Leibish also has expanded their ‘world of color’ to include high quality precious gems like ruby, sapphire, and emeralds to their jewelry designs.

Most Important ‘C’ – Fancy Colored Diamonds

Fancy colored diamonds differ from their colorless cousins in terms of valuation. For example, color, is by far the most important C with intensity of color playing a large part in overall rarity and value.

There are 12 main fancy colors including Yellow, Pink, Blue, Green, Orange, Brown (Champagne), Violet, Gray, Purple, Red, Fancy Black and Fancy White which may contain one single pure color or have up to three overtones of other colors. With fancy colored diamonds, the color and intensity are valued most and can range from faint, very light, light, fancy light, fancy, fancy intense, fancy vivid, and fancy deep.

Following color, carat weight, clarity and cut grade are all secondary factors in terms of value. Fancy colored diamonds are loved for their unique color and extreme rarity. Of course, like their colorless cousins, all fancy colored diamonds will have an accompanying grade report from GIA, Argyle, IGI, or a Leibish & Co. in-house report.

Why Fancy Colored Diamonds?

Fancy colored diamonds are in many ways more precious and unique than any other gem. They are certainly extremely rare; only 1/10,000 diamond carats mined will result in a fancy colored diamond. Add to this the color intensity, carat weight, and clarity and you’ll see why some of the investment diamonds found on are so highly valued.

In the end, whether you prefer color and it’s many hues and shades or the crisp white translucency of colorless diamonds, the fact remains that diamonds are among Mother Earth’s finest creations. If you are in the market for something colorful in your jewelry collection, don’t miss Leibish & Co. for their stunning fancy color diamond options.
