Fancy yellow diamond engagement rings have been gaining popularity in recent years. These diamonds are beautiful, unique and scarce. Natural diamonds are transparent crystals formed under high pressure and at high temperatures. In white diamonds, carbon atoms crystallize forming a diamond lattice. Yellow diamonds occur when trace amounts of nitrogen are present as an impurity in the carbon atoms. The rare and alluring fancy color diamonds coveted by many are ironically a byproduct of contamination.

White diamonds are more valuable when they are colorless and clear. Fancy yellow diamonds should not be confused with a yellow or brownish hue in a low quality color grading (N through Z) of a white diamond. The color of fancy yellow diamonds are graded based on three factors:

  • Saturation means the strength or intensity of the color
  • Hue indicates the dominant color of the stone
  • Tone describes how much lightness or darkness the stone retains
These three factors produce the following color grades:
  • Faint
  • Very Light
  • Light
  • Fancy Light
  • Fancy
  • Fancy Dark
  • Fancy Intense
  • Fancy Deep
  • Fancy Vivid

The selection of a fancy yellow diamond ring is truly about personal preference. While some people like the fancy vivid, or "canary diamond" others may like the softer hue of a light yellow stone. Some celebrities have made the yellow diamond engagement ring popular in recent years, including Heidi Klum, Kelly Clarkson, Rebecca Romijn and Carrie Underwood. These high-profile rings were all fashioned with a different stone size, yellow color and diamond cut. The versatility of a yellow diamond cut is the same as a white diamond, but cuts such as the Radiant cut can maximize the natural yellow color of a stone.
