About Yellow Colors of Diamond

Canary Diamonds are considered one of the most rare, beautiful diamonds. While the GIA diamond scale ranges from D-Z, further down the scale a diamond will reach the color area of fancy yellow or Canary diamond.

The color of a diamond is composed from the combination of hue, tone, and saturation. Hue is the basic shade that identifies the color. The tone is the amount of lightness or darkness, while the saturation is the intensity of the color.

While the GIA recognizes 27 hues for fancy-colored diamonds, each hue represents a range. To clasify each range, each hue is accompanied with specific grades. These grade levels are extremely important for colored diamonds because they determine the value. If a diamond has a stronger hue, it becomes more valuable.

How do yellow diamonds get their color?

Diamonds are conceived of 99.95% of carbon, while the other 0.05% consists of traces of other elements. For fancy yellow diamonds, traces of Nitrogen give them their natural yellow color. The more Nitrogen that exists in the atomic structure, the strength of color will increase. In other words, the more Nitrogen, the stronger yellow a diamond will be.

What is makes a yellow diamond considered Canary?

A diamond is considered a natural Canary when its hue is a pure yellow in color. This diamond group is divided into categories: Fancy Light Yellow, Fancy Yellow, Fancy Intense Yellow, and Fancy Vivid Yellow. These classifications can affect price dramatically. While a 1.00 carat fancy light yellow can cost from $4,000-$6000, a 1.00carat fancy vivid yellow diamond can cost from $20,000-$30,000. As you can tell, color is critical in determining rarity and overall value.

How does fluorescence affect a fancy yellow diamond?

Fluorescence in white diamonds is typically viewed negatively; however, in colored diamonds, especially yellow, it can increase the intensity, which adds value to the diamond. While many people think that fluorescence only comes in blue, it can also come in colors such as green, white, orange, and yellow.

How does the clarity of a yellow diamond compare to other types of diamonds?

While there are many different types of colored diamonds, with fancy yellow diamonds, you have a much better chance of finding a clean stone. According to the GIA, in 2003, 80% if yellow diamonds graded were a VS clarity or better.

What shapes are most popular for yellow diamonds?

While round brilliant cuts are popular for white diamonds, this type of cut reduces the appearance of color due to the amount of light that reflects through the stone. Therefore, it is more popular for yellow diamonds to be cut in squarish shapes such as radiant or princess. It is also common for yellow diamonds to be oval cut.

What Is world Top 20 Yellow Diamonds in the world ?

since the yellow diamond has its own unique beauty among other colored diamonds. Like ‘The light from yellow diamond’ which is believed to increase the “aura” and the “charming” of someone that wear it, or  reflect confidence, intelligence and worldly cache. So, I got inititive to list about top 20 famous yellow diamonds (some of them remain no name)…so here my list, you can find it on home pages (notegolddiamond.blogspot.com)

Tips for Mounting

To enhance the color, several techniques are often used when setting yellow diamonds. One technique is to contrast the yellow diamonds by setting other colored diamonds around or beside it. Sometimes, a bezel style is better than a prong style depending on the diamond. Additionally, setters will use higher karat prongs to amplify to color of the lighter yellows. Lastly, if a ring is white gold or platinum, a yellow gold basket is used to to reflect a more intense yellow color. The diamond itself will often determine which type of setting is best.

Largest diamond in galaxy predicts future of solar system

Largest diamond in galaxy predicts future of solar system

Largest diamond planet in galaxy predicts future of solar system

Astronomers discovered the largest diamond of all times in space. The weight of the precious stone reportedly makes up ten billion trillion trillion carats or five million trillion trillion pounds).

The space diamond is virtually an enormous chunk of crystallized carbon, 4,000 kilometers in diameter. The stone is located at a distance of 50 light years from Earth, in the Constellation Centaurus.

Scientists believe that the diamond is the heart of an extinct star that used to shine like the Sun. Astronomers have already dubbed the space diamond as Lucy in a tribute to the Beatles song ‘Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds.’

“You would need a jeweler’s loupe the size of the Sun to grade this diamond!” says astronomer Travis Metcalfe (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics), who leads a team of researchers that discovered the giant gem.

