meanwhile the other much rarer Type II diamonds don’t.

Thinking about the bride to be and what their preferences may be when it comes to a specific style is also very important. Think about the jewelry that they generally wear. Is it different shapes?

The diamond cut
There are three important features when it comes to the diamond cut. Those are the brilliance, the diamond’s fire and finally the diamond’s scintillation. Let us go through these: brilliance: is the reflection of that white light after it hits a diamond’s facets. It is the contrast between these white light flashes and the shadows created by the diamond’s cut. The greater the contrast, the greater a diamond’s brilliance. Fire: refers to the colors that a diamond’s interior reflects; they’re flashes of color on the visible spectrum that result from the diamond scattering white light into the colors of the rainbow. Scintillation: The amount of sparkle a diamond produces, and the pattern of light and dark areas caused by reflections within the diamond. The “cut” grade refers to the diamond’s ability to produce all three with maximum results based on its proportions.
