Q: What is a fancy color diamond? 

A: Fancy color diamonds are yellow and brown diamonds that exhibit color beyond the Z range, or diamonds that exhibit any other color face-up. These rare specimens come in every color of the spectrum, including, most importantly, blue, green, pink, and red. (GIA)

Q: What is the most expensive fancy diamond color? 

A: To date, the most valuable and highest price sold fancy color diamond, is the Pink Star, a 59.60 carat Fancy Vivid Pink, Oval cut diamond. This was sold in 2017 at… wait for it… $71.2 million. This pink diamond shattered all previous records and dethroned both the Oppenheimer blue for title of most valuable colored stone of all time, and the Graff Pink for the title of the most expensive pink diamond ever sold at an auction.

Q: How can I craft a custom ring with a fancy color lab-grown diamond from MiaDonna?

Facts and Information About Fancy Color Diamonds (Sourced from GIA)

Only 1 in 10,000 diamonds has a fancy color. Red diamonds are so rare that only a handful are actually known to exist. The most valuable fancy color diamond hues are pink, blue and green. Fancy shapes such as radiant and cushion cut are commonly used to maximize the intensity of the color. The world’s first diamond color-grading system dates back to sixth-century India. The system was based on the country’s ancient class structure. Members of different classes and status levels were only allowed to own and wear diamonds of a specific color, depending on their social class. Diamonds served as a badge of rank and showed the community what your role was.
