THE CHARM OF THE FANCY COLOR DIAMONDS
The word diamond evokes in all of us the image of a beautiful shimmering colorless crystal: few know that it exists instead in almost all the colors of the rainbow. These diamonds, called fancy colored diamonds or more simply fancy, are extremely rare; in fact it is estimated that only one out of ten thousand extracts can be defined as such. This rarity explains why, in the past, they were the prerogative of kings and emperors and today, especially after the opening of the Chinese and Indian markets, they are extremely sought after. Among the colored diamonds, fancy yellow, which in the past was called canary by the bright color of canary feathers, is the most common color and represents 60% of all colored diamonds, often extracted from South African mines. Its cognac and chocolate variants are highly appreciated.
Fancy yellow diamonds are characterized by color intensity and should not be confused with "yellow" diamonds, which are placed at the bottom of the color scale and therefore of value. The yellow color is given by the presence of nitrogen molecules which, absorbing the blue light, make the yellow emerge.
Very rare are the green diamonds, whose color is due to slight traces of natural radioactivity, and the blues, which present boron molecules: the rarest of all, however, is the red diamond, of which there are few specimens and almost all of which weigh less to the carat. Their color, whose genesis is not yet perfectly known, is probably due to the deformation of the stone structure and is concentrated in lamellae that gemmologists call pink graining. Close relatives of red diamonds are pink diamonds, recently discovered in the Argyle mine, in northern Australia, which are considered among the most seductive gems. A special case in the fancy category are the very rare diamonds called "chameleon", which change color when subjected to a heat source.
All colored diamonds are assessed on the base color and intensity of this color, divided into categories from the lightest to the most intense and valuable. The cut is of enormous importance in colored diamonds; due to their particular characteristics, rough fancy diamonds require expert and specialized cutters who know how to best bring out the color, usually not evenly spread in the crystals, often resorting to cuts of shape or fantasy. Finally, in colored diamonds, the determination of purity does not affect the value in the same way as it does in colorless diamonds; in fact it is the color tone and its intensity that determine its price.
