In recent times we have all seen great examples of fancy colored diamond engagement rings on the rich and famous. Fancy colored diamond engagement rings have been increasing in popularity quite dramatically over the past few years. A natural fancy colored diamond is generally rarer than a traditional white diamond, and this will be reflected in the cost.

Fancy colored diamonds can vary in cost depending on the actual color, as in pink, black or red, and then its intensity. Along with the more traditional white diamonds, colored diamonds share all the wonderful properties that make them so ideal for an engagement ring stone.

Fancy colored diamonds are available in more than just pink, yellow, and black. Other colors include red, purple, green, orange, violet, grey, blue, and the various browns, sometimes known as champagnes and cognacs.

The rarest of the natural colored diamonds is red, followed by green. A pink diamond will be more expensive than a yellow. The blue, orange and green will be even more costly than a pink. Black and brown fancy colored diamonds can actually be less costly than their natural white cousins, and can be a great selection for those couples wanting natural diamonds with a little color and better value for money.

Natural colored diamonds can achieve their colorings from several ways. The green diamonds have been exposed to radiation while being formed under the earth’s crust. Natural orange diamonds get their coloring from the presence of nitrogen and carbon. Blue diamonds generally get their magnificent color from containing boron, and no nitrogen.

Most of the pink and brown diamonds are mined from the Argyle diamond mine in Australia. Colored diamonds can also be mined from South Africa, Brazil, and Venezuala.

Whatever the color of the diamond, the grading system remains the same for pricing. At the lower end of the value scale is the faintest color, moving through to light, fancy, fancy dark, and then the more desirable and valuable being fancy intense, fancy deep, and fancy vivid.

Some celebrities with colored diamond engagement rings include Mariah Carey with pink, Carmen Electra with black, and Heidi Klum with a yellow, sometimes known as Canary.

Engagement rings with colored diamonds can be a great way to incorporate colors, from very subtle to intense, while still maintaining the hard wearing properties of the diamonds themselves. At the moment, the most popular of the diamond color is yellow. However, whatever your favorite color, there is going to be a colored diamond engagement ring to match or complement.
