1. THE HARD FACTS

Naturally occurring Fancy Yellow, otherwise known as Canary Diamonds are absolutely fascinating.

Firstly, when referring to diamonds, “Fancy” isn’t simply an overused adjective, it’s the technical term for naturally occurring diamonds of colour, as outlined by the Gemological Institute of America, or GIA.

The next query that often presents itself is “Are yellow diamonds worth more than white diamonds?” We cover this topic thoroughly on our website, but to sum it up, “...Vivid Fancy color diamonds are extremely rare and very valuable.” - GIA.

The simple reason for the value of Fancy Yellow diamonds is their rarity; for every 1,000 white diamonds mined, only 1 Fancy Yellow diamond is found. There are many other factors that influence worth; being mainly the classic 5c’s; cut, clarity, colour, carat & confidence. You can read more about that here. The only difference between the evaluation of a Fancy Yellow diamond and a white diamond is that generally, the more colour a yellow diamond contains the more valuable the stone, whereas the opposite is true for a white diamond. Now that we’ve covered the basics, let’s peruse.

2. VINTAGE STYLE YELLOW DIAMOND RINGS

Looking for a piece that harks back to another era? Vintage style Fancy Yellow diamond rings are in high demand. The marriage of truly classical design with the finest, ethically sourced diamonds and virgin metals affords one the sentimentality of a vintage engagement ring, without any of the anxiety as to the ethical manner in which the elements were acquired, or concerns as to the overall structural integrity of the ring.

This Fancy Yellow three stone ring is a remarkable example of the aforementioned vintage style yellow diamond ring. And as is so evident, the sparkle of this oval yellow diamond is quite staggering.

Another inspired illustration of the vintage style is the Oval Fancy Yellow diamond ring.

And once again we have all the charm of a vintage piece, with none of the ethical and structural concerns.

It's the attention-to-detail that makes a Shimansky engagement ring; only the very finest diamonds qualify to be cut and polished into the classic brilliant cut, and our Oval Fancy Yellow diamond ring has six of these complementing the yellow diamond centre stone. The reason for this is twofold. Firstly, we do not compromise on quality, ever. And secondly, the fire, brilliance and scintillation of these diamonds needs to be consistent. That’s what makes it a Shimansky.

Our final vintage inspired exemplar and coupe de grace is the frankly astonishing five stone Oval Shape tube set ring with Fancy Yellow diamonds. This piece pays homage to past, but also serves as a paradigm as to what can be achieved when one combines classical design elements with contemporary techniques and the finest possible materials. But there’s more to Fancy Yellow diamonds than solely vintage appeal.
