FANCY COLORED DIAMONDS

​​​​​​​

Our fascination with diamonds is firmly rooted in the rarity of their existence. Their scarcity is one of the most integral parts of their value. This is the principle reason why colored diamonds are coveted so highly by their owners. Only one in 10,000 diamonds qualify as a fancy color. The grading scale is as follows: Fancy Light, Fancy, Fancy Intense, Fancy Vivid .

The more vibrant the color, the more valuable the diamond is. Yellow and brown are the most common of the fancy colors while pink, blue, and green are the rarest and most prized. Even rarer is the red diamond, of which only a handful are known to exist in the world today.

What do I need to know when buying a fancy color diamond?

The traditional color scale (D‐Z) does not apply to fancy colors (see image above). Hue and vibrancy are the most important factors in valuing a color diamond. Inclusions (clarity) play a much less important role in pricing unless they significantly detract from the diamond’s face up appearance or the gem’s overall durability. It is also important to note that fancy shapes generally help intensify the natural color of the gemstone.

    “Unbelievable, hassle free experience. From texting back and forth with Josh on a Saturday on the VIP event and the engagement ring options, to receiving and email from Dave that night with options for me to review to Tuesday going in and going in and purchasing while having a beer while I waited. Outstanding experience. Well done!”

You cannot match the quality of the product that Jim sells This is now a family tradition. Both my son in laws and my son buy from Marks. Will go nowhere else for quality fine jewelry.”

    “My experience at Marks Jewelers was wonderful. They created me a custom necklace that captured everything I could have possibly hoped for. The designers and Beth helped me work through my thoughts to create a piece that has deep meaning. Beth was amazing to work with and was patient with all my ideas. Thank you Beth and the team of designers.”

    “The Marks in Montgomeryville is the only jewelry store that I trust with all my jewelry repairs and purchases. I make the 40 min drive every time because I know I'm going to get incredible service from anyone there and great prices.”

    “I can’t rave enough about my experience with Marks Jewelers. Olivia spent hours with me to design a couple pieces of jewelry with stones I had and Jacqueline created a couple of molds perfecting it. The end result is better than I ever imagined. My experience was so personalized and professional. Quality and a great price!!”

    “I needed a 3-tier tier pearl necklace restrung and I brought it to Mark's Jewelers. Although it is costume jewelry, it has much sentimental value to my wife. I wasn't sure if they would work on costume jewelry oh, but they did! They did a fantastic job! The drop-off and pick-up experience was terrific! Everyone was so professional. I highly recommend this place! I will be back!”
