In diamonds, rarity equals value. With diamonds in the normal range value is based on the absence of colour. This is because colourless diamonds are the rarest.
With fancy colour diamonds the rarest and most valuable colours are saturated pinks, blues, and greens. In all cases, even very slight colour differences can have a big impact on value.
Compared to fancy yellows and browns, diamonds with a noticeable hint of any other hue are considerably more rare. Even in light tones and weak saturation, as long as they show colour in the face-up position they qualify as fancy colours.
Red, green and blue diamonds – with medium to dark tones and moderate saturations – are extremely rare.
Grading fancy colour diamonds is complex and specialised. It takes highly trained laboratory graders to complete the process accurately.