The cosmic stone completely outclasses all diamonds that have ever been found on Earth. The largest diamond weighing 546 carats was found in South African Republic. The diamond, The Star of Africa, resides in the Crown Jewels of England. The Star of Africa was cut from the largest diamond ever found on Earth, a 3,100-carat gem.

Lucy, also known as BPM 37093, is actually a crystallized white dwarf. A white dwarf is the hot core of a star, left over after the star uses up its nuclear fuel and dies. It is made mostly of carbon and is coated by a thin layer of hydrogen and helium gases.

The white dwarf is not only radiant but also harmonious. It rings like a gigantic gong, undergoing constant pulsations. “By measuring those pulsations, we were able to study the hidden interior of the white dwarf, just like seismograph measurements of earthquakes allow geologists to study the interior of the Earth. We figured out that the carbon interior of this white dwarf has solidified to form the galaxy’s largest diamond,” says Metcalfe.

Astronomers say that our Sun will die in five billion years and become a white dwarf too. About two billion years after it will turn into a similar diamond that will continue to sparkle in the center of the solar system forever.

How to Build Quality Backlinks

Written by : NGDlover

Backlink is outhere and we dont have total control on them. My experienced relate to backlink is not much as any SEO master have, but I’m eager to share, I hope you will find a piece of gold inside my article, or my articles…. The difficult side about backlink is base on the fact that we rely on others to build it, although this is partially true. You certainly can discuss about the detail like anchor text, and many aspects there that can be negotiated.

Getting Backlinks By Natural Way

Base on fact that if you have a good page, people will start to make a linkback to good pages you have, then the backlink become a part of  the page rank algorithm. Ideally, the more good pages you have, the more backlinks you will receive, but it is different in practise, and we cannot rely on this.

Diagram of How a Diamond Formed

further explanation of  How Do The Earth Form a Diamond ?

Below is a diagram that explain a vent or pipelike opening occurs just below  the mantle area where the extreme  molten material lay down.  A crack in the base of the mantle opens into the pipelike vent and the molten flow shoots upward under volcanic-like pressure carrying with it surrounding material containing the formed diamonds within it. This wondrous elevator ride to the surface carries diamonds in two types of magma – kimberlite and lamproite.

Process to be a nature rough diamond is hardly to estimate, scientist is just guessing up till now, nobody cannot say exactly how long the process takes. However, that if everything base material and condition considering well and ready , maybe it take only a mlittle time of days for carbon atoms to be transformed into such a rough diamond structure. But, when it come to a natural color diamonds, the times to make it will take millions, if not a billion, years .

Meaning of Intrinsic Value

Intrinsic value, in general, is the argument that the value of a product is intrinsic within the product rather than dependent on the buyer’s perception.

In commodity money, intrinsic value can be partially or entirely due to the desirable features of the object as a medium of exchange and a store of value. Examples of such features include divisibility; easily and securely storable and transportable; scarcity; and hard to counterfeit. When objects come to be used as a medium of exchange they lower the high transaction costs associated with barter and other in-kind transactions.

In numismatics, intrinsic value is the value of the metal, typically a precious metal, in a coin. For example, if gold trades at a price of USD 450 per fine troy ounce ($14/g), a coin minted from one troy ounce of fine gold would have an intrinsic value of USD 450. When the intrinsic value becomes greater than the face value, the coins are in danger of being removed from circulation in large numbers (an expression of Gresham’s law). When the coin is in use as money this effect can, at the margin, mitigate forces that might otherwise cause inflation. When copper prices skyrocketed in the mid-to-late 1970s, there was a fear that the U.S. one-cent piece might succumb to this fate. In fact, this did happen, leading the Mint to change the composition of the cent in 1982.

Due to this intrinsic value, an ounce of gold measured in hundred years ago is exactly similar with ounce gold today and must be similar with ounce gold on the next hundred years. This become a base reason for the gold to be a truly anti inflation investment tools.

If we look at other popular investment tools, such as oil and stocks, as a comparison, they are not fit with term anti inflation tools. They are new to be an investment vehicle (start only from 18 centuries), and the demand for them even could disappear in the market. See further explanation here >> Gold And Its Intrinsic Value<<
