Why Buy a Yellow Diamond Ring?

Why Buy a Yellow Diamond Ring?

When you think of bright coloured Gemstones you can’t get more sophisticated and luxurious than the yellow diamond. The yellow hue reminds you of summer, sunshine and the beach, thus transporting you to a sunny vacation each time you peer into its stunning centre. If you want to add a splash of colour to your jewellery collection, look no further. Diamond Heaven explains why you should buy a yellow diamond ring.

Worthwhile Investment

Yellow diamonds stand out from other diamonds and gemstones due to their bold colour and understood rarity, making them a valuable jewellery investment compared with many alternatives on the market. The Cora Sun Drop is one of the most famous yellow diamonds sold at an auction. This pear-shaped yellow diamond went under the hammer for over $10 million (£7.9 million in GBP) in 2011. A yellow diamond engagement ring is an excellent choice if you want something that stands out from the crowd and will always hold great value.

Various Yellow Shades to Choose for Your Ring

Natural yellow diamonds are very distinguishable from diamonds graded in the GIA D-Z colour scale as natural yellow diamonds have a bright vibrant yellow colour beyond the Z grade. This vibrancy is from the presence of nitrogen, which is the most common impurity in the gemstone. Yellow Diamonds are known as fancy diamonds which are rarer to find, and the grading process for fancy diamonds is different from colourless stones with various grades, which depends on the saturation and other factors. The GIA Coloured Diamond Grading System assigns six colour grades for yellow diamonds:

  • Fancy Light
  • Fancy
  • Fancy Dark
  • Fancy Deep
  • Fancy Intense
  • Fancy Vivid

With your yellow diamond ring, the colour may appear darker or lighter and can be emphasised once the diamond is secured in its setting. A yellow diamond ring with yellow gold metal can create the illusion of a deeper yellow. While a ring with white gold metal makes the yellow diamond’s colour appear lighter and stand out brighter. When buying your yellow diamond ring, consider the ring metal you choose and how it can impact the yellow diamond’s appearance.

Yellow Diamonds are Versatile


Selecting the cut and clarity of your yellow diamond can allow it to showcase its signature yellow colour better. While most cuts work well, elongated shapes are more popular for fancy diamonds. However, it’s always down to personal preference when choosing the cut and shape for your yellow diamond. Consider selecting an oval, cushion, radiant, or pear-cut yellow diamond ring, with the facets on these cuts you will see the perfect reflection of light and appreciate the yellow hue of the diamond.

Associated with Positive Energy

Yellow diamonds are commonly associated with positive energy. The bright yellow hue on your diamond ring also represents hope, creative energy and inner strength. If you are celebrating an upcoming anniversary or birthday, a yellow diamond ring is the perfect present to give for any occasion.

Perfect for Family Heirlooms


Like blue sapphires, yellow diamond rings are a great choice for family heirlooms. Over time, your ring will become part of your family’s traditions and history. It means that future generations of your family can wear and treasure your yellow diamond ring when passed down to them and you can rest assured it will always hold a great value due to its rarity.
